Seminar | May 1 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Jin-Quan Yu, The Scripps Research Institute

 College of Chemistry

The vast majority of directed C–H activation reactions proceed via cyclometallation, in which a strongly coordinating functional group binds to the metal and facilitates cleavage of a proximate C–H bond. These substrates driven reactions become problematic background reactions for developing enantioselective C–H activation reactions. The use of weak coordination from substrates to direct metal...   More >

The Brill-Noether theorem establishes a fundamental link between the classical notion of a curve in projective space, given as the zero locus of polynomials, and the (relatively) modern notion of an abstract curve. Specifically, it tell us when and how a general abstract curve can be embedded in $\mathbf{P^r}$.

Russia’s grand strategy has changed significantly in the post-Soviet period, but IR theory cannot fully account for this variation. This research synthesizes insights from the realist and constructivist traditions to explain how domestic discourses of state identity, role, and power mediate anarchical systemic pressures to shape strategic adjustment. These discourses comprise what I call “the...   More >

Earlier this year I made the first improvement since 1950 to the bounds of the Hadwiger-Nelson problem, which is to determine the chromatic number of the plane (CNP); the lower bound was previously 4, since there are 4-chromatic unit-distance (UD) graphs in the plane. The improvement to CNP ≥ 5 was achieved by identifying, though not actually defining precisely, a numerical function of UD...   More >
