Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Developing value-added biomaterials
Time: 12:05 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall (Refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Dani Zhu, UW Department of Food Science
Abstract: High quality, consumer’s desirous; low cost, manufacturers’ desperate. In this talk, several approaches, i.e., by manipulating different interaction forces among the macromolecules, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, at the molecular level to develop value-added biomaterials from the waste of food processing will be presented.<br>

Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Oscillations and Baryogenesis
Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: David McKeen, University of Washington
Abstract: In the context of inflationary cosmology, the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe is a mystery. Dynamical explanations of this asymmetry are generally called baryogenesis. I will describe a new mechanism for baryogenesis at low temperatures, i.e. below the QCD confinement temperature, involving the (CP-violating) oscillation of states made of strongly interacting particles. In the course of this talk, I will also make connections to neutron-antineutron oscillations, clearing up issues that exist in the literature and pointing the way to novel experimental tests.
