Project Update: Molecules in Extreme Environments
CAS Oslo fellows give an update on their work to push the boundaries of theoretical chemistry.
CAS Oslo fellows featured in 'Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics'
Scholars participating in the CAS project 'Molecules in Extreme Environments' publish their research on the 'superheavy' element Copernicium.
Former CAS project featured in 'Nature Ecology & Evolution'
Scholars from the 2015/16 project 'Climate Effects on Harvested Large Mammal Populations' publish their research on the Scandianvian brown bear in the prestigious scholarly journal.
CAS Oslo fellow wins ERC Consolidator Grant
Assistant Professor Andrew Teale, a participant in the project 'Molecules in Extreme Environments,' is recognized by the European Research Council as one of Europe's top scholars.
Trygve Ulf Helgaker: Chemistry and Quantum Leaps
Trygve Ulf Helgaker, professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Oslo, explains the science of quantum leaps in this CAS Oslo lunch seminar.
Researching Something That Does Not Exist
Extreme chemistry may sound exciting to work with, but for most of us it can be very hard to grasp what researchers in such fields are actually working on. This is especially true if they are looking into the composition and properties of elements that do not exist on Earth.
Dag O. Hessen: The Value of Nature
As part of Forskningsdagene 2017, CAS Oslo invited six current and former research fellows to give a 12-minute talk about science and values. In his talk, biologist Dag O. Hessen presents a range of ways to look at the value of nature.
Meet the Group Leaders: Trygve Ulf Helgaker
Chemistry normally deals with the predictable behaviour of matter – how atoms form molecules, and how the molecules react when introduced to one another. But how do those same molecules behave in unpredictable conditions? Trygve Ulf Helgaker, professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Oslo, is aiming to find out.
– Complex numbers make the world bigger
Their mathematics is already used outside the mathematical sphere, from calculating an asteroid’s position to measuring the size of an iceberg, but Berit Stensønes believes it is only the beginning of the developments and applications of these powerful tools.
Former CAS group leader wins the Fridtjof Nansen Award of Excellence
Former CAS group leader Professor Trond Helge Torsvik has been awarded this prestigious prize for his outstanding work in geophysics.
