Applied Math Seminar: Prediction of random and chaotic dynamics in nonlinear optics

Seminar | January 15 | 4-5 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall | Note change in location

 Amir Sagiv, Columbia University

 Department of Mathematics

The prediction of interactions between nonlinear laser beams is a longstanding open problem. A traditional assumption is that these interactions are deterministic. We have shown, however, that in the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) model of laser propagation, beams lose their initial phase information in the presence of input noise. Thus, the interactions between beams become unpredictable...   More >

 Angelo Mao, Wyss Technology Fellow and postdoctoral associate at the Wyss Institute at Harvard Medical School

 Bioengineering (BioE)

Tunable biomaterials underlie numerous approaches for therapy, diagnostics, and basic biological research. Developing methods to shape materials with appropriate properties is needed for successful deployment of material-based strategies. In this seminar, I will highlight concepts for engineering material properties that leverage microfluidic technologies and synthetic biology, respectively. I...   More >

Why is that there? Feature tuning across the visual cortex

Seminar | January 16 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | Berkeley Way West, 2121 Berkeley Way, Room 1203

 Talia Konkle, Harvard University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

What drives the functional organization of the visual system? All proposals balance the causal roles of two pressures: innately specified cortical patterning mechanisms, establishing large-scale network architecture, and self-organizing mechanisms driven by the statistics of natural experience, effecting local organization. In part 1, I will characterize the functional organization of...   More >
