Replica Symmetry Breaking for Random Regular NAESAT
Ideas from physics have predicted a number of important properties of random constraint satisfaction problems such as the satisfiability threshold and the free energy (the exponential growth rate of the number of solutions). Another prediction is the condensation regime where most of the solutions are contained in a small number of clusters... More >

Controlling the exact atomic structure is an ultimate form of materials engineering. Atomic manipulation and atom-by-atom assembly can create functional structures that are hard to synthesize chemically. Defects at the one- or few-atom-scale have intriguing properties that can be applied to fields like quantum engineering (e.g. nitrogen vacancy center, single photon emitter, etc. ), and... More >

For some planar stochastic growth models such as Hammersely-Aldous-Diaconis and Exclusion Processes, multiline and multiclass processes are studied to explore the monotonicity of the underlying growth mechanism. In this talk I compare these two processes, and give an overview of some recent results about them.

Over the past year Iâve been doing a good deal of thinking about the broad way weâve framed the work of research data management and preservation, and the roles of various parties (researchers, data curators, repositories, etc.) in this effort. The dominant model to date has been one of describing datasets, archiving them into repositories, and assuming that they will be discovered and reused... More >

How did the recent revolution in the science of halide perovskites begin? The chemical versatility and structure diversity in the class of hybrid organic inorganic main metal halides is astounding. The interplay of weak covalent and ionic bonding in the inorganic framework allows the formation of an amazingly broad variety of structures most of which can be divided into two larger classes:...

In 2016, Tao introduced the slice rank polynomial method as a reformulation of a technique that first appeared in work of Croot, Lev and Pach, and was the basis of a breakthrough of Ellenberg and Gijswijt on the upper bound for the famous cap-set problem. The cap-set problem asks about the maximum size of a subset of F_p^n not containing a three-term arithmetic progression. The slice rank... More >
