Wilson loops are important observables in gauge theory. In this talk, we study half-BPS Wilson loops of a large class of five dimensional supersymmetric quiver gauge theories with 8 supercharges, in a nontrivial instanton background. The Wilson loops are codimension 4 defects of the quiver gauge theory, and their interaction with self-dual instantons is captured by a 1d ADHM quantum mechanics. We... More >

Silicon photonics is a rapidly maturing platform for optical communication and sensing. As systems leveraging silicon photonics have grown in size and complexity, so too has the demand for high performance silicon photonics components. In order to meet these demands, we propose a hierarchical approach to design and optimization of silicon photonics components. Our approach applies simple physical... More >

Abstract: Machine Learning and numerical simulation represent two distinct approaches to researchers and engineers wanting to predict and understand the behavior of complex systems. Machine Learning trusts entirely in the data to hold the key and numerical simulation relies solely on the fundamental laws of nature. While each approach has been wildly successful in solving problems in science and... More >
