Our group is particularly inspired by natural products not only because of their importance as synthetic targets but also due to their ability to serve as invaluable identifiers of unanswered chemical, medicinal, biological, and biophysical questions. One major focus of our research has been the selective halogenation of alkenes. Dihalogenation and halofunctionalization encompass some of the most... More >

Autoionizing (or electron-detaching) states are ubiquitous in physics, chemistry, biology, and technology. Such meta-stable states (called resonances) play a central role in processes as diverse as DNA radiolysis, plasmonic catalysis, and attosecond spectroscopy. Resonances belong to the continuum spectrum, which makes their theoretical description exceptionally difficult, because their wave... More >

Seminar | September 26 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library
Michael I. Jordan, Professor, Statistics & EECS, UC Berkeley
The rapid growth in the size and scope of datasets in science and technology has created a need for novel foundational perspectives on data analysis that blend the inferential and computational sciences. That classical perspectives from these fields are not adequate to address emerging problems in Data Science is apparent from their sharply divergent nature at an elementary level---in computer...

We give a description of certain products of minors of a generic matrix as pairs of standard Young tableaux. Under this description, the pairs of standard Young tableaux form a free basis of the polynomial ring whose variables are generic entries of that matrix. We also characterize the nth symbolic power of a determinantal ideal in terms of these pairs of standard Young tableaux, and use this to... More >
