Title: Data-driven Risk-aware Adversarial Analysis under Uncertainty

We study stochastic sequential games with the players’ being risk averse. We focus on specific network interdiction applications and develop data-driven optimization approaches for analyzing related problems under uncertainty. The research covers both two-stage and multi-stage interdiction models, with emphasis on both modeling and solution methodology development.

The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
