Corrine Elliott receives Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry from the American Chemical Society

Corrine Elliott was recognized as the American Chemical Society's Division of Organic Chemistry as the most outstanding, senior organic chemistry student at the University of Kentucky. Selection is based on aptitude for organic chemistry as evidenced by formal course work as well as research accomplishments during the course of their undergraduate studies, and lastly by a desire to pursue a career in chemistry.

Van Winter Memorial Lecture: Energy on the Edge (Rescheduled)

In many applications, e.g. photonic and quantum systems, one is interested in controlled localization of wave energy. Edge States are a type of localization along a line-defect or interface between media. We study edge states in honeycomb structures (such as graphene and its photonic analogues) and discuss their novel properties. In particular, we examine the formation of Topologically Protected Edge States, which persist and are stable against strong local distortions of the edge, and are therefore potential vehicles for robust energy-transfer in the presence of defects and random imperfections.

We further discuss rigorous results and conjectures for families of continuum PDE models (Schroedinger and Maxwell) admitting edge states which are topologically protected, edge states which are not protected, and states which remain localized near an edge for a very long time, but likely decay eventually.

Refreshments will be served in CP179 at 3:30pm.

Corrine Elliott recognized for research accomplishments with a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship

Corrine Elliott was awarded a 2016 Goldwater Scholarship.  The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman, including 30 years of service in the U.S. Senate.

Uk at the Half with Robert Cass

Robert Cass, a mathematics major and the Astronaut Scholarship winner, was the subject of last Saturday’s UK at the Half during the NJIT basketball game.

Dr. Yitang Zhang

The Hayden Howard Lecture Series was established in 2001 to bring renowned research mathematicians to the University of Kentucky. The lecture was established by a friend of UK’s Department of Mathematics and is named in honor of retired faculty members Thomas Hayden and Henry Howard.
