He will share the prize with Clifford Will (PhD ’71) of the University of Florida. The award comes with $10,000, and Teukolsky will deliver a prize lecture at the next APS meeting in the spring of 2021.Teukolsky, who is also the Hans A. Bethe Professor of Physics and Astrophysics at Cornell University, is being given the award for his “outstanding contributions to observational tests of general relativity with theories of gravitational waves, astrophysical black holes and neutron stars,” according to the award citation. An expert in general relativity, relativistic astrophysics, and computational astrophysics, Teukolsky developed an important equation to describe black holes during his graduate work at Caltech, under his adviser Kip Thorne (BS ’62), Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus (incidentally, co-winner Clifford Will was also a student of Thorne’s at the same time).Teukolsky’s equation has been used in many applications, from the development of waveform models for gravitational-wave detectors to the study of gravity in higher dimensions. He has also studied timing models for binary pulsars, the properties of rapidly rotating neutron stars, the possibility of naked singularities, and relativistic star clusters.His major current interest is numerical relativity, and, in particular, solving Einstein’s relativity equations on large computers. One goal of this work is to improve the accuracy of predictions for gravitational-wave detectors like the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). In fact, research from Teukolsky’s group into gravitational waveforms was used in 2015 to compare theory to experiment in the first direct detection of gravitational waves by LIGO. Three key LIGO members, including Thorne, won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics for their contributions to the experiment.Teukolsky says he became fascinated by Einstein and his general theory of relativity while growing up in South Africa, but it was not until he studied with Thorne that he “finally understood what relativity was about.”He is a co-author of the widely used textbooks Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing and Black Holes, White Dwarfs and Neutron Stars: The Physics of Compact Objects. His honors include membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published.

Facebook Twitter Google+ INDIANAPOLIS — Tammi Reiss called most of Syracuse’s upperclassmen over to her during a practice in the preseason. The assistant coach asked them to write down their goals for the season on an index card. Some put down tangible expectations — win an Atlantic Coast Conference championship and advance to the Sweet 16 or Elite Eight for the first time in school history.Six months later, Reiss placed the cards on the players’ chairs in the Orange’s locker room before its matchup with Tennessee last weekend. No. 4 seed SU (29-7, 13-3 ACC) won that game by 22 and reached the Final Four, where it will face No. 7 seed Washington (26-10, 11-7 Pac-12) on Sunday night.“On most of the cards, they had Elite Eight and they had reached their goal and I just handed them out to them and said, ‘What’s next?’ They said, ‘Final Four,’” Reiss said. “It was the right time. … I’m like, ‘OK, you all did it, you’re here. What’s your next goal?’ and they all said out loud, ‘Final Four.’”Later that day Syracuse reached that goal too, and here’s a look back at what each player that filled out a goal card put down:Brianna Butler: “Oh my god that was so long ago. Make it to at least the Elite Eight. Minimum. Go to the ACC championship and it was beat whatever teams we lost to last year in the ACC I said to beat. Which we pretty much did it all except for the Notre Dame one.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It kind of sucks we didn’t get that one against Notre Dame. My card would have been completed but it’s really good to know that you were able to accomplish most of your goals. All except one.”Alexis Peterson: “To beat three Top 25 teams, to make it to the Elite Eight and to win the ACC championship.“We’ve done very well to this point and we’ve succeeded and exceeded all of our expectations that we’ve had for ourselves and what others had so I think it’s great that we’ve gotten to this point.”Briana Day: “Make it past the second round in the NCAA tournament. Go undefeated in conference. I believe I said win the ACC. Two of those goals didn’t happen but we definitely made it past the second round. We’re here at the Final Four.”Maggie Morrison: “My card was I wanted to get signature wins in the Top 25 and we did that. I wanted to make it past the Sweet 16. We did that. I wanted to win the ACC championship. Unfortunately, we fell short to Notre Dame, but we got there for the first time in program history so that was a big accomplishment. And then I said I just want to take it as far as we can. I want to play together. Play well. Get some wins.”Cornelia Fondren: “Cohesiveness, playing together and having fun.“We had our goals at the beginning of the season. Now it’s time to get the biggest goal, obviously to win the championship.”Taylor Ford: “I only had three things: play together as a team, win the ACC championship and go to the Elite Eight.”“I was laughing because I was like, ‘Oh wow, like we’re here.’ Also it said win the ACC championship, obviously we fell short of that. It was just crazy to think at the beginning of the season what my goal was and actually being there was an amazing feeling. But I didn’t want to suggest end at the Elite Eight. Obviously it didn’t, but it was crazy.”Isabella Slim: “It was funny because after we got them back, everyone was kind of the same. Mine was passing the NCAA second round and preferably going to the Elite Eight or even better. Then I wanted to, I don’t remember. I just remember laughing. Besides that, I wanted to win the ACC tournament, which didn’t happen, but I’m just really happy looking at it right now.Brittney Sykes: “I put that I wanted the team to have unity and understanding. I knew most of our upperclassmen that were in the room they were going to put goals of going to the Elite Eight and winning the ACC championship and I’m more of the little things. Yes, that would be great thinking in the beginning of going to the Elite Eight, but to get to those points you want to have unity, understanding.”Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman muttered “what does that mean?” while Sykes mentioned unity and understanding. Then he interrupted after Sykes finished her answer saying “Did you put down anything about making shots?”“Uh, no,” Sykes said, “but I mean that’s something you have to do.”“Just unity and understanding?” Hillsman said.“We’re here because of that,” Sykes replied.

Unified communications was a notable absent In Gartner’s top 10 strategic technologies for 2010. For years, the idea of a common platform for seemingly all communications seemed bewildering. Cisco CEO John Chambers said that even CIO’s were unsure what unified communications really meant. But now here it is raising its flag once again with predictions from ABI Research that the unified communications market will jump from $302 million in 2008 to $4.3 billion by 2014. Seems like a big jump? Not really if you compare it to what at least one other analyst group is predicting.Interestingly, the reason for the growth may be in part due to cloud computing, which not surprising is the number one technology on Gartner’s list for 2010.For years, unified communications has held promise as a product or suite of products that had a unifying user interface that, according to Wikipedia, would integrate real-time communication services “such as as instant messaging (chat); presence information; IP telephony; video conferencing; call control and speech recognition with non real-time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voicemail, e-mail, SMS and fax).”Over the years, camps divided as people grappled with the idea of how all these technologies come together. Cisco recently dumped the term “unified communications,” in favor of “Cisco Collaboration.” They are smart over at Cisco. Collaboration is definitely the new black. There’s not a lot new behind the curtain but collaboration has an edge to it that is getting the attention of the enterprise.But now comes along cloud computing and the vendors seem to be learning that perhaps unified communications should be treated as a service.Vendors like Cisco are teaming up with SaaS services like Salesforce.com and VOIP providers such as Skype. The potential proves to In-Stat that the market for unified communications will jump to $39 billion by 2013. It may be easy to poke fun a the hype around cloud computing these days. But there is actual proof that whatever you want to call it, cloud computing is playing a significant part in the growth of unified communications. Services that interconnect across devices and provide the capability for collaboration are emerging in a variety of flavors. More proof of what is to come? Aire-Spring represents a new breed of telecommunications companies. They are also one of the fastest growing operators. The comany has built an IP network from scratch. The company is processing 4 billion calls annually.Those are big numbers fitting for a market that is just about to burst.

Tata Motors-owned Jaguar said it has launched the XKR special edition luxury sedan in India, priced at Rs 1.27 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi).”New XKR special edition models are available to order now in both coupe and convertible form from July 2012… The special edition models introduce enhancements to the XK’s already luxurious hand-crafted cabin in addition to discreet exterior changes,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.The car is powered by a 5.0 litre direct-injection V8 petrol engine, it added.The company said the car is fitted with a six-speed automatic transmission that offers manual driver control via steering-wheel mounted paddles.In June, global sales of luxury brands from Jaguar Land Rover were at 28,215 units, up 39 per cent from the same month last year.While sales of luxury sedans of Jaguar brand decreased by 5 per cent last month at 3,829 units, Land Rover sales were up 49 per cent at 24,386 units. It may be noted here that Tata Motors-owned British luxury brands Jaguar and Land Rover (JLR), which opened its 15th dealership and the first in Pune on Saturday in association with Ace Perkins, is planning to expand its dealership network from 15 to 20, targeting tier-II cities like Bangalore, Surat and Aurangabad.
Laird has expanded its thermoelectric module (TEM) product family to protect critical electronic devices in emerging applications found in high temperature environments. This typically occurs in outdoor environments where heat generated from surrounding electronics exceeds the temperature of sensitive electronics with maximum operating temperatures of 60~70°C. The HiTemp ET Series delivers spot cooling to ensure maximum temperature of device is not exceeded in ambient environments greater than its maximum operating temperature.The HiTemp ET Series launch includes 53 models for engineers to choose from with a wide range of heat pumping capacities, geometric form factors and various input voltages to cover the wide range of applications Laird is gaining exposure to. Laird’s enhanced TEM construction prevents copper diffusion, which commonly occurs for standard grade TEMs in higher temperature environments and prevents degradation in their performance. The HiTemp construction also does not sacrifice performance for reliability like other high temperature modules on the market. The product series maintains a high coefficient of performance to allow for maximum heat rejection into air environment even with poor heat sinking.Many sensitive devices, such as lasers and CMOS sensors, are designed into autonomous systems for collision avoidance in vehicles and drones. Digital light processors) are used in 3-D machine vision, advanced lighting systems and projectors that may also require cooling in outdoor environments where ambient temperatures exceed its maximum operating temperature condition.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules Continue Reading Previous ADLINK partners with FFG for 5G- and ROS2-based factories of the futureNext MicroSys: smart control on ARM based industrial system-on-modules
Twitter/@Charlie_BurrisThe Texas Longhorns are in full meltdown mode. Following back-to-back awful losses due to special teams gaffes, the Longhorns are losing to TCU 50-7 late in the fourth quarter. During halftime, freshman cornerback Kris Boyd retweeted a message about transferring to Texas A&M, and now the Texas Rangers are jumping on the “Fire Charlie Strong” bandwagon. Or, at least one rogue social media manager is upset about the game, and was on the wrong Twitter account.Hey, what did I ever do to you @Rangers? pic.twitter.com/5OgWkUOVMi— Charlie Burris (@Charlie_Burris) October 3, 2015The tweet was deleted very quickly, but not before the internet captured it for all of eternity. There have been better college football Saturdays in Austin, that’s for sure.
