Non-equilibrium Information and Capacity Envelopes: Towards a Unified Information and Queueing Theory
ID: 306644
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2017-11-30
Dating back sixty years to the seminal works by Shannon, information theory is a cornerstone of communications. Amongst others, it's significance stems from the decoupling of data compression and transmission as accomplished by the celebrated source and channel coding theorem...

Hydrodynamical Simulations of Galaxy Formation at the Peta- and Exascale
ID: 308037
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-07-31
Numerical simulations of galaxy formation provide a powerful technique for calculating the non-linear evolution of cosmic structure formation. In fact, they have played an instrumental role in establishing the current standard cosmological model known as LCDM. However, unlock...

Probing General Relativity with Stellar Orbits
ID: 306311
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Of the four fundamental forces in nature, gravity is the least tested one. A uniquely accessible laboratory for gravitational physics is the Galactic Center, hosting the closest massive black hole with 4 million solar masses. Its vicinity and the advent of high-resolution, ne...

Quantifying aerosol-cloud-climate effects by regime
ID: 306284
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Global climate change is widely considered one of the main concerns of humankind. However, predictions are highly uncertain, with no substantial improvement since more than three decades. They are hampered by the huge uncertainty of climate forcing, which is dominated by the ...

Sublinear algorithms for the analysis of very large graphs
ID: 307696
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
Large graphs appear in many application areas. Typical examples are the webgraph, the internet graph, friendship graphs of social networks like facebook or Google+, citation graphs, collaboration graphs, and transportation networks. The structure of these graphs contains valu...

Cosmic Dawn – The Emergence of Black Holes and Galaxies 
in the Universe
ID: 307930
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Studying quasars (actively accreting supermassive black holes) and galaxies at the earliest cosmic epochs is one of the prime objectives in modern astrophysics. How the first luminous sources formed and reionized the universe is one of the most fundamental open questions in c...

Attosecond tracing of collective dynamics 
in clusters and nanoparticles
ID: 307203
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Collective electron motion can unfold on attosecond time scales in nanoplasmonic systems, as defined by the inverse spectral bandwidth of the plasmonic resonant region. Similarly, in dielectrics or semiconductors, the laser-driven collective motion of electrons can occur on t...
