Sulfur is an essential element for life and is found in all living systems. Yet, how the sulfur is incorporated in many sulfur-containing secondary metabolites remains poorly understood. Albomycin δ2 is an unusual naturally occurring nucleoside that possesses a sulfur-containing furanose, which is essential for its potent antibiotic activity against clinically important pathogens. The...   More >

Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Student Seminar: Geodesic stretch, pressure metric and the marked length spectrum rigidity conjecture

Seminar | November 12 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Thibault Lefebvre, Paris 11

 Department of Mathematics

In 1985, Burns and Katok conjectured that the marked length spectrum of a negatively-curved Riemannian manifold (namely the collection of lengths of closed geodesics marked by the free homotopy of the manifold) should determine the metric up to isometries. This conjecture was independently proved for surfaces in 1990 by Croke and Otal but since then little progress has been accomplished in higher...   More >

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Machine Learning is invaluable for extracting insights from large volumes of data. A key assumption enabling many methods, however, is having access to training data comprising independent observations from the entire distribution of relevant data. In practice, data is commonly missing due to measurement limitations, legal restrictions, or data collection and sharing practices. Moreover,...   More >

Imaging, Understanding and Controlling of Nanoscale Materials Transformations

Seminar | November 12 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Haimei Zheng, Materials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

 College of Chemistry

Nanoscale materials often change structure and morphology during growth, self-assembly, and use as they interact with the environment, especially in solution processes. An understanding of their responses to an external stimulus at the atomic/molecular level may allow us to control their transformations, providing a rational pathway for the design of novel materials. For this purpose, we have...   More >

After Obamageddon: Reflections on the Rise of Right-Wing 'Doomsday' Prepping in 21st Century America
