Physics Department Seminar: Dr. Zbigniew Ficek, The National Centre for Applied Physics; Entanglement and steering of entanglement in a multi-mode optomechanical system

Burchard 715

ABSTRACT

The possibility of entangling macroscopic objects has been of interest for many years. Of particular interest is the possibility to entangle macroscopic objects using an optomechanical cavity containing a macroscopic mechanical oscillator such as a movable mirror or vibrating membrane. In this presentation, we discuss multi-partite entanglement, the generation of EPR states and steering of entanglement in a three-mode optomechanical system composed of an atomic ensemble located inside a single-mode cavity with a movable mirror. We examine separately the cases of twomode and three-mode interactions, which are distinguished by a suitable tuning of the mechanical mode to the cavity frequency. In addition, we examine the monogamy relations, the concepts of one-way and two-way steering which quantify the amount of bipartite steering that can be shared between different modes. The concept of collective tripartite steering and the influence of thermal noise on entanglement and steering are also discussed.

BIOGRAPHY

Professor Zbigniew Ficek got his Ph. D. degree from Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland. He is the author and co-author of over 150 research papers, two research books on Quantum Interference (published in 2004) and Quantum-Limit Spectroscopy (2015), a textbook on Quantum Optics for Beginners (2014), and co-editor of a research book on “Quantum Squeezing” (2005).

ESE Seminar - 10/31- Dr. Ed Pohl - "A Case Study Analysis of Inventory Cost and Practices for Operating Room Medical/Surgical Items"

Babbio 122

ESE Seminar
"A Case Study Analysis of Inventory Cost and Practices for Operating Room Medical/Surgical Items"

Dr. Ed Pohl
Center for Innovation in Healthcare Logistics
Department of Industrial Engineering - University of Arkansas

ABSTRACT:  Health care expenditures in the United States reached $2.6 trillion in 2010, nearly ten times the $256 billion spent in 1980.  The rate of growth has decreased slightly recently, but is expected to grow faster than national income levels over the foreseeable future.  Hospital care and clinical services account for 51% of the nation’s health expenditure. These facts motivate the need to put more attention on cost efficiency in the health care industry. According to a research study, supply chain costs may account for as much as 40% of the cost of providing care and it is estimated that if demand and inventory are better managed, the cost savings could range from 6% to 13.5% of total healthcare costs.

Through an industry-wide analysis involving the retail and health care sectors, the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Logistics (CIHL) at the University of Arkansas has identified three supply chain practices that can have a significant impact on the healthcare value chain:  collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR), education and training for materials management, and improved inventory management practices.  A case study for the Mercy Health System indicated that significant cost savings are possible by applying improved inventory management practices to pharmaceutical items.

This project evaluates the potential for cost savings by applying advanced inventory management practices driven by actual usage data in the OR. The focus of the study is on medical/surgical (medsurg) items used in the operating rooms within several Mercy. The medsurg items examined included over 150 items manufactured by Covidien, Inc. The development and adoption of the methodologies used within the case study by the healthcare industry can result in higher fill rates, fewer back orders, higher inventory turns, and decreased overall healthcare inventory costs.

BIO:  Dr. Edward A. Pohl is Department Head, Professor and holder of the 21st Professorship in the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Arkansas. Prior to his appointment as Department Head, Ed served as the Director of the Operations Management Program, the largest graduate program at the University of Arkansas.  Ed currently serves as Director of the Center for Innovation in Healthcare Logistics (CIHL) and the Director of Distance Education in the College of Engineering.  He has participated and led several reliability, risk and supply chain related research efforts at the University of Arkansas.

Before joining Arkansas, Ed spent twenty years in the United States Air Force where he served in a variety of engineering, analysis and academic positions during his career. Previous assignments include the Deputy Director of the Operations Research Center at the United States Military Academy, Operations Analyst in the Office of the Secretary of Defense where he performed independent cost schedule, performance and risk assessments on Major DoD acquisition programs, and as a munitions logistics manager at the Air Force Operational Test Center.

Ed received his Ph.D. in Systems and Industrial Engineering from the University of Arizona. He holds a M.S. in Systems Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology, and M.S. in Reliability Engineering from the University of Arizona, an M.S. in Engineering Management from the University of Dayton, and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Boston University.  His primary research interests are in reliability, engineering optimization, supply chain risk analysis, decision making, and quality.  Ed is a Fellow of IIE, and a Senior Member of IEEE and ASQ, a member of ASEM, and INCOSE.

10/30 - FE SEM: Ghoddusi & Bonisi - The 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics Explained

Babbio 122

The 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics Explained

PROF. HAMED GHODDUSI & PROF. STEFANO BONINI
ASSISTANT PROFESSORS, HOWE SCHOOL

ABSTRACT: 
The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2013 was awarded to Jean Tirole "for his analysis of market power and regulation. Many industries are dominated by a small number of large firms or a single monopoly. Left unregulated, such markets often produce socially undesirable results – prices higher than those motivated by costs, or unproductive firms that survive by blocking the entry of new and more productive ones. Many industries are dominated by a small number of large firms or a single monopoly. Left unregulated, such markets often produce socially undesirable results – prices higher than those motivated by costs, or unproductive firms that survive by blocking the entry of new and more productive ones. From the mid-1980s and onwards, Jean Tirole has breathed new life into research on such market failures. His analysis of firms with market power provides a unified theory with a strong bearing on central policy questions: how should the government deal with mergers or cartels, and how should it regulate monopolies.”

As an annual tradition of Stevens please join us on Thursday, October 30st, at 5 pm in Babbio 122 for a very special Financial Engineering Seminar to commemorate and explain the work of the 2014 Economics Nobel Laureates. Speakers will include Drs. Bonini and Ghoddusi.

He has also been affiliated with Oxford Energy Institute, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), UNDP, and UNIDO, as a visiting researcher or consultant. His research interests include Macro-Finance/Asset Pricing, Financial Innovation and Contracts, and Energy & Environmental Economics / Policy.

Prof. Bonini’s research focuses on how companies raise and manage capital in financial markets, on the quality of information provided by equity and debt analysts and on the Venture Capital and Private Equity industry. In his research, he has addressed the accuracy of target prices issued by sell-side equity analysts, the efficiency of alternative equity issuing mechanism, the determinants of venture capital investments and the effects of private equity investors on the governance of firms. He has been invited to contribute to the Oxford University Press Venture Capital Handbook, The Elgar Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship and Governance, and the Springer Book on Entrepreneurship, Finance, Governance and Ethics, and he has received considerable attention in the financial media (WSJ, Fortune, NY Times).

CAL Lecture: Mark Schubin '71, "The Fandom of the Opera: How the Audience for a Centuries-Old Art Form Helped Create Modern Media Technology"

Bissinger Room, Howe 4th Floor, Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT
Believe it or not, electronic home entertainment was invented for opera audiences. So were consumer headphones, movies, newscasts, and pay-cable. The first sportscasts were in opera houses. The first wireless broadcast? The first commercial digital recording? The first live subtitles? All opera.

The idea of transmitting opera motion pictures and sounds live to theaters worldwide appeared in print in 1877, to homes in 1882. Without opera, there might not be communications satellites. And, according to pioneering radiologist Percy Brown, “No opera, no X-rays!”

The first opera recordings were made 17 years before Edison’s first phonograph, and 76 years before that an automaton played opera music for Marie Antoinette. In the 21st century, labs around the world are working on ultra-high-speed communications systems for opera and have discussed neutrino communications and quantum entanglement. 

Galileo, Kepler, Lavoisier, Matisse – all had opera-technology connections. Stereo sound? The laryngoscope? Broadcast rights? All for opera. Really. Come and be amazed.

BIOGRAPHY
Multiple-Emmy-award-winning Mark Schubin ‘71 has been working professionally in media technology since 1967 and writing about its history since 1972. He has shot for the Rolling Stones, lit Philadelphia's Academy of Music, mixed Stevie Wonder, hooked up the TV in Eric Clapton's bedroom, and performed forensic analysis for the Woody Allen/Mia Farrow child-custody battle. 

Visiting all seven continents, Schubin has also sung at most of the great opera houses of the world, appeared inside the penguin enclosure of the Central Park Zoo, and piloted a blimp from Coney Island to the Statue of Liberty.

CAL Lecture: Lindsey R. Swindall, "The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World"

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

CAL Lecture: Lindsey R. Swindall (Visiting Assistant Professor of History, Sam Houston State University)
"The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World"

ABSTRACT
The Southern Negro Youth Congress and the Council on African Affairs were two organizations created as part of early civil rights efforts to address race and labor issues during the Great Depression. They fought within a leftist, Pan-African framework against disenfranchisement, segregation, labor exploitation, and colonialism.  In this lecture, Lindsey Swindall will situate the development of the SNYC, based in Alabama, and the Council on African Affairs, based in New York City, within the scope of the long civil rights movement, and show how these groups conceptualized the U.S. South as being central to a vision of a global African diaspora. This lecture will also highlight the cooperation that occurred between progressive activists in cities like New York from the Popular Front era to the 1960s.

BIOGRAPHY
Lindsey R. Swindall earned her doctorate in Afro-American Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  She has written several books on radical activism in the New York City area including The Politics of Paul Robeson's Othello and Paul Robeson: A Life of Activism and Art.  This lecture comes from her most recent book, The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World: Southern Civil Rights and Anticolonialism, 1937-1955, which came out in July.  She is also very interested in food history and co-edited a volume titled American Appetites: A Documentary Reader that was published in September.

11/6 - FE SEM: Alan Hawkes - "Hawkes processes in Finance"

Babbio 122

Hawkes processes in Finance 

Prof. Alan Hawk

ABSTRACT:  Since about 2005, Hawkes Processes have been widely applied in the finance literature. In this talk I will give an introduction to the main properties of these processes; discuss a variety of examples of their application in finance; finally, give a brief outline of research currently being undertaken with colleagues in Swansea.

BIO:  After obtaining First Class Honors in Mathematics at King's College London, Alan moved up the road to UCL where he completed a PhD on queuing theory applied to road traffic (supervisor M.S. Bartlett), while also lecturing in the Statistics Department. He was then, for five years, Reader in Mathematical Statistics at Durham University before becoming Professor of Statistics at Swansea in 1974 — still there as Honorary Research Professor. He has served on the Council of the Royal Statistical Society and the International Committee of the Biometric Society.  In the early 1970s Alan published a series of five articles on self-exciting and mutually exciting point processes that later came to be known in the literature as Hawkes Processes. These were quickly taken up by people analyzing earthquake sequences. 

Meanwhile, Alan moved on to a variety of other things: mainly applied stochastic modeling such as systems reliability. His major work has been pioneering the development of stochastic models for the dynamics of ion channels in biological membranes, in conjunction with David Colquhoun FRS, Professor of Pharmacology at UCL.  These are essential links in the communication system carrying messages around the body, and are important sites of drug action. This work constitutes an important scientific achievement that is very highly cited. 

A few years ago Alan was surprised to discover that, since about 2000, Hawkes Processes started appearing all over the place to describe gang warfare in LA, burglaries, genetics, e-marketing, etc. as well as being a fruitful subject of further theoretical development by mathematicians. Since about 2005, the most active field of application has been in the finance literature.

In 2012, Dr. Maggie Chen persuaded Alan to rekindle his interest in Hawkes Processes, learn something about finance and make a contribution to the research of the finance group in Swansea. He is enjoying it.

US Navy Information Session

Fielding, 3rd Fl. Howe

Nuclear Officer

If you want to combine technical know-how with a desire to lead, consider taking command of your future as an Officer in the Surface Warfare (Nuclear) community of America’s Navy. Being a Surface Warfare Officer armed with additional training in the fundamentals of Navy Nuclear Propulsion equates to being one of the most sought after professionals in today’s Navy – and an extension of our nation’s greatest tool of diplomacy.

Naval Reactors

From its location at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C., Naval Reactors (NR) has cradle-to-grave responsibility for all shipboard nuclear power plants, shore-based prototypes, and nuclear propulsion support facilities for America’s Navy. The wide array of technical areas involved in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program include:

Reactor and fluid systems design

Reactor physics

Materials development

Component design such as steam generators, pumps and valves

Instrumentation and control of reactor, steam and electric plants

Testing and quality control

Shielding

Chemistry and radiological controls

Working out of NR headquarters, there are approximately 380 engineers who technically manage the various areas of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program. These are some of the brightest minds the Navy has to offer. Their intelligence, backgrounds and comprehensive training provide them with extensive knowledge of all aspects of nuclear propulsion, as well as the flexibility to move into other technical areas involved in nuclear propulsion work.

Nuclear Instructor

Atomic physics. Thermodynamics. Integral calculus. Some students live for this kind of challenging subject matter. And among them are those rare few who find that teaching the material can be even more fulfilling than studying it. In a sense, their ability to apply what they learn is magnified through the many individuals they go on to inspire.

Come network with US Navy recruiters and learn about open opportunities!

Must be a US Citizen to apply.

Humanities Forum: Rob Harari, "From the ICU to Your Classroom: How Acoustics Affects Comprehension"

Morton 324, Stevens Institute of Technology

Humanities Forum: Rob Harari (Industry Associate Professor, Music & Technology)
"From the ICU to Your Classroom: How Acoustics Affects Comprehension"

Abstract
In the hospital environment, there have been indicators that as a patient’s stay is extended, increased occurrences of delirium present as well as potential impairment of cognitive ability. By comparison, the classroom environment is subject to many of the same noise sources, minus the diagnostic metering devices necessary for health care. Through spectrograph analysis, it will be possible to see what masking frequencies  generated environmentally and by diagnostic equipment – would directly interfere with the brain’s ability to interpret signals from the Cochlear membrane, to identify the frequency range directly related to speech intelligibility. This talk will explore how the acoustical profile of the patient room and classroom environment contributes to this condition. 

Biography
Rob Harari has versatility in the field of audio and music with alternating roles as a composer, music producer, audio engineer, musician, sound designer and educator. Over a 30-year career in music, Harari has been fortunate enough to work in the studio and tour with major artists while serving in multiple roles. Recently, Harari has added Clinical Researcher at Hackensack University Medical Center to the list of endeavors. 
Taking the decades of experience creating and mixing sound in a variety of venues, and combining that with an appreciation of how the audience reacts in any particular venue, has led to the exploration of how sound inherently causes physiological reactions in our bodies. Harari believes that if we can map the brain while analyzing specific aural signals, we can open the door to understanding how to live better through innovative design specifically focused on sound profiles of our environment.

Digital Identity Protection - Concepts and Issues
Prof. Elisa Bertino (Purdue University)

Abstract:https://www.cs.purdue.edu/people/images/faculty/bertino.jpg

Digital identity management (DIM) has emerged as a critical foundation for supporting successful interaction in today's globally interconnected society. It is crucial not only for the conduct of business and government but also for a large and growing body of electronic or online social interactions. Digital identity management is usually coupled with the notion of federation. The goal of federations is to provide users with protected environments to federate identities by the proper management of identity attributes.  Federations provide a controlled method by which federation members can provide more integrated and complete services to a qualified group of individuals within certain sets of business transactions. By controlling the scope of access to participating sites, and by enabling secure, cross-domain transmission of user's personal information, federations can make the perpetration of identity frauds more difficult, as well as reduce their frequency, and their potential impact. In this talk we will first discuss basic digital identity concepts and requirements towards DIM solutions and we will overview relevant initiatives currently undergoing in academia and industry. We will then focus on the problem of identity theft and discuss an initial solution to the problem of establishing and protecting digital identity.


Bio:

Elisa Bertino is professor of computer science at Purdue University, and serves as Director of Purdue Cyber Center and Research Director of the Center for Information and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS). She is also an adjunct  professor of Computer Science & Info tech at RMIT. Prior to joining Purdue in 2004, she was a professor and department head at the Department of Computer Science and Communication of the University of Milan. She has been a visiting researcher at the IBM Research Laboratory (now Almaden) in San Jose, at the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation, at Rutgers University, at Telcordia Technologies. Her recent research focuses on database security, digital identity management, policy systems, and security for web services. She is a Fellow of ACM and of IEEE. She received the IEEE Computer Society 2002 Technical Achievement Award and the IEEE Computer Society 2005 Kanai Award. She has been appointed EiC of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing starting January 2014.
