abstract : This presentation will introduce structural steel seismic force resisting systems that have been proposed to enhance the response of structures to earthquakes. The focus will be on braced frames used for building structures. The eccentrically braced frame system with replaceable ductile links will be introduced as an example where a minor modification can ...

Abstract: Imagine there’s no block ciphers, it’s easy if you try:-) A (cryptographic) permutation can be thought of as a block cipher (like AES or DES) without a key (or with a fixed key if you prefer). During the SHA-3 competition it became clear that permutation-based hashing, e.g., by using the sponge construction, is superior ... Read more about "Innovations in permutation-based crypto"

Abstract: For my entire career, I’ve been obsessed with definitions. In this informal talk, I’ll describe the latest two I’ve worked on. The first is called IND|C, indistinguishability up to correctness. Given games G and H and a correctness condition C, we define an advantage measure Adv^indc_{G,H,C} wherein G/H distinguishing attacks are effaced, generically and ...

The bacterial flagellar motor is the most complex rotary motor identified in biology. A central transmembrane rotor spins at up to 1300Hz against a ring of ion translocating stators attached to the cell wall, rotating an external helical flagellum to push the bacterium forward. The evolutionally related T3SS used the equivalent of the rotor to ...

It has long been suggested that failure appropriately to inhibit impulses stems from a deficit in prefrontal cortical inhibitory function. Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...

Modular forms and their generalizations are one of the most central concepts in number theory. It took almost 200 years to cultivate the mathematics lying behind the classical (i.e. scalar) modular forms. All of the famous modular forms (e.g. Dedekind eta function) involve a multiplier, this multiplier is a 1-dimensional representation of the underlying group. ...

Graph signal processing (GSP) is an active area of research that seeks to extend to signals defined on irregular graphs tools concepts such as frequency, filtering and sampling that are well understood for conventional signals defined on regular grids. As an example this leads to the definition of so called, graph Fourier transforms (GFTs). In ...

Exceptional sets play an important role in numerous branches of mathematics, for instance in measure theory, topology, harmonic and complex analysis, Banach space theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, probability and ergodic theory, set theory and descriptive set theory, just to mention a few. Exceptional sets describe notions of smallness from various points of view, some notable ... Read more about "Ideals and exceptional sets in Polish spaces"

The photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting with TiO2 as photoanode have been largely studied to using solar energy as a source. However, TiO2 have significant challenges; relatively large band gap, fast recombination speed of photo-generated electron and hole. We then tried two modifications to absorb visible light and suppress recombination. One is using localized surface plasmonic ...

Nowadays, many of the problems traditionally associated to hydraulic engineering do not deal with pure water (or fluid), they involve solid-liquid mixtures. Presence of solid particles in the mixture changes its rheological behaviour, comporting differently than the carrier fluid. Some results of the research carried out with pseudoplastic fluids will be presented during the talk. ...

A graph, or network, is a structure that encodes pairwise relationships and a graph signal is a function defined on the nodes of the graph. The values of the weights on the edges of the graph encode an expectation on the relationship between the respective signal components. A large weight indicates that we expect the ...

I will discuss two loosely-related projects, both involving nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) at temperatures below 30 K. In the first project, we use rapid mixing and rapid freezing to trap transient intermediates in biochemical processes such as protein folding, ligand binding, and oligomerization, on time scales of several milliseconds. The ... Read more about "NMR at very low temperatures: An approach to millisecond-scale structure determination and micron-scale imaging"

Unlike a decade ago, now software is everywhere and everything. What will software be like a decade from now? Will it deliver on the promise of replacing monotonous human work? Will we be able to depend on software doing the right thing, being always available to answer our questions, and malleable enough to quickly adapt ...

Circular economy's contribution to sustainability lies in a balanced relationship between the ecosphere and the technosphere. Its fundamental equilibrium is supported by 3 interdependent conditions: 1) preserving the stock of resources, 2) relieving pollution reservoirs and 3) adapting the human-made capital to optimize economic activity under environmental requirements. Current assessment tools struggle to capture undesirable ... Read more about "Does material circularity rhymes with environmental efficiency?"
