61st LCN2 seminar

Speaker: Serena Viti (Leiden Observatory - Leiden University)

Title: Astrochemical networks


In Astrochemistry - the field that studies molecules in space - building accurate and comprehensive chemical reaction networks is central to our understanding of how molecules can form and be destroyed in the harsh environments of our galaxies. However, due to the very non linear nature of chemistry  as well as the wide range of physical conditions we find in space, determining the right sets of species and possible reactions between them is not trivial. In this talk I shall give an overview of the challenges we face when designing and optimizing networks, as well as possible avenues for solutions, including sensitivity analyses, data-driven methods and machine learning.

Afterwards there will be drinks in the Foobar.
