  • Miguel Eckstein, UCSB, Linking Neurons to Individual Differences in Perceptual Skill
    humans with normal vision differ greatly in in their ability to make difficult perceptual judgments Furthermore humans show systematic differences in where they direct their eyes when having to make perceptual judgments such as identifying faces What might explain this difference across humans in perceptual performance and eye movement exploration Can one infer an individual Ys perceptual performance from their neural activity And are there brain regions and time periods

  • Charles Bennett, IBM, Quantum Information and the Birth and Death of Complexity
    traditional quantum hallmarks Turbulence is a familiar example of a process generating not only correlations but awe inspiring complexity and it is natural to wonder where this complexity comes from and how long it lasts We discuss the central role of entanglement in the origin and obliteration of correlations then attempt to apply the theory to understand the birth and death of complexity appropriately defined Begin Flash video Or right

  • Victor Yakovenko, Univ. of Maryland, New Developments in Statistical Mechanics of Money, Income, and Wealth
    income distribution in the USA has a well defined two class structure The majority of the population about 97 belongs to the lower class characterized by the exponential thermal distribution The upper class about 3 of the population has a Pareto power law superthermal distribution whose parameters change in time with the rise and fall of financial markets Recent studies such as the role of debt and the distribution of

  • Robijn Bruinsma, UCLA, Physics and Mathematics of Cancer Metastasis
    predict the progression of certain cancers to metastasis A third group of mathematical theories the quasi species models is believed to account for the sensitivity of cancers to radiation More recently physicists have become involved in cancer research developing continuum models to describe the onset of cancer metastasis The talk will review the different physical and mathematical models of cancer metastasis in the context of the controversial Weinberg model for

  • Zohar Nussinov, Wash Univ.-St. Louis, Glassy Dynamics and Unusual Thermodynamics on Curved Surfaces
    preferred structures that due to geometrical constraints cannot tile flat space We will show how this may lead to glassy dynamics and very unusual thermodynamics We will also discuss the inverted problem and illustrate how by removing constraint we may better solve hard NP complete problems Begin Flash video Begin streaming QuickTime Or right click to download the movie Or right click to download the podcast Begin streaming RealMedia high

  • Rajan Gupta, LANL, The Many Faces of the Global Energy Challenge Viewed Through a Global Observatory
    9 billion people in the coming decades This talk will examine the current challenges the technological breakthroughs required and the role of individuals and communities I will then show how state of the art in information science and technology can be used to create a real time global observatory for energy infrastructure consumption and generation By identifying and correlating changes over time in energy production and infrastructure to drivers such

  • Dennis Atterton, J. Kuchera-Morin, L. Putnam, C. Roads, & B. Sturm, Sonal Atoms - Atomic Decomposition/Composition of Sound and, Experiencing the Quantum Realm - Visualizing and Sonifying the Bloch Sphere and Time Dependent Schrodinger Equation
    and visualization of two models used in quantum mechanics the Bloch sphere and the time dependent Schrodinger equation The role of the artist is to make the invisible visible and as such we are interested in providing an experience of these models through real time interaction and multimodal representation Imagine you could shrink yourself down to an electron and navigate the probability wave Would you discover new patterns in the
