This project will involve the mechanical and electrical development of neural interfaces, their surgical implantation and testing. John Williams Project Title: Cryptocurrency Mining: a sustainable approach Project Description: A major criticism of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is their massive waste of energy used in performing the mining that secures the transactions. We are interested in developing an online experiment to examine the effects of network topology, social influence, repeated interactions, and reputation, on the emergence of collective intelligence. In this project, the student will collaborate closely with the student advisor to fabricate tools needed to test the devices and conduct tests in the cleanroom. John Williams Project Title: New Applications of Ai in Numerical Simulation: Matrix Inversion Project Description: Deep learning and other machine learning techniques have begun making real world impacts on everyday life, from translation in real-time to facial recognition. For the diabetes, we are interested in continuing to develop our insulin sensors to determine and tune its sensitivity and specificity as we transition the validation of the sensor into in vitro and in vivo. Addition of angular momentum: Clebsch-Gordan series and coefficients, spin systems, and allotropic forms of hydrogen.
Really would love to have you in our group! Issues of international trade policy have gained increased attention, but cybersecurity has not been a key issue for trade policy until recently. Non-invasive sensors have been developed to provide a control system, but none are highly sensitive. To apply, please send an informal email describing your skills computational, laboratory, other things you consider relevant , goals, and informal references if available. The investigation of the impact of this active shape control mechanism in the flow patterns and net forces constitutes the main goal of this project. What are the potential challenges facing musicians and their fans, and what possibilities exist for countering them, as well as for uncovering new growth opportunities to create, build and expand communities? Prerequisites: This project would be of interest to any student interested in history, political science, literature, nonfiction writing, or media studies.
Second, we will conduct logistic regressions to estimate the relationship between completed evictions and move out agreements, on the one hand, and characteristics of the building, the landlord, the eviction filing and the procedural history to better understand who is most vulnerable to displacement as a result of an eviction filing. Research experiences related to system dynamics or data analysis would be a plus. Knowledge of hindi and ability to translate is a plus but not a must. Concepts and basic techniques are developed through applications in elementary particle physics, and condensed matter physics. Additional information can be found on the Communication Requirement website. Student's specific project will be tailored to the student's particular interest, research needs of our lab, and student's previous experience.
There is also opportunity to work on the design human design tool , and help integrate these tools into a projection mapping table so that they can be viewed in a more immersive environment. Our research aims to engage communities of color in activities they normally may feel excluded from by utilizing cultural artifacts. We are looking for someone, ideally, who has prior skills and experience across the stack described above. Please note - ability to invest at least 6-9 hours a week is a must. Data visualization, project management and data organization skills will be an added advantage. The last third of the term is reserved for collaborative research projects on topics such as the Global Positioning System, solar system tests of relativity, descending into a black hole, gravitational lensing, gravitational waves, Gravity Probe B, and more advanced models of the cosmos. This research project seeks to document and analyze their experiences.
Students research and write a paper on a topic related to the content of and. Some of this work will involve an extensive literature review in support of a policy-oriented paper I am developing. The project is open-source; code, documentation, and issues we plan to address are available via. Because we want to make you integral part of the project, we are looking for longer-term commitments with at least one day per week during Fall and Spring. Students will join the activities outlined above, depending on their interests and background. At its core, the Internet is based on voluntary agreements on standards for communication, e. .
The swimming requirement can be satisfied by taking a beginning swim class or by passing the swim test during orientation week in the fall. Time-independent approximation methods: degenerate and nondegenerate perturbation theory, variational method, Born-Oppenheimer approximation, applications to atomic and molecular systems. Prerequisites: Some experience with, or interest in, GitHub, Jupyter notebooks, and Julia. Current results in relativistic heavy ion physics and hadronic physics. Space Enabled uses six research methods to apply space technology to development, including art, design, social science, complex systems modeling, satellite engineering and data science. General purpose programs can be written which allow users explore these graphs and gain insights into their data.
To gather initial data for this research we will first scrape available data from the MassCourts website, to obtain a count of eviction filings, party names, property addresses, etc. Wellesley Students are welcome and encouraged to apply. Experience with creating mock-ups or user-interface design is another advantage. Understanding the environment contexts is helpful to predict pedestrian accurately. The quantum theory of radiation.
Prerequisites: We seek motivated students with strong interests in the interdisciplinary practice of microelectronic devices, circuits, and machine learning. Interacting systems: cluster expansions, van der Waal's gas, and mean-field theory. Candidates are expected to possess excellent programming skills e. Diverse viewpoints make teams stronger. Subject is offered for students who have had little exposure to physics with calculus in high school; it covers the same material as , but is taught over a longer interval that begins in the fall and continues through the end of January. The ultimate goal, however, would be to extract a spectrum for the planetary atmosphere across the 400-700nm wavelength range.
Electromagnetic waves, emission, absorption, and scattering of radiation. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the tasks. Topics: periodic structure and symmetry of crystals; diffraction; reciprocal lattice; chemical bonding; lattice dynamics, phonons, thermal properties; free electron gas; model of metals; Bloch theorem and band structure, nearly free electron approximation; tight binding method; Fermi surface; semiconductors, electrons, holes, impurities; optical properties, excitons; and magnetism. In addition to being a very hands-on project, with potential groundbreaking applications in computing, this work presents promising perspectives in application-oriented computing: if fully successful, our approach would enable a routing and delivering company like Amazon to reduce its carbon footprint by several orders of magnitude, or biochemists working on protein folding to decrease their simulation time from several hours today to less than a second and thus facilitate breakthrough discoveries in bioengineering and drug development. We are currently interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the reversibility of the quiescent state and how this state is distinct from terminal differentiation—why a hepatocyte has the ability to divide again while a cardiomyocyte or neuron cannot.
Ideally the work will eventually lead to a publication but is not a requirement. Once a simulator has been created it needs to be tested in different physical use cases so that its results can be validated and the simulator's limits pushed. Igor Kadota is the direct supervisor for this project. Before registering for this subject, students must have an employment offer from a company or organization and must identify a Physics supervisor. Physical education courses are offered in two six-week quarters during the fall term and during the spring term. Prerequisites: Strong Python skills with evidence of independent problem solving and algorithm development.
