Supported metal nanoparticle catalysts: predicting how size and support affect metal atom energetics and thus catalytic performance 
Speaker:  Charles T. Campbell (University of Washington, Chemistry Department, USA) 
Abstract:  Many important catalysts and electrocatalysts for energy and environmental technologies involve late transition metal nanoparticles dispersed across the surface of some support material. The activity and longterm stability of these materials depend sensitively on particle size below 5 nm, and, in this size range, upon the support material. The relationships between the energetic stability of late transition metal particles on oxide supports and their structural, electronic, chemisorption and catalytic properties have been examined in detail. We will show predictive correlations amongst the energy of the metal atoms in these nanoparticles (i.e., the metalatom chemical potential) and their particle size as well as the nature of the support surface. The strength with which they bond adsorbates, their catalytic kinetics and their sintering rates also correlate with this metalatom che

Abstract:  We show how the horizon fluff proposal works for 4d extreme Kerr. We start with constructing the `Extremal Kerr Phase Space' which are a 1function family of solutions to 4D vacuum Einstein equations diffeomorphic to the same extremal Kerr black hole. We show the symplectic structure of this phase space remains invariant under a U(1) KacMoody algebra which is generated by currents J_n and Virasoro generators L_n with central charge six times angular momentum of the black hole. This symplectic symmetry algebra is welldefined everywhere on the spacetime, near the horizon or in the asymptotic flat region. Out of appropriate combination of bJ_n charges, we construct another Virasoro algebra at the same central charge. Requiring that these two Virasoro algebras should describe the same system leads us to a proposal for identifying extreme Kerr BH microstates, dubbed extreme Kerr fluff. ...

YangBaxtermodels on Deformed AdSxS5 and Holographic Noncommutativity 
Speaker:  Shahin SheikhJabbari (IPM Teheran) 
Abstract:  YangBaxtermodel is a systematic way to generate integrable deformations of AdS5xS5. We recast the deformations as seen by open strings, where the metric is undeformed AdS5xS5 with constant string coupling, and all information about the deformation is encoded in the noncommutative (NC) parameter. We identify the deformations of AdS5 as twists of the conformal algebra, thus explaining the noncommutativity. We show that the unimodularity conditon on rmatrices for supergravity solutions translates into being divergencefree. Integrability of the model for unimodular rmatrices implies the existence and planar integrability of the dual NC gauge theory.
