Math Physics Seminar, Jeffrey Schenker, Michigan State, "Localization in the disordered Holstein model"
Tue, Mar 8, 2016, 4:30 pm5:30 pm
The Holstein model (in the one particle sector) describes a lattice particle interacting with independent Harmonic oscillators at each site of the lattice. We consider this model with on site disorder in the particle potential. This is proposed a simple model in which it may be possible to test some ideas regarding multi/many-body localization…
How to Be a Male Ally to Women in STEM - Dr. Christopher Kilmartin
Thu, Feb 11, 2016, 12:00 pm1:00 pm
Although women have made considerable progress in entering STEM fields, they continue to be an underrepresented minority, and the male-dominated cultures of these fields can pose challenges to their inclusion. Most men are respectful of women and want to be welcoming and inclusive, yet many are unsure about how to do so. In this presentation Dr…
