Self-Organization of Nanoparticles: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | September 1 | 2-3 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall | Note change in location

 Prof. Nicholas Kotov, Univ. of Michigan, Chemical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) have the ability to self-organize into a variety of structures. Analysis of experimental data for different types of NPs indicates a general trend of self-assembly under a wider range of conditions and having broader structural variability than self-assembling units from organic matter.

Remarkably, the internal organization of self-assembled NP systems rivals in...   More >

Student Probability/PDE Seminar: Geomety of Polymers in Last Passage Percolation Under Various Constraints

Seminar | September 1 | 2:10-3:30 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Shirshendu Ganguly, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

Motivated by extremal isoperimetric problems in percolation, I shall describe a model which puts a global curvature constraint on the standard Last passage percolation model and studies the longest increasing path from $(0, 0)$ to $(n, n)$ trapping atypically large area. As is typical in these models, the first order behaviour of this random contour is determined by a variational problem which we...   More >

Seminar | September 1 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Samuel Johnson, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, University of Windsor

 College of Chemistry

Nickel complexes are often less adept at the activation and functionalization of unreactive bonds than second and third row transition metals. In contrast, the ability of Ni metal surface sites to readily activate C-H and C-C under ambient conditions has found use in high temperature catalytic reactions that involve skeletal rearrangements of C-H, C-C and C-O bonds. Cooperativity amongst adjacent...   More >

Indelibly sexy, swaggering, animalistic and balancing a sense of real...   More >

An intricately mosaicked portrait of Ram Kumar at home and in the studio, Even Red Can Be Sad is so steeped in the nonagenarian artist’s writings and paintings as to seem a kind of secondhand self-portrait. Working from multiple streams of text and image, Dutta finds an apt muse for his own prismatic style in Kumar’s multidisciplinary talent.
