Past Events

  • Elon Musk Public Lecture: "Will Evolution and Information Theory Provide the Fundamentals of Physics?"

    Meyerson Hall, B1 (210 S. 34th Street)

    Sylvester James Gates, Jr. (Brown)

    Join us for an evening with theoretical physicist Sylvester James Gates, Jr., as he talks about how the mathematical and theoretical aspects of his physics research have traversed concept spaces from equations to graphical imagery to coding theory error-correction, and how it points towards evidence that an evolution-like process may have acted on the mathematical laws that describe reality.

  • Math/Phys Joint Seminar: "Progress Toward A Mathematically Rigorous Space-time SUSY Representation Theory"

    David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4C2

    Sylvester James Gates, Jr. (Brown University)

    While a fundamental representation theory for compact Lie algebras was settled by the work of Cartan (i.e. weights and roots), no analogous conceptual structure exists for space-time supersymmetry algebras.  Progress in this direction based on the graph theory concept of "adinkras" will be presented in this talk.
