Lectures on History of Science – Lecture 20: Superconductivity: A Century of Exploration

Time:16 Sep 2022 19:20 – 20:55

Venue:West Lecture Hall

Speaker:Luo Huiqian


Superconductivity, as a macroscopic phenomenon of quantum condensation, is one of the cutting-edge basic research topics in condensed matter physics. It is of great importance for fields such as energy industry, scientific research, medical treatment and communication due to the “magic” properties superconductor shows, including zero resistance and complete diamagnetism. Numerous scientists have made prominent progress during a century of investigation into superconductivity, especially iron-based superconductors (FeSC) on the field of which China has achieved the world-leading level. Recently, it is believed that the mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity will be unveiled based on our understanding of FeSC, and leads us to the discovery of room-temp superconductivity. The application of superconductors will bring radical changes to the field of physics and human society.

      Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Tue. Unramified correspondance and virtual homology of mapping class groups

      Abstract:I shall discuss my recent work showing that the Bogomolov-Tschinkel universality conjecture holds if and only if the mapping class groups of a punctured surface is large (which is essentially the negation of the Ivanov conjecture about the mapping class groups). I will also discuss my recent work with O. Tosic regarding the closely related Putman-Wieland conjecture.Prizes and Distinct...

      Dowling-Wilson conjecture and equivariant compactification of the vector group

      Abstract:In the first part of the talk, I will give a survey of the proof of the Dowling-Wilson conjecture using the Schubert variety of a hyperplane arrangement. The Schubert variety of a hyperplane arrangement is an equivariant compactification of the vector group with finitely many orbits. In the second part of the talk, we will discuss a recent work of Colin Crowley characterizing Schubert...
