Astronomy Seminar: Detection and Characterization of M-dwarf Planets with Next Generation Instruments

Guðmundur Kári Stefánsson (Princeton)
-

Abstract: Planets orbiting nearby M-dwarfs—the most numerous stars in the galaxy and our nearest stellar neighbors—are advantageous for detailed characterization. The…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Boolean Networks: discrete dynamical models of high-dimensional nonlinear systems"

Jordan Rozum (Pennsylvania State University)
- See Zoom link below

Boolean networks are a common modeling tool for studying the phenotypic changes that cells undergo in response stimuli. Examples include cell differentiation during embryogenesis, metastasis of…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Anomalies and Emergent Symmetries on the Lattice and in the Continuum

Shu-Heng Shao (IAS)
-

We consider various standard and exotic lattice models, and deform them using an approach generalizing the Villain formulation. The new lattice models exhibit many properties that were thought to be…

Discipline-based education research has made great strides in understanding how to foster more equitable and effective teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, there still has…



Astronomy Seminar: The First Flight of SPIDER: A view to the dawn of time from above the clouds

Jeffrey Filippini (University of Illinois)
-

Inflation is thought to have seeded the cosmos with a hum of primordial gravitational waves - unique messengers from the universe's earliest moments. If present, these should have left a unique "B-…

High Energy Theory Seminar: Illuminating the Early Universe with Dark Matter Minihalos

Adrienne Erickcek (UNC)
-

As remnants of the earliest stages of structure formation, the smallest dark matter halos provide a unique probe of the evolution of the Universe prior to the onset of Big Bang nucleosynthesis (BBN…
