In many real-world problems, a big scale gap can be observed between micro- and macroscopic scales of the problem because of the difference in mathematical (engineering, social, biological, physical, etc.) models and/or laws at different scales. The main objective of multiscale algorithms is to create a hierarchy of problems, each representing the original problem at different coarse scales with fewer degrees of freedom.
Cosmic alchemy in the era of gravitational wave astronomy The source of about half of the heaviest elements in the Universe has been a mystery for a long time. Although the general picture of element formation is well understood, many questions about the astrophysical details remain to be answered. Here I focus on recent advances in our understanding of the origin of the heaviest and rarest elements in the Universe.

In this talk, I want to show that the joint development of new materials, nanodevices and algorithms is essential for the development of smart and environmentally friendly chips, which inherently learn from their physics (1).
With the need for distance learning materials thrust upon us alarmingly and suddenly, it is not unreasonable that many have fallen back on passive presentation of lectures and black/whiteboard notes using some mode of video conferencing. But is it possible to maintain some element of active learning for our introductory physics students? My colleagues and I have attempted to adapt both the research-validated Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs) and RealTime Physics (RTP) for use in distance learning.
