Departmental Seminar

The Beauty of Physics: Patterns, Principles, and Perspectives

Professor A. Ravi P. Rau
Louisiana State University
Thursday 6 August 2015 11am–12pm
RSPE Seminar Room

In a recent book with this title, I consider some overarching ideas and patterns that occur throughout physics, from classical to quantum and over various sub-fields of the subject. These ideas connect to those outside of physics so that non-physicists can also access some of their realizations, including sophisticated ones, in physics. I will discuss some of these topics such as: adding dimensions, states and transformations, stability at saddles, and the role of time in physics.
