Synthetic polymers are significant importance in all aspects of modern life, and during the last few decades, these materials have facilitated major societal advances. Innovative polymeric materials have the potential to address humankinds next grand scientific and technological challenges; however, taking advantage of the opportunities presented by these materials requires new methods for...

Speaker: Martin Lettau, UC Berkeley
ABSTRACT: This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of portfolios of active mutual funds, ETFs and hedge funds through the lens of risk (anomaly) factors. We show that that these funds do not systematically tilt their portfolios towards profitable factors, such as high book-to-market (BM) ratios, high momentum, small size, high profitability and low investment growth. Strikingly, there are... More >

Seminar 281 International Trade and Finance: A Theory of Falling Growth and Rising Rents: Joint with Macroeconomics
Seminar | September 17 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 597 Evans Hall | Note change in time
Growth has fallen in the U.S., while firm concentration and profits have risen. Meanwhile, labors share of national income is down, mostly
due to the rising market share of low labor share firms. We propose a
theory for these trends in which the driving force is falling firm-level costs of spanning multiple markets, perhaps due to accelerating IT advances. In response, the most efficient firms... More >

Alix Deleporte, UC Berkeley
Szegö kernels encode information on weighted holomorphic functions, or holomorphic sections. In an appropriate large curvature limit, they enjoy a semiclassical structure. Among other applications, these kernels are used to define an alternative quantization scheme : Berezin-Toeplitz quantization. This talk will be an opportunity to further motivate attendance to M. Zworski's course.
Seminar | September 17 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Recent advances in super-resolution fluorescence microscopy have led to ~10 nm spatial resolution and exciting new biology. We are developing new approaches to advance beyond the structural (shape) information offered by existing super-resolution methods, and reveal multidimensional information of intracellular functional parameters, including chemical polarity, diffusivity, and reactivity, with...

Colloquium | September 17 | 4-6 p.m. | 223 Moses Hall
Sam Dubal, Berkeley Center for Social Medicine
This talk is not about crimes against humanity. Rather, it is an indictment of humanity, the concept that lies at the heart of human rights and humanitarian missions. Based on fieldwork in northern Uganda, I examine how 'humanity' conceptualizes the LRA as a set of problems rather than a set of possibilities, as inhuman enemies needing reform.
