Physics 128
Speaker: Stewart Prager (Princeton Plasma Physics Lab)
"The Path to Magnetic Fusion Energy" When the possibility of fusion as an energy source for electricity generation was realized in the 1950s, understanding of the plasma state was primitive. The fusion goal has been paced by, and has stimulated, the development of plasma physics. Our understanding... Read More »

Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
Neutron scattering, neutron diffraction, and neutron imaging provide information that is highly complementary to that from other microscopic scattering techniques, and more recent technical developments have fueled the expansion of the field, originally focused on condensed matter physics, into...

Raleigh N.C.
Speaker: Ping Wang (IHEP Beijing)
I will present some applications of effective field theory in hadron structure and spectrum. Finite range regularization will be discussed in the extrapolation of lattice data on magnetic form factors, strange form factors, charge radii, first moments, etc. The unitary chiral perturbation theory is...

Physics 128
Speaker: M. Cristina Marchetti (Syracuse Biomaterials Institute)
"Self-Organization and Mechanics of Active Matter" Bird flocks, bacterial suspensions, and colloids propelled by self-catalytic reactions are examples of active matter collectives of individually driven, dissipative units with fascinating emergent behavior at large scales. Active systems self-... Read More »

Gross Hall 330
Speaker: Yuqi Wua, Dept of Applied Mathematics, University of Washington
Abstract In this work, we develop a class of parallel domain decomposition method for simulating blood flow in three-dimensional compliant arteries. We model the fluid-structure interaction problem by using a monolithically coupled system of linear elasticity equation and incompressible Navier-... Read More »
