Morphing Locally and Globally Structures with Multiscale Intelligence by Mimicking Nature
ID: 308261
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The objective of the proposed research is to engineer novel multifunctional morphing materials drawing inspiration from biological systems that are known to possess distributed sensing capabilities which in turn guide their local and global morphing. This will be achieved thr...

Polariton condensates: from fundamental physics to quantum based devices
ID: 308136
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Polaritons are quantum superpositions of light and matter which combine appealing properties of both: the high coherence of photons and the strong interaction (non-linearities) of electrons. With the report of their Bose-Einstein condensation in 2006, they stand as one of the...

New directions in Bayesian Nonparametrics
ID: 306406
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
The popularity of Bayesian nonparametric (BNP) inference is rapidly growing within both the academic community and practitioners. Indeed the BNP viewpoint naturally allows for rich and flexible probabilistic modeling and, via conditional (or posterior) distributions, for accu...

Inclusions in diamonds: messengers from the deep Earth
ID: 307322
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Diamonds and their inclusions are the deepest materials originating from the Earth’s interior reaching the surface of our planet. Their study plays a key role in understanding and interpreting the geodynamics, geophysics, petrology, geochemistry and mineralogy of the Earth’s ...

Challenging General Relativity
[PROJECT] CGR2011TPS - Challenging General Relativity
ID: 306425
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2018-01-31
General relativity, Einstein's celebrated theory, has been very successful as a theory of the gravitational interaction. However, within the course of the last decades several issues have been pointed out as indicating its limitations: the inevitable existence of spacetime si...

Bridging the gap between Gas Emissions and geophysical observations at active volcanoes
ID: 305377
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
In spite of their significance in a variety of volcanological aspects, gas observations at volcanoes have lagged behind geophysical studies for a long time. This has primarily reflected the inherent technical limitations met by gas geochemists in capturing volcanic gas proper...

Small ribonucleic acids in silico
[PROJECT] S-RNA-S - Small ribonucleic acids in silico
ID: 306662
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is acquiring a larger importance in cell biology, as more functions that it accomplishes are discovered. In particular, as it has emerged in the last decade, it has a crucial role in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. The comprehens...

The first stars and galaxies
[PROJECT] FIRST - The first stars and galaxies
ID: 306476
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
The FIRST proposal has the goal of investigating the nature and properties of the first stars and galaxies. The project will exploit synergies between observational cosmology, galaxy formation and stellar evolution. Observations made using large ground-based and space-borne t...

The Structure of the Extra Dimensions of String Theory
ID: 307286
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2017-08-31
String theory predicts the existence of several spatial dimensions in addition to the three of our everyday experience. The space spanned by these dimensions might be small enough to have escaped detection so far. The aim of this project is to characterize which spaces are al...

Stability and wall-crossing in algebraic and differential geometry
ID: 307119
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
"This proposal centers on the special interaction of algebraic and differential geometry which arises from the notion of stability, going back to the celebrated correspondence between polystable vector bundles and Hermite-Einstein connections. A conjecture of Yau, Tian and Do...
