Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Microassembler Printer

Seminar | October 12 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Hogan Room

 Eugene Chow, PARC

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

We are developing a process to assemble and orient micro-objects, and then transfer them to a final substrate to be used for electronics, sensors, metamaterials and other applications. The process uses directed electrostatic assembly to enable micrometer scale registration and parallel assembly with open and closed loop control. We transfer the assemblies to final substrates with parallel or roll...   More >

Student Probability/PDE Seminar: Some Non-Uniqueness Results for PDEs from Hamiltonian Systems

Seminar | October 12 | 2:10-3:30 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Stamatis Dostoglou, University of Missouri

 Department of Mathematics

We shall first recall how to obtain macroscopic PDEs by taking limits of Hamiltonian dynamics as the number of molecules increases to infinity. We shall then construct along these lines explicit examples of spontaneous energy generation (and therefore establish non-uniqueness) for the compressible Euler system, with and without pressure. The examples come from rescalings of well-posed...   More >

MENA Salon: Yemen's Continuing War

Workshop | October 12 | 3-4 p.m. | 340 Stephens Hall

 Center for Middle Eastern Studies

Two weeks ago, the UN Human Rights Council, overriding the objections of Saudi Arabia and its allies, voted to continue an investigation by a panel of international experts into the war in Yemen. This comes in the wake of a recent cholera outbreak, with roughly 10,000 new cases each week, and increasing civilian casualties. The humanitarian crisis in Yemen has been aided by the United States'...   More >

Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren't So Sure

Colloquium | October 12 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium

 Irene Bloemraad, Sociology

 Canadian Studies Program (CAN))

Americans are deeply divided about migration policy and have limited appetite for increasing immigration. In contrast, Canada’s government has increased its immigration targets; the ruling party won in part due to a campaign promise to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees; and citizens largely support these policies. Why do Canadians seem to love immigration while Americans aren’t so...   More >

Logic Colloquium: Combinatorial principles from proof complexity

Colloquium | October 12 | 4-5 p.m. | 60 Evans Hall

 Pavel Pudlak, Czech Academy of Sciences

 Department of Mathematics

One of the goals of proof theory is to find combinatorial characterization of sentences provable in particular theories, i.e., to present these sentences as mathematical principles, rather than mere syntactical statements. While for strong theories these sentences tend to be incomprehensible, for weak theories we expect to find something familiar, or at least similar to well-known principles. In...   More >

Bergman Seminar in Inorganic Chemistry: High-Valent Chromium with Multiple Bonds to Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Carbon

Seminar | October 12 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Klaus Theopold, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, University of Delaware

 College of Chemistry

Our longstanding interest in the coordination chemistry of chromium has recently taken a turn to the highest formal oxidation states of that metal.
One thread of that story is the ‘peractivation’ - aka oxidative addition - of the small molecules O2 and N2. We are interested in the mechanisms of these reactions and the origins of their activation barriers. For example, does spin state play a...   More >
