Three lectures by Jun Ye: "Quantum matter and atomic clocks (Oct. 22) "; "Frequency Comb Spectroscopy – from mid-IR to XUV" (Oct. 23); "Cold molecules – a new playground for quantum and chemical physics" (Oct. 24).

This book is a collection of 57 very challenging math problems with detailed solutions. It is written for anyone who enjoys pondering difficult problems for great lengths of time. The problems are mostly classics...

Colloidal clusters consist of small numbers of colloidal particles bound by weak short-range attractions. The equilibrium probability of observing a cluster in a particular geometry is well described by a statistical mechanical model originally developed for molecules. To explain why this model fits experimental data so well...
