Toward Quantum Computing - PDF - December 9, 2009
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Imagine a computer that made direct use of quantum mechanical phenomena. Such a machine would likely operate exponentially faster than our present computers. Zahid Hasan is leading an international scientific collaboration that has observed an exciting and strange behavior in electrons' spin within a new material that could be harnessed to transform computing and electronics. The team believes that the discovery is an advancement in the fundamental physics of quantu

Asian Security Seminar: Building Asia's Security
As global economic and strategic weight shifts to Asia, countries in the region are considering how to protect themselves better in the uncertain strategic landscape of the twenty-first century. Alliances with the United States remain pivotal, but China is an ever more dominant presence. Faced with this, and with growing transnational threats such as terrorism, energy insecurity and infectious diseases, Asian governments are increasingly interested in multilateral security cooperation. New multi

3.4 Specialisation within language areas: brain scanning

Is there any evidence from the undamaged brain that the view derived from aphasia is indeed correct? The most useful methodologies here use either PET or functional MRI (fMRI) scanning to establish which parts of the brain are active in particular tasks. The difficulty is that a standard linguistic task, such as understanding a sentence's meaning, involves phonology and syntax and semantics, and thus is not helpful when trying to tease out which of these subtasks happens in which areas.

Wave propagation in random media: diffusion vs. localization
Dr. Thomas Wellens (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): As it is well known, waves are fundamentally distinct from (classical) particles in their ability to display interference. However, in presence of disorder, interferences tend to be washed out. In this case, wave propagation reduces to a simple diffusion process - like a random walk of a classical particle ("soccer ball in the forest"). But under appropriate circumstances, some interferences may also survive the disorder average and i
