Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
What Have We Learned From Gravity?
Date: Tuesday, January 23rd
Time: 12:05 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (Refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Georgy Hrabovsky, UW Department of Physics
Abstract: Aristotle started the ball rolling. Our ideas about gravity have evolved ever since. We will take a whirlwind tour of how theories of gravity have changed as our mathematical technique, observations, theoretical sophistication, and society have changed. Far from being settled, this most obvious of natural forces is anything but well understood.
Host: Clint Sprott
