Lipids remain one of the most enigmatic classes of biological molecules. Lipids were likely one of the first components necessary for life, yet our understanding of how lipid membranes could have arisen spontaneously is a mystery. Human cells produce thousands of unique lipid species, but the purpose for such diversity remains unknown. Dysregulation of lipid metabolism is a key factor in some of... More >

The state of a system in the low density limit should be described (at the statistical level) by the kinetic density, i.e. by the probability of finding a particle with position x and velocity v at time t.

Lecture | November 13 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library

This talk picks up a melancholic thread in assessments of the end of the Cold War, when the triumph of liberal democracy and capitalism over really existing socialism led academics and public intellectuals to pronounce the end of utopian ambitions.
