Yesterday I gave a lecture at the 3rd International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics, which is going on in kolympari (Crete). I spoke critically about the five-sigma criterion that is nowadays the accepted standard in particle physics and astrophysics for discovery claims.
My slides, as usual, are quite heavily written, which is a nuisance if you are sitting at the conference trying to follow my speech, but it becomes an asset if you are reading them by yourself post-mortem. You can
On June 28, 1914, a deranged Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, resulting in the unprecedented mayhem of World War I. Globally, around 16 million people lost their lives, with Europe being utterly devastated. But it nearly didn’t happen. Seven months before he was murdered on the streets of Sarajevo, Franz Ferdinand came within inches of being killed in a hunting accident.

Researchers present an efficient design for a triple-junction organic tandem solar cell featuring a configuration of bandgap energies designed to maximize the tandem photocurrent output. The key innovation in this study is the demonstration of organic materials being able to mimic the record-setting efficiency of triple-junction structures in III-V solar cells. The team set out to determine a practical combination of bandgap energies for triple junctions to develop an efficient organic tandem […]
In CAI: Cable And Igor's Adventures in Matrix Factorization, Cable and I used the GoDec algorithm of Tianyi Zhou to play with several Youtube videos. There are all here. Kyle Kastner did a similar undertaking using Python and IPython. it is all here.Today, we have an even faster version of GoDecin GreBsmo as featured in Greedy Bilateral Sketch, Completion & Smoothing by Tianyi Zhou, Dacheng TaoRecovering a large low-rank matrix from highly corrupted, incomplete or sparse
