Fermat's last theorem by Kenneth Ribet( visu )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Professor Ribet of the Mathematics Dept. at the University of California, Berkeley summarizes the broad outlines of the proof of Fermat's last theorem. The proof depends on a construction of G. Frey which associated an implausible elliptic curve to each solution to Fermat's equation. A recent theorem of A. Wiles shows that the elliptic curve in question is "modular", i.e. is derived from a modular form. A theorem proved in 1986 allows one to obtain a contradiction ... it prevents the implausible elliptic curve from being modular

String theory towards a theory of nothing by M Green( Computer File )
3 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Michael Green discusses how string theory may provide the framework for a consistent quantum theory of gravity unified with the other physical forces. He reviews the underlying principles of the theory illustrating interconnections with other areas of theoretical physics, such as statistical mechanics on random surfaces. Recent developments, such as the string description of black holes and the search for a quantum description of space-time based on string theory are also described
Studying dark energy with supernovae now, soon, and the not-too-distant future by Saul Perlmutter( Computer File )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Dr. Saul Perlmutter, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, talks about supernova measurements of the universe's (accelerating) expansion history. The next-generation measurements must take us a dramatic step forward in constraints on systematic uncertainties, since the previous measurements already have statistical uncertainties that are close to the current systematics limits. He shows how some recent results set the stage for these advances, and describes a series of ground- and space-based projects and a new satellite experiment (the SuperNova / Acceleration Probe, "SNAP") that promise a systematics-controlled prize: a detailed expansion history of the universe that can teach us about the nature of the mysterious "dark energy" that accelerates the universe
Ultracold atoms by Claude Cohen-Tannoudji( Computer File )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Professor Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Department of Physics, l'Ecole Normale Sup'erieure, Paris, France reviews the various physical mechanisms allowing one to cool atoms to very low temperatures, in microKelvin and even in the nanoKelvin ranges. He also discusses possible applications of such ultracold atoms
An atomic abacus trapped ion quantum computing experiments at NIST by Brian DeMarco( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Dr. Brian DeMarco, Post-doctoral Research Fellow, NIST describes their current work. Trapped atomic ions are an ideal system for exploring quantum information science because deterministic state preparation and efficient state detection are possible and coherent manipulation of atomic systems is relatively advanced. In their experiment, a few singly charged Be ions are confined by static and radio-frequency electric fields in a micro-machined linear Paul trap. The internal and motional states of the ions are coherently manipulated using applied laser light. Their focus is on demonstrating the necessary ingredients to produce a scalable quantum computing scheme and on simplifying and improving quantum logic gates
From high-energy neutrino astrophysics to abrupt climate change to microbial immortality by P. Buford Price( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. P. Buford Price, Dept. of Physics, UC Berkeley gives a talk suggesting how to parlay crazy ideas into discoveries in seemingly unrelated fields. He states, in the 1960's, Fleischer, Walker and I exploited the crazy idea that molecules and lunar minerals might permanently register the tracks of nuclear particles. Spinoffs of that idea included fission-track dating, Nucleopore filters, and radon monitoring in homes. The AMANDA high-energy neutrino observatory at the South Pole was born as the result of two of my students hearing a talk by Francis Halzen and deciding to measure the transparency of polar ice. The success of AMANDA and the decision to fund the IceCube observatory hinged on our understanding how micron-size dust particles scatter and absorb the Cherenkov light that makes neutrino astronomy feasible. The first spinoff of AMANDA was our Dust Logger, which fits down a borehole in 3000 m of polar ice and has enabled us to relate the dust particle record to climate change and to confirm the important role of volcanic eruptions as a driver of abrupt worldwide climate change. A second spinoff is our microbe logger, which has been deployed in Lake Tahoe and South Pole ice and may some day go to Mars and Jupiter's moon Europa
Neutrino world present and future by Boris Kayser( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. Boris Kayser, Theoretical Physics Dept., Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory discusses neutrinos, which are among the most abundant particles in the universe. In the past few years, compelling evidence has been found that the neutrinos made in the earth's atmosphere by cosmic rays, and those made in the sun, can morph from one "flavor" to another. This flavor change implies that neutrinos have nonzero masses, and opens a whole new world for us to explore. In this talk, he explains what has been learned about neutrinos so far, identifies some of the major open questions, and discusses future experiments that can help us to answer them
Studying the structure of the space-time and the brain with atomic magnetometers by Michael Romalis( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. Michael Romalis, Dept. of Physics, Princeton University, describes recent advances in the ultra-sensitive alkali-metal and noble gases magnetometers that allow them to compete in sensitivity and spatial resolution with most sensitive SQUID magnetometers. Several applications of such magnetometers for tests of fundamental symmetries, detection of biological magnetic fields, and NMR are discussed. They have developed a self-compensating co-magnetometer using an alkali-metal and a noble gas that is only sensitive to anomalous spin couplings beyond the Standard Model, which can be caused, for example, by non-commutativity of space-time. They have also demonstrated localization of magnetic fields using a multi-channel magnetometer and are developing a system for mapping of the magnetic fields generated by the brain
The roles of symmetries in nature by B Zumino( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. Bruno Zumino, Physics Dept., UC Berkeley discusses symmetries, which play a very important role in nature. Some of these (e.g. mirror symmetry, time reversal and the symmetry that relates particles to antiparticles) are described by discrete transformations. These are not independent of one another, but are related by an important property of space-time that is implied by Einstein's theory of relativity. Other symmetries involve smooth transformations; some are only approximately valid, but are still very useful for an understanding of nature. There are also speculated symmetries, of which the most important is called supersymmetry, and relates the properties of very different particles. In spite of the lack of direct experimental evidence, there are compelling arguments for its validity. In theories such as string theory that attempt to unify quantum mechanics with Einstein's gravity, a new concept emerges to replace in part that of symmetry, the concept of duality
Imaging the early universe with ACBAR by William Holzapfel( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. William Holzapfel, Physics Dept., UC Berkeley talks about the Arcminute Cosmology Bolometer Array Receiver (ACBAR). Primary anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) encode a wealth of information about the early Universe. Recent degree-scale experiments have begun to exploit the potential of the CMB as a precision probe of cosmology with encouraging results. High-resolution images of the CMB can be used to provide improved constraints on cosmological parameters and study the growth of structure in the Universe. ACBAR is a powerful new instrument designed to image the CMB with resolution of 5 arcminutes. ACBAR was deployed to the South Pole in December 2000, and has recently produced the most sensitive images of the CMB of any experiment to date. He discusses the construction and operation of the receiver, and presents the key results from the first two years of observations
Control of quantum systems for information processing by K. Birgitta Whaley( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Prof. K. Birgitta Whaley, Dept. of Chemistry, UC Berkeley, spoke about the physical realization of quantum information processing which sets daunting challenges for control of interacting quantum systems. After outlining the requirements for such control to provide the large-scale quantum logic required for algorithmic speedup, she describes some advances in theory of implementations. Applications are given to gas-phase and solid-state implementations
