Dear AMO Journal Club Members,
So far we’ve had two great talks from Bharath and Chao. However, the format of the talks is a bit different from what we’ve been aiming for. This is a very different format from, say, a research talk where you present your own work. For example, there’s been a lot of coverage on the background material and general techniques, with less “drilling down” a specific paper. The ideal talk should aim to be something like 10 minutes long or so, but expect to be slowed down by questions. Also, I’d love to get the STUDENTS asking more questions. This is a format where it is OK to get “into the weeds” a bit. If the only thing you get from a paper is a technical detail, that’s fine! You’re more likely to use a technical detail in your own work anyway!
In an effort to “show” rather than “tell”, I will present this paper next Tuesday: https://www.nature.com/articles/nphys4297
