However, the precise connection between particle indistinguishability and the symmetrization postulate has not been clearly established. For example, a widely influential topological approach to identical particles implies that their behavior depends on the dimensionality of space, and that they generically exhibit so-called anyonic behavior in two dimensions.

In this talk, we show that the symmetrization postulate can be derived on the basis of a simple novel postulate. The key to the derivation is a strictly informational treatment of indistinguishability which prohibits the labeling of particles that cannot be experimentally distinguished from one another. The derivation implies that the symmetrization postulate admits no natural variants. In particular, the possibility that identical particles generically exhibit anyonic behaviour is excluded.

To date, very little work has been done on semiclassical approximations of entanglement. We apply the WKB approximation to the Bell states and interpret the result.

Study on the interaction between DNA and anticancer drugs by atomic force microscopy

Jain Lab

Since the discovery of the anticancer activity of cisplatin, some platinum compounds have been clinically used as treatments for cancer. Cisplatin coordinates to DNA mainly through the N7 atoms of guanine or adenine because they do not form hydrogen bonds with any other DNA bases. It is generally believed that when cisplatin interacts with DNA, it not only inhibits replication and transcription mechanism of DNA, but also leads to apoptosis.

The structures of the DNA-cisplatin adducts have been studied by NMR and X-ray diffraction. However these methods focus on the average behavior of the investigated objects, but not at single molecular level. AH-197 is a potential chemotherapeutic agent modeled after cisplatin. There are a few studies that suggest AH-197 is a more efficient anticancer drug than cisplatin, however there are still many unknown aspects about high resolution structures of AH-197-DNA adducts. Atomic force microscopy(AFM) is a very useful technique to study biomolecules at the single molecule level. In this study, the interactions of tetrahymena DNA and metal compounds (cisplatin and AH-197) at different incubation time were investigated by AFM.

Total Variational Method for Analysis of Hyperspectral Imagery

Victoria ChayesHyperspectral imagery is a burgeoning domain in the field of remote sensing; special sensors capture reflectance values for images at hundreds of different wavelengths per pixel. To analyze and classify this data, we pioneered a total variational method from image processing and adapted it for hyperspectral data. Initial results show extreme promise for increase in accuracy over existing methods.

Can you go through the wall with the help of complex numbers?

Quantum Mechanics has shown many exotic phenomenon that cannot be demonstrated by classical physics and tunneling is one of them. It allows you to go through a wall or bounce back from a well with a certain probability if you are at a quantum scale (usually very small). But, is classical mechanics really dead when it comes to tunneling processes? In this talk I will demonstrate some progress in demonstrating tunneling phenomenon with complex numbers in classical mechanics. Furthermore, with the Feynman Path Integral, I will show another perspective of this relationship between complex classical mechanics and tunneling phenomenon.

Quantum Hall Effect in Hybrid GrapheneBard Nano LabBard CollegeMax Meynig & Maya Weingrod SandorGraphene is a two-dimensional carbon allotrope where the classical Hall effect exhibits a quantization of available electronic states in the material, leading to ballistic, zero resistance, conduction. This phenomenon is known as the quantum Hall effect (QHE) and requires strong magnetic fields and very low temperatures for its observation. We constructed samples of graphene on boron nitrite and observed their Quantum Hall effect at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
