Seminars



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Ultrastructural 3D simulations of electrical and calcium dynamics in neurons and networks"

Gillian Queisser (Temple University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Neurons make use of their complex cellular and intracellular architecture to process and guide electrical and biochemical signals. To study this structure-function interplay, computational methods…

Astronomy seminar: "A Modern View of Quasars in the LSST Era"

Gordon Richards (Drexel University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

A modern view of quasars sees them as diverse *processes* as opposed to the traditional view as more static *things*.  Such a picture is …

Past Seminars



Astronomy seminar: "Exploring the Connection between Galaxies and their Supermassive Black Holes"

Vicki Sarajedini (Florida Atlantic University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) are galaxies currently accreting significant amounts of material onto their central super massive black holes and may mark an important phase of galaxy evolution…

Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Quantifying Hidden Order Out of Equilibrium"

Paul Chaikin (New York University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

We introduce a simple idea enabling the quantification of organization in non-equilibrium and equilibrium systems, even when the form of order is unknown: 'It takes less information to describe an ordered…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Bacterial swimming: internal clock and fluid environment"

Nuris Figueroa-Morales (Penn State University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Bacterial suspensions are ubiquitous in naturally occurring and man-made scenarios. Their transport determines how infections spread and microbiota organize in guts or in soils. In addition, bacteria can turn common…
