President Wu: Let's Continue Our Century-old Heritage and Set a New Model

I would like to welcome all of you to the 100th Anniversary Celebration of National Taiwan Normal University. I would also like to thank the alumni and sister schools from all over the world for their warm greetings. Your presence and blessings have made this important day even more meaningful. On behalf of all students and faculty of NTNU, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to you all.

Detecting the size of primordial black holes with superhorizon perturbations

At the onset of the cosmic journey, the inflationary mechanism produced superhorizon curvature perturbations which affected the future formation of the universe. This study analyzed the growth of superhorizon curvature perturbations in the inflationary universe. Using a simple ultraslow-roll model, we derived the coherence function between any two points in the curvature perturbation. It showed that the causality limits the growth of the curvature perturbation, thereby constraining the important inflationary slow-roll parameters, allowing the universe to produce a large enough primordial black hole. Our research will help estimate how curvature perturbations form primordial black holes in the universe.

Current Exhibit of Restored Sculptures Showcases NTNU’s Dedication to Protecting Cultural Heritage

From September 2 to October 6, National Taiwan Normal University is showing “Restoration of Classic Sculptures,” an exhibit of 31 restored plaster replicas of classic Western sculptures. These plaster casts were purchased by NTNU from France more than 30 years ago; they are the only original copies with official copyrights licensed by the Louvre Museum. After two and half years of intensive collaborations and painstaking effort by faculty and students of the Fine Arts Department, the result of their labor is displayed to the general public in the basement level of NTNU’s Fine Arts Building.

Joint promotion of Taiwan Studies Initiative and Huayu BEST Program by President Wu and UCLA Chancellor

To deepen the cooperation between NTNU and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), President Cheng-Chih Wu led a delegation to our sister school in the United States on August 18th and met with the Chancellor Gene Block and several administrators and deans to further exchanged views on the Taiwan Huayu BEST Program partnership. Through this meeting, the friendship between the two universities was strengthened. The UCLA Asia Pacific Center also held a luncheon for the delegation and invited about 30 scholars and PhD students to join.
