 John Shalf, Department Head for Computer Science, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

The talk will walk through one of the broadest studies to date of high-end application communication requirements, whose computational methods include: finite-difference, lattice-Boltzmann, particle-in-cell, sparse linear algebra, particle mesh ewald, FFT-based solvers, and numerous commercial workloads from FaceBook and Google.

Transport Properties of Complex Nanosystems: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | September 27 | 2-3 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Dr. Jeffrey J. Urban, LBNL Molecular Foundry

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Heat, charge, and mass are fundamental energy carrying modes relevant to nearly all dynamic properties of interest in engineering, physics, and modern energy technologies. Here, I will discuss the design and understanding of transport properties in complex nanoscale systems where the dimensional constraints are changed systematically to reveal fundamental principles of transport. The first part...   More >

Student Probability/PDE Seminar: KPZ Fixed Point

Seminar | September 27 | 2:10-3:30 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Fraydoun Rezakhanlou, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

KPZ equation is a stochastic PDE that is used to study the fluctuations of a stochastic height function. After a suitable scaling, the solutions to KPZ equation are expected to converge to the solutions of the so-called KPZ Fixed Point. In this talk, I give an overview of the existing results on KPZ Fixed Point.

Earl L. Muetterties Lecture: Development of New Catalytic Reactions toward Utilization of Renewable Resources

Seminar | September 27 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall | Canceled

 Kyoko Nozaki, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, The University of Tokyo

 College of Chemistry

Carbon dioxide is one of the most attractive renewable C1 resources, which has many practical advantages such as abundance, economic efficiency, and lack of toxicity. The favorable nature as a carbon source is, however, inextricably linked to its inherent inertness. Here we report a new strategy to circumvent thermodynamic and kinetic barriers for copolymerizations of carbon dioxide and olefins...   More >
