Abstract: Ordinary differential equations, and in general a dynamical system viewpoint, have seen a resurgence of interest in developing fast optimization methods, mainly thanks to the availability of well-established analysis tools. In this talk, I will provide an overview of fast algorithms and recent results from a dynamical systems perspective. I will then describe a ...

Efforts to engineer polymer material mechanics is increasingly coupled to the design of transient crosslink dynamics. We have sought to gain a deeper understanding of how polymer gel mechanical properties can be controlled over multiple hierarchical time-scales via design of bioinspired metal-coordinate crosslink structure on multiple length-scales. By utilizing metal ioncoordination complexes and metal nanoparticle-coordination ...

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 ...
