SCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: MATHLETES

submitted by: nsf

It's been called "the Queen of Sciences"--mathematics. It might not be as obvious in Olympic sports as physics or materials-engineering, but math--from simple arithmetic to calculus--is part of every jump, every spin, every move the athletes make on snow or ice. Mathematician Edward Burger from Williams College explains why math counts.

Tahereh Mokhtari gives a talk at the LC2CAM conference about the application of shear to enhance aggregation and gelation and to yield hybrid superaggregates.

Continuation angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy and the study of the high T c superconductors

submitted by: icamvid

Juan Campuzano discusses pseudogap, superconductors, and temperature. He also mentions ground state, momentum dependence, and how to know the q's origin.

Introducion to angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy and the study of the high T c superconductors

submitted by: icamvid

Juan Campuzano talks about high Tc superconductors and what makes them so interesting as well as the science of them. Properties of electrons with angle resolved photoemission and pseudogap are also looked at.
