Anecdotes of Computer-Aided Discovery:  Serendipity and/or By-design?
Abstract
In this lecture, Professor Zeng will share several short stories on the major scientific discoveries during his research career. These stories include (1) the serendipitous discovery of the first metal (gold) cage molecule in nature, (2) the incidental discovery of the first 2D ice in nature, (3) the discovery of the first 1D ice nanotube by design, (4) producing the first molecular-dynamics movie of nano-gold catalysis, and (5) producing a molecular-dynamics movie showing the “Lotus effect” at nanoscale. If time allows, he will briefly show 1 to 2 rising-stage research findings at CityU.
