Physics 298
Speaker: Art Champagne (UNC and Duke Physics)
"Abundance Anomalies in Globular Clusters: Does the Fault Lie in the Stars?" - Globular clusters are the oldest structures to form in the galaxy and thus their ages provide a wealth of information about the evolution of the Milky Way. These ages assume that we understand stellar evolution and the... Read More »

Physics 278
Speaker: Daniel Whiteson, University of California, Irvine
Recent advances in artificial intelligence offer opportunities to disrupt the traditional techniques for data analysis in high energy physics. I will describe the new machine learning techniques, explain why they are particularly well suited for particle physics, and present selected results that... Read More »

Physics 128
Speaker: Nancy M. Haegel (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)
It is well understood and commonly cited that the solar energy resource significantly exceeds the world's total energy consumption. However, despite dramatic advances in deployment and cost reduction, the vision of PV providing a significant fraction of global electricity generation-and ultimately... Read More »

Physics 298
Speaker: Claudia Ratti (University of Houston)
Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the fundamental theory describing the interactions between the ultimate building blocks of matter, namely quarks and gluons. At temperatures as high as trillions of degrees Kelvin and zero net baryon density, first principle Lattice QCD calculations have shown that a... Read More »
