The effective isolation of high-level radioactive waste emplaced in deep geological repositories is based upon the multi-barrier principle (the KBS-3V concept). It is assumed that bentonites and montmorillonitic clays, which will be used as the buffer and backfill material, will provide for the stabilisation and mechanical protection of the container, limit advective transfer, reduce the ...

In this talk I will fill in an analogy between Verdier duality for sheaves and Koszul duality for algebras over operads. To make this analogy precise we will consider the underlying categorical structure present in both situations. Time permitting I will explain how understanding Koszul duality for modular operads from this perspective can be used ...

Abstract: Methanogenic archaea are among the biochemically and physiologically best studied groups of microorganisms and, by producing the greenhouse gas methane, play an important role in regulating global climate. Research has shown these Archaea to be widespread in anoxic freshwater and marine sediments. Yet, many open questions remain. Genomic analyses on recently discovered archaeal phyla ...

I will show that continuous optogenetic stimulation of excitatory neurons in visual cortex results in strong gamma-band oscillations, and respective white-noise stimulation reveals gamma-band resonance. Correspondingly, visual stimulation with artificial or natural stimuli induces gamma-band synchronization. Gamma in visual area V4 entails gamma-rhythmic modulation of the gain of spike responses and of behavioral reaction times. ... Read more about "Rhythms for Cognition: Communication through Coherence"

The finite element system framework captures essential features of known mixed finite element spaces and has enabled the construction of new spaces of vector fields for PDEs with variational formulations in H(curl) and H(div), or, more generally, sequences of spaces of differential forms with such regularity. In joint work with Kaibo Hu we have generalized ... Read more about "Finite element systems and complexes of differential forms for the Stokes equation"
