           10:00 - 12:00     Short Course
Model Theory, p-adic Integration, and Applications to Algebra and Number Theory

School
MATHEMATICS

This course is concerned with model-theoretic results for local fields and finite fields, and p-adic and motivic integration. The main results concern analytic properties of Euler products and applications to various zeta functions and Dirichlet series in algebra and number theory. ...

Born-Oppenheimer Dynamics, Electronic Friction, and the Inclusion of Electron-Electron Interactions

We present a universal expression for the electronic friction as felt by a set of classical nuclear degrees of freedom (DOFs) coupled to a manifold of quantum electronic DOFs; no assumptions are made regarding the nature of the electronic Hamiltonian and electron-electron repulsions are allowed. Our derivation is based on a quantum-classical Liouville equation for the coupled electronic-nuclear motion, followed by an adiabatic approximation whereby electronic transitions are assumed to equilibrate faster than nuclear movement. ...

Separate Universe approach and soft modes in cosmological perturbation theory

School
ASTRONOMY

Understanding most interesting things in the universe from fluctuations on CMB, large scales structures to galaxies and stars needs studying universe beyond homogeneous and isotropic limit. This study is the subject of the so-called "cosmological perturbation theory". In this talk, I will start off by a brief review of the cosmological perturbation theory. Afterwards, I will turn to separate universe approach to the evolution of long wave length limit of these perturbations. Then I will make a detour to Weinberg theorem of the adiabatic modes. Finally, I will briefly present our heuristic approach to study soft gravitational perturbations in ...

Membrane Remodeling in Cellular Organelles

School
NANO SCIENCES

Membrane Remodeling in Cellular Organelles

Membrane remodeling plays a crucial role in the formation and function of
organelles. Prime expamples are the extensive network of tubular
structures in the ER and the unusual cup-shaped membranes in autophagy. We
investigate the membrane shape remodeling processes establishing and
maintaining these structures by using a membrane elastic model combined
with explicitly modeled proteins.
Our simulations indicate that control of the area-to-volume ratio is a key
factor in driving biological membrane shape transitions to form tubular ER

On Curtis Conjecture on Spherical Classes in H_*QS^0

School
MATHEMATICS

The problem of determining spherical classes in homology of spaces seems to be an elementary problem that one can stated once the Hurewicz map is defined. However, in some cases of interest such as the infinite loop space associated to the sphere spectrum, the answer still is unknown. In this talk, I will start with an introduction to spherical classes and their basic properties, and then state some recent developments in this direction which are obtained by geometric methods. ...

An Introduction to Ion Sources and Simulation of the ECR Ion Source

School
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

The first stage of many particle accelerators is an ion source, responsible for producing the charged particles and pre-accelerating them to form an ion beam. Ion sources have many applications, not just in the field of scientific studies, but also for medical applications, material processing and surface treatments. In this talk I will explain the physical mechanisms involved in some famous types of ion sources used in accelerator machines. I will also review my past experiences on the research and development of the DC and RF ion sources used in high vacuum coating systems. Finally, I will present preliminary results of the simulation of th ...
