Online via Zoom
The colloquium will be held once a month online. Each event consists of a one-hour talk on mathematics followed by a one-hour diversity panel discussion session. Please register before July 18, 5 pm. Click here to register!

Speaker : Professor Motoko Kotani, Tohoku University

Part I Title : Discrete geometric analysis and its application Abstract: Discrete geometric analysis is an attempt to discretize geometric analysis. Mathematics is often said “a common language of science”. As our world consists of atoms, which we consider as discrete objects, developing language to describe discrete objects, their geometric structures in particular, is important. I would like to discuss our challenge to establish discrete geometric analysis and its application to other science.

Part II

Have fun in interacting with people from different interests.

Title: Are black holes and particles the same thing?

Abstract: I'll discuss the similarities between fundamental particles, thermal systems and black holes. We will play some quantitative games to see exactly how black holes are different from particles in the real world.

Having paid the real world our respects, we will talk about how black holes and fundamental particles *are* the same in string theory - a story rarely covered in popular propaganda, but central to the second superstring revolution. Funny enough, it allows for the "discovery" of new particles through writing down new black hole solutions.

I will then advertise my current work, in which I'm doing exactly that for string theory's wonky cousin, Higher-Spin Gravity.

Advanced optical imaging techniques including confocal, multiphoton, and metamaterials-assistant super-resolution microscopies will then be surveyed. Coverage of selected topics is as follows.

Wave optics Metamaterials Fluorescence microscopy Super-resolution microscopy Brief overview of quantum optics and fluorescence imaging

Profile : Yeon Ui Lee is an assistant professor at Chungbuk National University, South Korea. Her research interests include, but not limited to, nanophotonics and super-resolution imaging, and she has an excellent record in the research field of metamaterial assisted illumination nanoscopies. Prof. Yeon Ui Lee received her Ph.D. degree from Ewha Womans University, South Korea, in 2015. She was a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, San Diego before she got tenured. Here at OIST in Síle Nic Chormaic Unit she is looking forward to fruitful interactions and collaborations. She will be visiting until August 20th, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: yeonuilee@cbnu.ac.kr
