Workshop | August 23 | 10-10:30 a.m. | Valley Life Sciences Building, Bioscience Library Training Room
Lisa Ngo, UC Berkeley Library
Mendeley. Zotero. EndNote. RefWorks. LaTeX. There are a lot of tools out there to help you organize your literature and create and manage citations and bibliographies, but which one is right for you? Join us for this introduction to citation management tools where we'll provide an overview of the options and offer a demonstration of how they can make the writing process easier.
Berkeley-Tokyo Summer School "Geometry, Representation Theory, and Mathematical Physics": Spaces of stability conditions on the Calabi-Yau categories associated with quivers I
Seminar | August 23 | 10-11:30 a.m. | 375 LeConte Hall
Akishi Ikeda, UC Tokyo
The aim of this lecture is to introduce the spaces of Bridgeland stability conditions on the Calabi-Yau categories associated with quivers. In the first part, we introduce the space of Bridgeland stability conditions on a triangulated category and review its basic properties. We also see examples of stability conditions. In the second part, we see known results about the spaces of stability... More >

Andrew Fox, Assistant Professor, UC Davis
An extremely anxious temperament early in life is a risk factor for the later development of anxiety, depressive, and substance abuse disorders. Children with an extremely anxious temperament (AT), react to novelty with increased behavioral inhibition and increased levels of physiological arousal. Using a well-validated non-human primate model of AT, our group has been investigating the... More >

Getting Started in Undergraduate Research
If you are thinking about getting involved in undergraduate research, this workshop is a great place to start! You will get a broad overview of the research opportunities available to undergraduates on campus, and suggestions on how to find them.
We will also let you know about upcoming deadlines and eligibility requirements for some of... More >

On a locally finite graph, consider the following interacting particle system, known as Activated Random Walk (ARW). Start with a mass density µ of initially active particles, each of which performs a continuous time nearest neighbour symmetric random walk at rate one and falls asleep at rate λ > 0. Sleepy particles become active on coming in contact with active particles... More >
Berkeley-Tokyo Summer School "Geometry, Representation Theory, and Mathematical Physics": Fukaya cosheaves
Seminar | August 23 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 375 LeConte Hall
Vivek Shende, Berkeley
Kontsevich conjectured that the wrapped Fukaya category of a Weinstein manifold should be computable as the global sections of some cosheaf of categories over its Lagrangian skeleton. I will describe how to make this precise, and how to prove it. This is joint work with Sheel Ganatra and John Pardon.
