SFB Colloquium

Sharon McGrayne (SFB 1245 Women's Week)
From Maria Goeppert Mayer to today, and what research suggests can be done

When my first book Nobel Prize Women in Science was published in 1993, the legal barriers against women in academic science seemed to be fading into the past. But now we realize that subtle barriers are also difficult to deal with. In my talk, I'll give some examples, past and present, and describe recent research on the subject. In particular, I will draw on what I've learned from the writing a book about the present situation for women in science with Dr. Rita Colwell, microbiologist, former director of the National Science Foundation, and Distinguished Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Johns Hopkins University.

George Bertsch (INT)
Shapes of Nuclei

Coexistence of different shapes is an old subject that advanced greatly in
some respects but not others. We now have a very good picture of the
potential energy surface in heavy nuclei but the interactions required
for shape dynamics are still not well characterized. It is worth recalling
the early studies on light nuclei which were rather successful in describing shape mixing. Perhaps a new approach in the spirit of the old calculations could explain phenomena that current theory does not model well.
