Simulating Black Hole Dynamics with Superconducting Quantum Processors: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Irfan Siddiqi, UC Berkeley, Physics
The zoom session will be here: Tremendous progress has been made over the past decade in quantum coherent devices based on superconducting tunneling junctions and resonators, resulting in the development of nascent quantum processors of order 10-100 qubits of varying connectivity. Such devices, though not resilient to arbitrary errors, can nonetheless be...

Dissertation Talk: Integrated Hybrid Switched-Capacitor Converters for PoL Delivery

  • Pourya Assem
Datacenter and telecommunication applications place stringent requirements on the efficiency and power density of step-down dc-dc converters. High efficiency yields lower operating costs and less challenging thermal management, while high power density frees up valuable real estate for computing and communication components. Recently, hybrid switched-capacitor (SC) converters have demonstrated...

Critical One-dimensional Multi-particle DLA

Zoom link: Evans Hall
  • Danny Nam, Princeton University
In multi-particle Diffusion Limited Aggregation (DLA) a sea of particles performs independent random walks until they run into the aggregate and are absorbed. In dimension 1, the rate of growth of the aggregate depends on λ, the density of the particles. Kesten and Sidoravicius proved that when λ1 (subsequently confirmed by Sly) and t^{2/3} growth at the critical density λ=1. We...

Jane Street: virtual ESTIMATHON

Via Zoom
Register as an individual ( by October 27th @5pm ET. The Estimathon! is a mind bending mixture of math and trivia. In teams, you'll attempt 13 Fermi problems in 30 minutes, ranging from totally trivial to positively Putnamesque. Be prepared to come up with the best set of confidence intervals! Sample problems include: How many stop signs are in New...

Mechanical Exfoliation as a Route to Nanomanufacturing of 2D van der Waals Bonded Heterostructures: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Daryl Chrzan, UC Berkeley, MSE
• The zoom link for this meeting is: • Graphene was first isolated by Novoselov, Geim et al in 2004. Since that time, we have learned much about the fundamental properties and potential technological applications of 2D materials - materials that consist of a single layer of atoms. Interestingly, the initial experiments on graphene isolated the material...

CCB Seminar: Deep Representations for Learning for Problems in Biology

Zoom Seminar
  • Dr. Smita Krishnaswamy, Assistant Professor, School of Medicine, Yale
Abstract: High throughput, high dimensional data is now ubiquitous in biomedical science, bolstered by advances in measurement technologies such as single cell RNA-sequencing, single cell ATAC-sequencing. Such data can give us an unprecedented view into cellular systems and patient response. However, current approaches are unable to derive maximal predictive insight from this data, as many...
