Physics 298
Speaker: Manuel Houzet (Université Grenoble Alpes and CEA)
Experimentally, the concentration of quasi-particles in gapped superconductors always largely exceeds the equilibrium one at low temperatures. Since these quasiparticles are detrimental for many applications, it is important to understand the origin of the excess. We demonstrate that the dynamics... Read More »

Teer 106
Speaker: Partick Charbonneau
The Research Triangle MRSEC presents its annual outreach event titled "The Material Science of Food and Drink". Keynote speaker will be Patrick Charbonneau, Associate Professor of Chemistry, Duke University on "The Chemistry and Physics of Cooking". There will also be 5+ hands on scientific demos...

Physics 278
Speaker: Simonetta Liuti, University of Virginia
I will discuss the impact of recent developments in hadron phenomenology on extracting possible fundamental tensor and scalar interactions beyond the standard model. A novel class of observables from electron scattering processes in the Multi-GeV region, including the chiral-odd generalized parton... Read More »

Physics 298
Speaker: Simonetta Liuti (University of Virginia)
Wandzura Wilczek relations between matrix-elements of bilocal operators on thelight cone allow us to access the color forces among quarks and gluonsfrom off-forward scattering processes. I will present an analysis of the partontransverse momentum, $k_T$, substructure of these processesinvolving... Read More »
Friday, March 30, 2018 - 12:00pm
Teer 203
Speaker: Shuran Song, PhD candidate in Computer Science at Princeton University
Intelligent robots require advanced vision capabilities to perceive and interact with the real physical world. While computer vision has made great strides in recent years, its predominant paradigm still focuses on analyzing image pixels to infer 2D output representations (bounding boxes,... Read More »

Physics 298
Speaker: Gordon Cates (University of Virginia)
"Neutron structure studies at medium and low energies using polarization degrees of freedom" - The use of polarization degrees of freedom have played a key role in better understanding the structure of the nucleon. Examples include spin-structure studies using polarized deep inelastic scattering as... Read More »
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - 4:30pm
Physics 128
Speaker: Abbas Ourmazd (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee)
"Structure and Dynamics from Random Observations" - Don't be a control freak. At weddings, the bridal photo is taken under bright lights, with the happy couple holding still. Traditionally in science, the "best" observations are those with the largest signal from the most tightly controlled system... Read More »
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - 3:30pm
Raleigh, NC
Speaker: Carlos Sa De Melo (Georgia Tech)
I describe the emergence of color superfluid phases for systems of ultra-cold atoms with artificial color-orbit and color-flip fields for three-component (Red-Green-Blue) Fermi systems. For fermions interacting only in the s-wave channel, I describe the phase diagrams of color-flip fields versus... Read More »
Monday, March 26, 2018 - 12:00pm
Speaker: Antoine Kaufmann
TCP is widely used for client-server communication in modern data centers. But TCP packet handling is notoriously CPU intensive, accounting for an increasing fraction of data center processing time. Techniques such as TCP segment offload, kernel bypass, and RDMA are of limited benefit for the... Read More »
Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 12:00pm
Speaker: Aylin Caliskan
Following the progress in computing and machine learning algorithms as well as the emergence of big data, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a reality impacting every fabric of our algorithmic society. Despite the explosive growth of machine learning, the common misconception that machines... Read More »
