Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: “Understanding the Phase Transformation Mechanism of Li2MnO3, from First-principles”

Monday, March 02, 2015 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Abstract: In this talk, I will present my first-principles calculations on the thermodynamics and kinetics of the Li2MnO3. Although the Li2MnO3 is believed to play an important role in the Li-rich composite materials, promising candidates of Li-ion battery cathode, the material behaviors of the Li2MnO3 have been rarely explained. In particular, the phase transformation of the Li2MnO3 from its layered structure to the spinel-like structure is an urgent issue to be addressed before the commercialization of the Li-rich composite cathode materials.

Pattern Theory Seminar - From Pixels to Local Layers: Exploring Flexible Representations for Motion Estimation - Deqing Sun, Harvard

Wednesday, March 04, 2015 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Division of Applied Mathematics, Scientific Computing Seminar Yingda Cheng, Michigan State University L2 stable discontinuous Galerkin methods for one-dimensional two-way wave equations Simulating wave propagation is one of the fundamental problems in scientific computing. In this talk, we consider one-dimensional two-way wave equations, and investigate a family of L2 stable high order discontinuous Galerkin methods, which is defined through a general form of numerical fluxes. For these L2stable methods, we systematically establish stability, error estimates, and dispersion analysis.

Biomedical Engineering Seminar - "Visualizing and Quantifying Tissue Oxygen Tension with Porphyrin Toolkits and SMART Bandages

Thursday, March 05, 2015 9:00am - 10:00am

Conor Evans, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Dermatology Massachusetts Institute of Technology Oxygen plays a profound role in the biology of life. Impaired oxygen delivery has significant consequences, from ischemic injury and chronic wounds to therapeutically resistant carcinoma. A major challenge in assessing the oxygenation of tissues is the fact that oxygen itself is rather difficult to directly detect.
