Seminar 217, Risk Management: The Tax-Loss Harvesting Life Cycle: A 43-Year Retrospective of Equity Indexing Strategies for Taxable Investors
Seminar | January 17 | 11 a.m.-1 p.m. | 639 Evans Hall
Speaker: Lisa Goldberg (joint with Pete Hand & Alan Cummings), UC Berkeley & Aperio Group
Tax-loss harvesting aims to realize losses on individual stocks in conjunction with an investment objective such as index tracking. In this talk, we give a historical appraisal of the value of tax-loss harvesting to taxable investors with realized gains in their portfolios.

Marine natural products often have complex structures and potent biological activities; however, little is understood regarding how their molecular structure correlates with function or what biological targets or pathways are involved. Through rapid and efficient chemical syntheses of bioactive marine natural products we are able prepare ample quantities of material to explore both... More >

Student Harmonic Analysis and PDE Seminar (HADES): The lifespan of small data solutions for Benjamin-Ono
Seminar | January 17 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall
Mihaela Ifrim, UCB
This article represents a first step toward understanding the long time dynamics of solutions for the Benjamin-Ono equation. While this problem is known to be both completely integrable and globally well-posed in $L^2$, much less seems to be known concerning its long time dynamics. Here we prove that for small localized data the solutions have (nearly) dispersive dynamics almost globally in time.... More >
