For 130 years, a cylinder made of a platinum-iridium alloy stored near Paris was the official definition of a kilogram, the basic unit of mass.What happened to the kilogram?
Semiconductor nanocrystals have attracted great interest for color conversion and enrichment in quality lighting and displays.[AP483] Semiconductor Nanocrystal Optoelectronics: A Journey from Colloidal Quantum Dots to Wells
I shall discuss sharp moment comparison inequalities (a.k.a. Khinchin inequalities) for weighted sums of i.i.d. random variables of type L (originating in statistical mechanics in Lee-Yang theorems).Sharp constants in Khinchin inequalities for type L random variables
Ion trap quantum computers at first glance have no materials challenges. Ions are all the same by nature and they are trapped and manipulated by electromagnetic fields.Materials challenges in ion trap quantum computers
Semidefinite programming (SDP) is a powerful framework from convex optimization that has striking potential for data science applications.Scalable semidefinite programming
