The bridge distance and the topological index are measures of the complexity of the bridge splitting of a knot. In 2016, Johnson and Moriah gave a formula for the bridge distance of the canonical bridge sphere of a knot in a highly twisted plat projection in terms of the height and the width of the plat. Essentially, if the plat is high, then the bridge distance is high and the topological index equals one. Not much is known about the…

Silica-based glasses are increasingly becoming vital components in our current technology, from optical data transmission lines, to electronics, to optical lenses, to smartphone screens. These materials are inherently brittle and subject to failure under shock, non-equilibrium stress states, or corrosive environments.  Identifying new compositions and processing conditions that result in improved fracture resistance (i.e. a higher fracture toughness) is achievable through materials design approaches. However, discovery primarily remains an empirically determined procedure.  Atomistic molecular dynamics can be a powerful tool…

At the turn of the twentieth century, physicist Henri Bénard heated a shallow plate of fluid from below. For temperatures above a critical value, the fluid’s evenly heated state became unstable as thermal convection took hold; heated fluid rose in localized areas while cooler fluid fell nearby. The rising and falling fluid created hexagonal convection cells, squares, and stripes. Suppose that we modify Bénard’s experiment by heating only the left half plate. We expect the fluid on the right to remain…

GEMS Workshop: Working Together without a Leader with Professor Jasper Weinburd of Harvey Mudd College

TOPIC: Working Together without a Leader Bees all work together by communicating and obeying the orders of the Queen. Other animals gather in swarms, flocks, or schools and move in complicated ways without any leader at all. In a school of fish, each one is identical and they all follow the same simple rules. Yet they still manage to form tight bait balls and make sharp turns in unison. So a school of fish is more than just a group of fish;…
