For years, physicists were unable to take advantage of the advancements in computer algebra. Most systems were simply not able to handle the specialized rules and operators, non-commutative variables, and complex notation used regularly in physics calculations, with the result that physicists continued to find it easier to work their problems with pencil and paper. Fortunately, the situation has changed, with new advancements being made all the time that make the complex calculations of physics easier and more reliable.
In this webinar, learn more about recent advancements in computational physics, and see how these techniques can be applied to problems from general relativity, classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and classical field theory. A recent project involving the digitization of the solutions to Einstein’s field equations shown in the book “Exact Solutions to Einstein’s Field Equations,” will also be presented.
A webinar discussing quantum devices which have potential for the development of a quantum memory, based on encoding a bit on a polarised line of electrons.

The Particle Tracing Module extends the functionality of the COMSOL Multiphysics modelling environment, to allow the computation of the trajectories of particles in fluids and charged particles electromagnetic fields. The particles can be subjected to a wide variety of forces, such as electrical, drag, and thermophoretic forces, as well as particle-particle and fluid-particle interactions. This webinar introduces particle tracing for applications such as erosion, etching, mixing, filtration, mass spectrometry, ion optics, and beam physics. The webinar includes a demonstration and will end with a Q&A session.

Phishing is serious business.

Join this webinar to learn:
· New phishing prevention techniques
· How to stop ransomware, malware and drive-by-exploits enabled by email phishing
· Updated security research findings
· Real-life case studies for using isolation techniques to prevent phishing attacks

Both Presidential candidates agree on the need for increased spending on our nation’s infrastructure. While we tend to think first of bridges, roads, and other physical features, cyber is also an area impossible to ignore given the pervasiveness of technology in our lives.
Without question, the speed, sophistication, and volume of cyber security attacks is constantly changing. In the case of nation states, the motives are also shifting from spying and surveillance to using offensive capabilities to attack critical infrastructure, national security assets, and even the political system itself. It’s no longer just about the money; safety and even lives may be at stake.
Adversaries are attacking us at an unmanageable scale. For instance, research sponsored by Department of Homeland Security and NSA showed environments with security event traffic of more than 1 billion alerts per day. Even after reducing the load to 1 million alerts per day with correlation and other tools, more than 20,000 human analysts would be needed to respond.
State-backed adversaries are using automation against us. It’s time we do the same, and projects like Integrated Adaptive Cyber Defense at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab are leading us there.
Join our webcast to learn how public and private organizations are progressing on the security automation continuum from simple security lifecycle management to predictive response strategies.
