ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series Splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen is an ecofriendly way to produce high-purity hydrogen fuels and has shown substantial promise as a means for renewable energy storage. To enable widespread deployment of water electrolyzers, it is of paramount importance to develop efficient, durable and inexpensive water splitting ...

In order to achieve true economic feasibility of future biorefineries, it should be ensured that maximum value is derived from all individual components of lignocellulose. Especially the catalytic conversion of the lignin component to well defined aromatic compounds has proven challenging. Furthermore, the downstream processing of the platform chemicals obtained from cellulose(s) and lignin still ...

In this talk I discuss Hamiltonian truncation, a toolkit to construct quantum field theories. Hamiltonian truncation is in many ways orthogonal to the more familiar lattice regularization, and it can be used to systematically compute QFT observables with little computational effort. In the first part of this talk I will review the basic idea behind ... Read more about "Hamiltonian truncation and the S^3 partition function"

Deep learning has been immensely successful at a variety of tasks, ranging from classification to artificial intelligence. Yet why it works is unclear. Learning corresponds to fitting training data, which is implemented by descending a very high-dimensional loss function. Two central questions are (i) since the loss is a priori not convex, why doesn't this ... Read more about "On the geometry of the landscape underlying deep learning"

Microscopy has fueled biological discoveries for centuries, but technical progress during the last decades has greatly expanded the type and quantity of biological information that can be revealed by imaging. Advances in instrumentation, labeling and computation are driving an imaging data tsunami on par with that of DNA sequencing. We illustrate this trend and discuss ...
