Integration of cross-coupling, a reaction with unlimited depth and breadth of industrial and academic applications, into three-component and tandem reaction manifolds has the potential to create a methodology of unparalleled synthetic power. These reactions that generate two new carbon-carbon bonds in one synthetic step could find important applications in rapidly building molecular complexity...   More >

Automorphisms of surface groups or free groups are fundamental in low-dimensional topology, and have a close analogy with arithmetic groups like \(GL_n(\mathbb Z)\). A foundational question is whether the analogue of "congruence subgroups" are finitely generated. For the first level, this was proved by Dehn (1938); for the second level, it was proved by Johnson (1983). McCullough-Miller...   More >
