Upcoming Events

Radio observations of the redshifted 21 cm line of hydrogen will allow exploration of cosmic epochs before the first luminous objects formed: the epoch of reionization, cosmic dawn, and the cosmic dark ages. This talk will describe the Lunar Orbit Array, a Chinese instrument under study to orbit the Moon to measure the global spectrum of the sky and make sky maps from 1 MHz to 200 MHz, corresponding to redshifts from ~ 1000 to 7.

Quantum computing is a promising area of science, but after 20+ years of tremendous research efforts and enormous investments large scale, general purpose, universal quantum computers capable of solving realistic problems are not yet available. However, small scale universal quantum computers and "quantum annealers" capable of tackling certain classical optimization problems are now available with limited access. In this talk, I will present our recent advances in the development of quantum combinatorial optimization algorithms like QAOA. I will also overview the state of quantum computing in Argonne National Laboratory.

I have been writing poetry on the nonlinear, dynamic aspects of life, climate change, and our discussions of chaos for the past twenty years and will read selected work, including poems from my recently published book The Only Home We Know (Tebot Bach, 2019)
