Owing to their high surface areas, tunable pore dimensions, and adjustable surface functionality, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) can offer advantages for a variety of gas storage and gas separation applications. In an effort to help curb greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, we are developing new MOFs for use as solid adsorbents in post- and pre-combustion ...

We show the existence of independent random matching of a large population in a continuous-time dynamical system, where the matching intensities could be general non-negative jointly continuous functions on the space of type distributions and the time line. In particular, we construct a continuum of independent continuous-time Markov processes that is derived from random mutation, ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Continuous-time random matching"

Abstract: Remote sensing of water quality works well in clear open ocean waters where the only optically active substance in water is phytoplankton. Other optically active substances – coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) and suspended solids, are mainly phytoplankton degradation products and therefore in correlation with phytoplankton biomass, usually expressed as concentration of chlorophyll-a. Coastal ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Remote sensing of optically complex inland and coastal waters""

Abstract: Families of automorphic forms have seen a lot of interest over recent years. An approach to study them is through their Hecke eigenvalues. In this talk I want to explain current and recent work on the distribution of those eigenvalues in families of spherical automorphic forms. (Joint work with T. Finis and N. Templier.)

The first principles computation of materials properties was once restricted to the investigation of a few structures at a time. The dramatic growth in the availability of computational resources now allows many thousands of computations to be performed independently and at the same time. One use of this power is to screen for novel or ... Read more about "Structure prediction and computational materials discovery"
