BSA Distinguished Lecture

"Superstring/M-theory: A Lathe for Physics?"

Presented by Sylvester Gates, Univ. of Maryland

Monday, January 24, 2005, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

Physicists are fascinated with Superstring/M-theory because of its reach, but frustrated because of its mathematical difficulty. Gates, a pioneer in the development of the theory, sees it as a 21st century lathe – a machine capable of remarkable precision and versatility, but requiring a skilled and experienced operator for its success. In his lecture, Gates will discuss the mind-bending concepts behind the theory, as well as the astonishing successes it has achieved thus far.
