Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Student Seminar: Propagation of singularities for gravity-capillary waves
Seminar | December 3 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall
Hui Zhu, MSRI
The surface tension makes free surfaces of fluids instantaneously smooth. For 2D gravity-capillary waves, this phenomenon has been justified by Christianson–Hur–Staffilani and Alazard–Burq–Zuily as local smoothing effects. In this talk, I will present a microlocal justification of this phenomenon for gravity-capillary waves in arbitrary dimensions. My main results are two propagation... More >

Harold S. Johnston Lecture: Atmospheric chemistry of volatile organic compounds in the limit as tropospheric NOx approaches pre-industrial concentrations
Seminar | December 3 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
As a result of controls on NOx emissions from cars, trucks, and electricity production, NOx levels (sum on NO and NO2) have decreased rapidly across North America over the past decades.

The gas phase chemistry in the low NO regime has... More >
