Over 400 million people live without access to basic communication services, largely in rural areas. Community-based networks, and particularly community cellular networks, can sustainably support services even in these extremely rural areas where commercial network operators cannot.
In this talk, I will identify key challenges these community cellular networks face for reaching scale, and... More >

Wilson loops are important observables in gauge theory. In this talk, we study half-BPS Wilson loops of a large class of five dimensional supersymmetric quiver gauge theories with 8 supercharges, in a nontrivial instanton background. The Wilson loops are codimension 4 defects of the quiver gauge theory, and their interaction with self-dual instantons is captured by a 1d ADHM quantum mechanics. We... More >
Seminar | May 13 | 3-4 p.m. | Cory Hall, 540A/B
Silicon photonics is a rapidly maturing platform for optical communication and sensing. As systems leveraging silicon photonics have grown in size and complexity, so too has the demand for high performance silicon photonics components. In order to meet these demands, we propose a hierarchical approach to design and optimization of silicon photonics components. Our approach applies simple physical... More >

Sam Raymond, Doctoral Candidate, Center for Computational Engineering, MIT
Abstract: Machine Learning and numerical simulation represent two distinct approaches to researchers and engineers wanting to predict and understand the behavior of complex systems. Machine Learning trusts entirely in the data to hold the key and numerical simulation relies solely on the fundamental laws of nature. While each approach has been wildly successful in solving problems in science and... More >

In 1969, one of the longest student-led strikes in UC Berkeley history gave birth to a movement that has lasted for five decades. The strike was organized by the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF), a coalition of African American, Asian American, Chicanx, and Native American student organizations. Inspired by liberation movements at home and abroad and the 1968 San Francisco State College TWLF... More >

In collaboration with the Mexican Museum, CLAS is hosting an exhibition of 15 Mexican masks from the 19th and 20th centuries. In this collection, we see representations of pre-Columbian American concepts, as well as Spanish Baroque realism. Together, these masks communicate that the human being is diverse behind a wooden face.
