Physics Department Seminar: Dr. Hai-Qing Lin, Beijing Computational Science Research Center; Quantum Phase Transition and Entanglement

Altorfer 501

ABSTRACT

Explore quantities which connect quantum phase transition (QPT) and entanglement are issues of current interest. In this talk, I report our group’s efforts in searching such quantities by studying several well-known quantum many-body systems such as the extended Hubbard model and quantum spin models. First we introduce a few computable quantities one can use to measure the entanglement. Then we present our results of model studies. We show some general features of entanglement which signify QPT and argue the important role played by the low-lying excitation spectra reconstruction near the QPT in identifying the behavior of the entanglement. It is hoped that a unified and intuitive picture on the relation between the QPT and the entanglement could be given. We also discuss how to construct order parameter from reduced density matrix spectra and connection to physical measurement of entanglement.

Center for Science Writings Event: Andrew Russell, "The Promise and Perils of Open Systems"

Babbio 122, Stevens Institute of Technology

Wednesday, October 22, 3-4:30 p.m., Babbio 122
Andrew Russell (Associate Professor of History, Director of the STS Program at Stevens), "The Promise and Perils of Open Systems"
Log in to view lecture remotely HERE

Abstract:

In the 20th century the concept of an “open system” spread throughout the professions, from diplomacy and philosophy to economics and engineering. In the early 21st century, we now commonly hear about the virtues of “openness” in software, science, and government - realms, we are told, that can benefit from the marriage of digital technology and distributed collaboration. At the same time, critics warn that the exuberant rhetoric of “openness” masks power asymmetries and serious problems in process of system design. In this talk Russell will describe how the history of standards for computer networks sheds light on both the promise and perils of so-called “open” systems, including the Internet.

Biography:
Andrew L. Russell is Associate Professor in History and Director of the Program in Science & Technology Studies in the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. He is the author of Open Standards and the Digital Age: History, Ideology, and Networks (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and he has published over a dozen articles and book chapters on standardization in the Bell System, the American system of voluntary standards, the Internet-OSI standards war, and digital cellular networks in the United States and Europe.  He is a graduate of Vassar College (B.A. History, 1996), the University of Colorado at Boulder (M.A. History, 2003), and the Johns Hopkins University (Ph.D. History of Science and Technology, 2007).

The Balance of Power Between Manufacturer and Retailer: Bi-Criteria Optimization Problem Under Imperfect Information

Babbio Center 641

Research Colloquium

Tatyana Chernonog, Ph.D., Department of Management, Bar-Ilan University

ABSTRACT
This work develops a stochastic model of a two-echelon supply chain of virtual products in which the decision makers—a manufacturer and a retailer—are risk-sensitive. Virtual products allow the retailer to avoid holding costs and ensure timely fulfillment of demand with no risk of shortage. Demand is uncertain and depends on both price and sales-effort. We focus on the strategies of both the manufacturer and the retailer under different profit criteria, including the use of bi-criteria. The problem is simplified using the property of stochastic dominance with regard to the profits of the supply chain members. By formulating the problem as Stackelberg games, we show that the problem can be analytically solved by assuming certain common structures of the demand function and of the preferences of both the manufacturer and the retailer with regard to risk (reflected in their respective profit criteria). We also offer guidelines for the formation of efficient sets of decisions under bi-criteria and provide numerical results.

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). He is particularly well known for his contributions to the field of collective atomic effects, spectroscopy with squeezed light, quantum interference, multi-chromatic spectroscopy, and dynamics of open systems. His current interest is in entanglement creation and processing with discrete and continuous variable systems. He was Australian Research Council QEII Fellow, Senior Research and Professorial Fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia, and UK EPSRC Professorial Research Fellow at the Queen’s University of Belfast. Currently, he is a professor at the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

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

Kidde 350, 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.

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.
