Raleigh, NC
Speaker: Duff Neil (Los Alamos National Lab)
Scattering in QCD presents a conundrum: at the hard scattering region,we can have unitary quantum mechanical evolution of a pure state.However, the distribution of radiation observed in the final stateoften obeys a semi-classical probability distribution. Typically, suchcollapse of unitary... Read More »

Teer 203
Speaker: Monica Olvera de la Cruz: Northwestern University
The accessibility of reactants to the surface of enzymes is crucial for its function. Therefore, in order to exploit the enzymatic properties of proteins in non-biological environments, it is imperative to organize proteins in assemblies that expose their surfaces to the reactants. I will describe... Read More »

Raleigh, NC
Speaker: Abha Rajan
Imaging takes on a new meaning as we get down to taking pictures of the proton at the femto scale. With the advent of Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) not only are we able to resolve the partonic momentum distributions of the proton, but are able to map out their spatial distribution as well...

Physics 130
Speaker: Nigel Goldenfeld (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
"Stochastic Turing Patterns in the Biosphere: From Brains to Biofilms"Why are the patterns of plankton in the ocean so patchy? Why do frequently described geometrical hallucinations tend to fall into one of four different classes of pattern? Why don't we see hallucinations all the time? And why do... Read More »
