Michael Shay and collaborators find surprising event in turbulent space
Scientists have discovered an entirely new magnetic phenomenon in the outer reaches of Earth’s magnetic field with the help of four NASA spacecraft, according to a new study published in the journal Nature.
A new partnership with the Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy (SARA) gives researchers and stargazers from the University of Delaware and nearby Mount Cuba Astronomical Observatory access to three far-flung telescopes and the superior perspectives they offer on the night sky.
After graduating from the University of Delaware in 1987, Prof. Tanatar worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and he is currently a faculty member at Bilkent University in Turkey. He is the author of more than 150 papers in theoretical condensed matter physics, as well as of the so-called Tanatar-Ceperley exchange-correlation functional, often used in density functional theory calculations.
Contributions to the University of Delaware may be designated for a particular Department. Gifts help us support activities that would be difficult to fund from our regular budget, such as scholarships, graduate and undergraduate student awards, support for students to travel to conferences, and outreach programs.
