Office: 1006 Evans Hall Email: ksjames[at]math[dot]berkeley[dot]edu I am a third-year graduate student at UC-Berkeley, working in mathematical physics. My advisor is Nicolai Reshetikhin. I m broadly interested in statistical mechanics. I focus on quantum many body systems, sampling methods and on applying some of the ideas of statistical mechanics to other fields. I passed my qualifying exam in April 2014.

CCRG affiliates span a wide range of disciplines including mathematics, cryptography, economics, and law. The goal of the CCRG is to understand decentralized consensus technology, its application and potential impact on the world, and to promulgate that understanding to the research community and to the public. Why is the CCRG being formed Decentralized consensus technologies provide, for the first time, a way for one Internet user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe, secure, public, and irrefutable. If adopted, these technologies could fundamentally transform how the world operates, introducing a range of efficiencies to commerce, finance, law, and insurance, and enabling the creation of the next generation of the World WideThe price of bitcoin has crashed to below US$290, its lowest since November 2013, and far below its all-time-high of US$1,242 later that same month. For about three hours the price sat below US$300. This The Bitcoin craze has hit Iceland, where an entrepreneur has set up his own cryptocurrency and announced plans to give every citizen a handful for free. Baldur Odinsson says he is setting up a new cryptocurrencyBitcoin is a digital currency and payment platform that has been the source of much media attention. The currency is not backed by a government like most conventional currencies but is part of a democratic and dencentralized movement. Bitcoin transactions are pseudo-anonymous in a similar way to cash money. Why do people use this currency? How do their political values align with their usage of bitcoin? Furthermore, how does the community regulate itself in the absence of a formal hierarchical structure? Lastly, how do anonymous users formJuniper investigates the development of the ecosystems that have evolved around cryptocurrencies, including the emergence of services targeting niches ranging from derivatives trading to online gambling.
