Vorticies from low-mass planet formation
James Owen, NASA Hubble Fellow, Institute for Advanced Study,

I will discuss some of the recently imaged asymmetric protoplanetary discs discovered by ALMA.  I will describe how these might be large scale vorticies and present a model for how they arise as a direct consequence of planet formation.  [Please note: unusual venue - 201 E. Bridge]
