## Symmetry – Magnetic Vs Electric Field

In this video, the difference of behaviour towards symmetries between electric and magnetic fields is explained. This leads to practical simplifications when dealing with highly symmetric charge distributions or curre...

## Bolzano Weierstrass theorem – Rising sun proof

Bolzano-Weierstrass is a fundamental theorem in analysis, stating that we can extract a convergent subsequence from any bounded sequence. It is proven in this lesson using a sun shining in the horizon. Speaker: El Ma...

## Trojan Message Vulnerabilities in Distributed Systems

This video summarises the results of the ASPLOS'14 paper "Finding Trojan Message Vulnerabilities in Distributed Systems", authored by Radu Banabic (speaker in the video), Prof. George Candea, and Prof. Rachid Guerraou...

## Dynamic Distributed Hash Tables

In this video, we discover dynamics in distributed hash tables, in particular, insertion and removing of a node. Speaker: Anne-Marie KERMARREC.

## Electric field of an infinite plane with Gauss theorem

With few calculations, we can compute the electric field thanks to symmetries and Gauss law, this is illustrated here where we avoid the calculation of the electric field with infinite integrals. Speaker: El Mahdi EL...

## Practice of Gauss flux theorem

Gauss theorem in electrostatics provides a direct link between the charge distribution inside a closed surface and the flux of the electric field across it. From a practical point of view, it offers an idirect but eas...

## Symmetry Principle in Physics

Symmetries are fundamental in Physics, from a practical point of view, they can help us reduce the calculations to do and focus on the understanding of the problem. Here is an example from electrostatics. Speaker: El...

## Computing in the presence of concurrent solo executions

Speaker: Julien STAINER

## Liveness Properties of Transactional Memory

This video summarizes the results of the PODC'12 paper "On the liveness of transactional memory", authored by Victor Bushkov (speaker in the video), Prof. Rachid Guerraoui, and Michał Kapałka at EPFL. Their paper pres...

## Everything you wanted to know about synchronization

This video summarizes the results of the SOSP'13 paper "Everything you always wanted to know about synchronization but were afraid to ask", authored by Tudor David, Prof. Rachid Guerraoui, and Vasileios Trigonakis (sp...
