  • Doug Scalapino, UCSB, Physics, The Question of Pairing Glue in the Cuprate Superconductors
    will reflect the frequency spectrum associated with inelastic magnetic neutron scattering This frequency scale is small compared with U or the bare bandwidth and one speaks of a retarded spin fluctuation mediated pairing glue Alternatively in the RVB approach as noted by P W Anderson the exchange coupling J which attracts electrons of opposite spins on neighboring sites is the result of states of very high energy In this case

  • Stefania Tutino, UCSB, Copernicanism and the Catholic Church in the Early Seventeenth Century: New and Old Science in Context
    the old and backward intellectual establishment against the new science But is it really so By examining in detail how some key Catholic leaders responded to the challenge posed by the new physics and astronomy I will show that things are not so simple and I will conclude with some broad considerations on the relationship between science and religion in early modern Europe and on the impact of science on

  • Ed van den Heuvel, University of Amsterdam, The European Discovery of Australia
    planned expeditions which led to the discovery of Tasmania and New Zealand It was however only in 1770 that Captain Cook discovered the Eastern Coast of the continent and claimed it for Britain How did it come about that Australia was discovered and why did it take so long before Europeans got really interested in this continent Begin streaming QuickTime of the whole talk high bandwidth Or right click to

  • Yves Pomeau, Ecole Normale Sup, Paris, Optical Solitons as Quantum Objects
    either fiber Classically the latter situation makes a state of propagation with two exactly reciprocal realizations In the quantum case such a situation does not exist as an eigenstate because of the possibility of quantum tunneling between the two fibers Such a tunneling is a purely quantum phenomenon without counterpart in the classical theory seeing the solitons as objects made of classical polarization and electromagnetic fields When estimating the rate

  • Gabriela Gonzalez, LSU, Searching for Gravitational Waves
    The LIGO gravitational wave detectors have achieved unprecedented sensitivity to gravitational waves and future upgrades promise to open a window to a new observational science I will describe the present status of the detectors describe the results obtained from the data taken already and discuss the possibilities for the near future Begin streaming QuickTime of the whole talk high bandwidth Or right click to download the movie Or right click

  • Dr. Andreas Albrecht, UC Davis, Fun with Dark Energy
    theoretical and observational domain I will present two of these topics that particularly interest me Dark Energy and Cosmic Equilibrium How a cosmological constant could make the universe look like a box of gas and what this could mean for cosmology Probes of Dark Energy A host of new probes promise to tell us more about dark energy but what do we really want to know Begin streaming QuickTime of
