  • Physics on the Edge of Sanity: From Quantum Mechanics to Black Holes to the Big Bang:

    "Big Bang"
    Understanding the cosmos is arguably the most profound endeavor in physics. It leads to questions about the nature of space and time, the origins of all matter and energy, the ultimate fate of the universe and grand coincidences associated with our presence in this world. Vatche Sahakian, Harvey Mudd College associate professor of physics, explores all these topics and the puzzles they lead to.

    This public lecture on ideas at the forefront of modern theoretical physics is aimed at a general audience. 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.
