Kyle Miller, UC Berkeley
Knots and spatial graphs can be represented as diagrams, which are planar graphs with special $4$-valent vertices for the crossings. Kauffman proposed considering diagrams on non-planar surfaces as well, and the corresponding objects are called virtual knots and virtual spatial graphs. In this talk, I will describe the Brauer category (a Tempereley-Lieb-like category for diagrams on surfaces), an... More >

In this spring 2018 class, we shall take up the nature of public speech from Socrates' public dissent to social media messaging today. The course reading will combine classic philosophical statements about the value of free, subversive and offensive speech; histories of the emergence of public spheres; and sociologies of technologically-mediated speech today.

David Chandler Seminar in Physical Chemistry: Dissecting direct and indirect intermolecular forces in simple and polar liquids
Seminar | April 17 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
A characteristic feature of David Chandler's research was his ability to extend simple physical pictures and theoretical constructs in surprising new directions, often challenging conventional wisdom in the field. Here I mention three examples, all dealing with the interplay between strong short ranged intermolecular forces and more slowly varying long ranged van der Waals or Coulomb forces in... More >
