    "First Principles"
    In a few broad strokes, Vatche Sahakian, Harvey Mudd College associate professor of physics, will sketch out the basic axiomatic assumptions and outline a set of beliefs that guides the process of discovery in physics. He will talk about the three pillars of modern physics and the principles that unify the subject at a profound level.

    This public lecture is aimed at a general audience on ideas at the forefront of modern theoretical physics. We will talk about the philosophical underpinnings of modern physics; the fuzzy world as described by quantum mechanics; black holes and the skewing of space and time by motion and energy; the latest perspectives on cosmology and our universe, and the puzzles they lead us to; and finally we will touch upon new ideas from string theory and the frontiers of physics. Visual interactive simulations will be used in lieu of equations and mathematics. The target audience includes anyone with a high school education.
