The Phase Problem and Related Computational Challenges

Event Sponsor: 
APS Colloquium
Start Date: 
Oct 3 2007 (All day)
Bldg. 402, APS Auditorium
Argonne National Laboratory
Veit Elser
Speaker(s) Title: 
Cornell University

This talk will address these questions indirectly. Listeners will get a 15-minute tutorial on writing their own high-performance phasing algorithm from scratch. The method is very general and lends itself to a great variety of applications, such as solving jigsaw puzzle on this poster. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the computational challenges facing the proposal of imaging single macromolecules wit ha pulsed, x-ray free-electron laser source.
