    Archival documents from the Ukraine have only recently become available in Israel. These amazing documents (from the years 1880-1936) have enabled the preparation of pages of testimony for Yad Vashem – pages which serve as the sole memory for Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

    Rachel Karni has spent much time over the last three years researching the town that her mother came from. From the information gathered, she has been able to compile pages of testimony for people about whom almost nothing, except their names and the fact that they had been murdered, had been known previously.
    Rachel will speak about the results of her very interesting detective work. The methodology she employed can be replicated for other places.

    Originally from New Jersey, USA, Rachel lives in Merkaz Shapira and was, for many years, the head of the English Department at the Shafir Religious High School.

    The presentation will review two prospective analytic epidemiologic cohort studies of aging in which all participants are organ donors. It will summarize associations of risk factors for common chronic neurologic conditions of aging with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s dementia. It will then summarize the relation of different pathologies and resilience markers assessed at autopsy. Together this will highlight the complexity of neurodegenerative diseases. Next, it will illustrate how multi-level brain omic data can be mined to identify novel therapeutic targets. Finally, it will summarize a strategy to move these targets to a high throughput personalized medicine pipeline for compound screening.

    The macroscopic fluctuation theory gives an efficient hydrodynamic description for classical nonequilibrium diffusive systems. In this talk, we would cover how it can be applied and generalised in three directions:
    a. Towards a theory for open quantum diffusive systems, comparable to the macroscopic fluctuation theory.
    b. Defect formation as a system is (slowly) driven in time through a continuous phase transition can be described by a scaling theory - the Kibble-Zurek Mechanism. The macroscopic fluctuation theory allows to explore the exact evolution of defects for a large set of cases. Thus, we are in a position to go beyond the scaling arguments of the Kibble-Zurek Mechanism.
    c. The recently discovered thermodynamic uncertainty relations define a transport efficiency in thermal systems showing that the mean current, current fluctuations and dissipation are intimately linked. Here we will briefly show how this idea can be extended to (athermal) mesoscopic coherent processes.

    The rediscovery of the Archimedes Palimpsest in 1998 was a unique event: one of the most important authors of antiquity was read afresh, with many transformations made in the established text. Twenty years later, what have we learned from the Archimedes Palimpsest? What changed in our picture of the ancient history of mathematics?

    Reviel Netz is Pat Suppes Professor of Greek Mathematics and Astronomy at Stanford University. Besides editing the Archimedes Palimpsest, he has published many books and articles on the history of Greek mathematics and on other subjects. His most recent book, "Scale, Space and Canon in Ancient Literary Culture", is now forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.

    Refreshments will be served at 11:00am.
