Aaron Luttman - Diagnostic Research and Materials Studies, Nevada National Security Site
Mar 29, 2017 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - TBD
While most people are familiar with many of the military aspects of national security, the scientific enterprise in support of national security is less well known. The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy that oversees the... read more

Aaron Luttman - Diagnostic Research and Materials Studies, Nevada National Security Site
Mar 29, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
While the U.S. Department of Energy has moved to a scientific paradigm driven by modeling and simulation, and in which experimentation is motivated primarily by code validation, there is still much to be learned by analyzing data directly and extracting information from experimental data by solving... read more

Andrey Rogachev - Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Illinois Tech
Mar 29, 2017 - 3:15pm
Chemistry - Colloquia - 111 Robert A. Pritzker Science Center
Recent achievements in experimental and theoretical chemistry of reduced corannulene and sumanene (two smallest prototypic fragments of fullerene, so-called buckybowls) revealed a tendency of highly reduced curved polyaromatic molecules to form sandwich-like aggregates. The latter contain five or... read more

Despina Stasi, Research Professor - Illinois Institute of Technology, Applied Mathematics Department
Apr 3, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
The speaker considers two separate interactions of Probability and Algebra. First the speaker studies Erdos-Renyi-type random monomial ideals and their properties. The speaker will also briefly touch on the application of a well-known randomized algorithm to problems in Computational Algebra.

Axel Hoffmann - Senior Group Leader, Magnetic Films, Materials Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory
Apr 5, 2017 - 3:15pm
Chemistry - Colloquia - 111 Robert A. Pritzker Science Center
The field of spintronics, or magnetic electronics, is maturing and giving rise to new subfields. An important ingredient to the vitality of magnetism research in general is the large complexity due to competitions between interactions crossing many lengthscales and the interplay of magnetic degrees... read more

Jie Li - Argonne National Laboratory
Apr 6, 2017 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Physics - Colloquia - 111 Robert A. Pritzker Science Center
Nanoparticles have many applications due to their outstanding characteristics and performances. However, the large-scale manufacturing of high-quality nanoparticles with controlled geometries and physical properties is a non-trivial task. Recently, it has been discovered that VO2 nanoparticulate... read more

Shidong Jiang - Department of Mathematical Sciences, New Jersey Institute of Technology
Apr 10, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
The speaker will present a second kind integral equation (SKIE) formulation for calculating the electromagnetic modes of optical waveguides, where the unknowns are only on material interfaces. The resulting numerical algorithm can handle optical waveguides with a large number of inclusions of... read more

Alan Grossfield - Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of Rochester
Apr 13, 2017 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Physics - Colloquia - 111 Robert A. Pritzker Science Center
The emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens is one of the major health challenges of the 21st century, igniting significant interest in novel compounds based on antimicrobial peptides; these peptides kill bacteria by attacking and damaging their cell membranes. Despite their initial promise,... read more
