  • Dr. David Pine, UCSB, Colloidal Molecules and Finite Sphere Packings
    colloidal spheres in small liquid emulsion droplets Removing liquid from the droplets leads to packings of spheres that minimize the second moment of the mass distribution The structures of the packings range from sphere doublets triangles and tetrahedra to exotic polyhedra not found in infinite lattice packings molecules or minimum potential energy clusters The emulsion system presents a route to produce new colloidal structures and a means to study how

  • Dr. Brad Marston, Brown University, The Quantum Mechanics of Global Warming
    present a simple physical picture of what may happen as the concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide continue to increase I also utilize some basic astronomy and wave mechanics to decipher historical and paleoclimatic records I conclude with a personal perspective on the politics versus the science of global warming References for Further Study Begin WebCam and audio for the whole talk high bandwidth or medium bandwidth Or

  • Dr. Alex Filippenko, Berkeley, Evidence from Type Ia Supernovae for a Decelerating, then Accelerating Universe and Dark Energy
    recently derived from WMAP measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation A number of possible systematic effects dust supernova evolution thus far don t seem to eliminate the need for Omega X 0 Most recently analyses of supernovae at z 1 0 1 7 reveal an early epoch of deceleration followed by acceleration Several groups are now in the process of measuring hundreds of supernovae with z 0 2 0

    and give an overview of the experimental situation In conclusion I will point out that what was once the subject of philosophical discussions between Einstein and Bohr quantum weirdness has turned into a physical property entanglement at the root of the rapidly developing field of quantum information A reference for this talk quant ph 0402001 Begin WebCam and audio for the whole talk high bandwidth or medium bandwidth Or begin
