FRIDAYS - AUG 25 through DEC 1. CHECK THE SCHEDULE FOR SPEAKERS. Bay Area Leaders discuss topics in sustainability.
This series challenges the notion that science and politics should not mix. Building on the March for Science and the People's Climate March, we'll discuss how research in the public interest can make an impact in a political environment dominated by corporate interests, from the major parties to the media.
Weekly discussions will focus on case studies of activist scientists, political... More >

Alex Postnikov, MIT
The abelian sandpile model (also known as the chip firing game) is a simple dynamical system with surprisingly rich and nontrivial structure. We discuss a version of this game for root systems, which has even more mysterious structure than the classical chip firing. This study is closely linked with combinatorics of convex (and nonconvex) polytopes, such as permutohedra, and affine Coxeter... More >
