Speaker: Alexander D'amour, UC Berkeley
In the 2013-2014 season, the National Basketball League, in conjunction with STATS LLC, implemented a league-wide program to collect player-tracking data for all NBA games. The data feed now provides 25-FPS records of all players' XY coordinates on the court, as well as XYZ coordinates for the ball. This data source has opened up new lines in inquiry into the quantitative analysis of basketball... More >

Catalysts that provide new reactivity and stereocontrol in efficient bond-forming reactions, are essential tools for converting low cost starting materials into high value, structurally complex, stereochemically defined product materials. In this presentation, new families of metal-free and metal-rich cooperative catalysts and their use in highly enantioselective C-C bond forming reactions and... More >

Student Harmonic Analysis and PDE Seminar (HADES): Algebraic structure underlying Kakeya-type problems
Seminar | October 10 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Marina Iliopoulou, UC Berkeley
Kakeya-type questions ask how much tubes that point to different directions overlap. Such problems are central in harmonic analysis, due to their connection with restriction theory, geometric measure theory, PDE and number theory. Over the years there was some indication that Kakeya-type problems have an underlying algebraic structure, but it was only a decade ago that a tool was introduced in... More >
Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: Serre Condition \(S_r\) for Simplicial Complexes
Seminar | October 10 | 3:45-4:45 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall
Brent Holmes, University of Kansas
For a fixed integer \(r\), Serre's condition \(S_r\) is a condition on the depth of a ring at various localizations. It can be viewed as a weakening of the Cohen-Macaulay condition. In this talk, we focus on Serre's condition for Stanley-Reisner rings. The first main topic will be the relationship between Serre's \(S_2\) condition and Hirsch type bounds on the diameter of the dual graph. The... More >

Nanometer-sized thin films of small organic molecules are widely used in applications ranging from organic photovoltaics and organic light emitting diodes, to protective coatings and high resolution nano-imprint lithography. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is widely used in manufacturing ultra-thin layers of amorphous organic solids, with an underlying assumption that the properties of these... More >

Dean of Berkeley Law, Erwin Chemerinsky
In honor of Constitution Day, the Free Speech Movement Educational Programs Committee welcomes the Dean of Berkeley Law, Erwin Chemerinsky. In his new book, "Free Speech on Campus", written with Howard Gillman, they argue that campuses must provide supportive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body but at the same time must never restrict the expression of ideas.
The Library attempts to offer programs in accessible, barrier-free settings. If you think you may require disability-related accommodations, please contact the event sponsor, firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally at least two weeks prior to the event.
