Jordan Moxon will discuss:
"Self force on a scalar charge in Kerr spacetime: inclined circular orbits"
Robert Wharton will discuss:
"Theory and Simulations of Refractive Substructure in Resolved Scatter-Broadened Images"
and how it may affect observations with the Event Horizon Telescope, as described in the following two papers:
http://arxiv.org/abs/1409.0530 "Discovery of Substructure in the Scatter-broadened Image of Sgr A*"
http://arxiv.org/abs/1409.4690 "Imaging an Event Horizon: Mitigation of Scattering toward Sagittarius A*"
