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: Inspiration for Chemical and Biological Discovery

Seminar | January 17 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Joshua Pierce, Department of Chemistry, North Carolina State University

 College of Chemistry

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

 Department of Mathematics

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 >
