Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 152
Abstract: An important issue in quantifying uncertainty in the simulation of large-scale dynamical processes is to determine statistical models that appropriately account for their physical characteristics or nonstationarity. In this talk we describe a method to derive covariance... read more

Quantum Dots (QDs) are a fascinating material that bridges the gap between atomistic interactions and bulk properties. Comprised of several hundred to perhaps a few thousand atoms for the very largest of particles, they are the perfect basis for studying quantum effects, such as confinement.... read more
