Aufklärungstheater: Lessings Dramen und Hamburgische Dramaturgie
Gotthold Ephraim Lessings Schauspiel Nathan der Weise (1779) gilt als das deutschsprachige Drama der Aufklärung schlechthin. Und dies nicht nur, weil es bis heute das am häufigsten auf der Bühne inszenierte Stück der Epoche ist, sondern auch, weil es mit seinen szenischen... More >

AEarning widespread notice for his richly colored and superbly crafted scores, Pierre Jalbert (b. 1967) has developed a musical language that is engaging, expressive, and deeply personal. Among his many honors are the Rome Prize, the BBC Masterprize, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center's 2007 Stoeger Award,... More >

Oriented matroids are matroids whose defining subsets are "signed" in some way; a prototypical example is the ordered bases in a set of vectors, together with their orientations. Many familiar objects are oriented matroids, including directed graphs, vector configurations, and hyperplane arrangements. As with matroids, there are many ways of defining an oriented matroid, each stemming from the... More >
Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: 2D material-based layer transfer based on remote epitaxy and uniform epitaxial RAM towards large-scale neuromorphic arrays
Seminar | September 22 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Cory (Hogan Room)
Professor Jeehwan Kim, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
In this talk, I will discuss our recent development in a 2D material-based layer-transfer (2DLT) process based on remote epitaxy. We recently discovered that the epitaxial registry of adatoms during epitaxy can be assigned by the underlying substrate remotely through 2D materials. Our study shows that remote epitaxy can be performed through a single-atom-thick gap defined by monolayer graphene... More >

Aerogels are porous solids used in a wide range of energy and environmental applications including sorbents, filtration, insulation, hydrogen storage, catalysis, batteries, and supercapacitors due to their high internal surface, composition, and small pore/particle size. Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, such as boron nitride and graphene, also exhibit a range of distinct optical, electronic,... More >

On September 25, Iraqi Kurdistan is scheduled to vote on whether or not to become an independent state. In this weeks MENA Salon we will survey views on the Kurdish referendum. We will also reflect on the tension between the right to self-determination and the principle of territorial integrity.
Inexpensive Catalysts for H2 Production and Organic Upgrading: From Water Splitting to Biomass Valorization
Seminar | September 22 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
One of the challenges to realize large-scale H2 production from water electrolysis is the lack of competent and inexpensive electrocatalysts. Our group recently discovered that surface modification of metallic nickel foam with nitrogen resulted in a superior electrocatalyst for H2 evolution under neutral condition, rivaling the performance of the state-of-the-art platinum-based catalysts. In... More >

New mobility services are growing quickly, but are they providing mobility for all travelers? Some studies have used system data from the car2go and Uber APIs to examine the types and quality of trips, while others used intercept surveys to characterize travelers using UberHOP and their reasons for choosing HOP. I will share results from these recent studies.

Given a so called nice graph (no triangles, no squares, for any choice of two distinct vertices there is a third vertex which is connected to one and not the other), Mekler considered the 2-nilpotent subgroup generated by the vertices of the graph in which two elements given by vertices commute if and only if there is an edge between them. These groups form an interesting collection of examples... More >
