Clifford Johnson Public Lecture

Clifford Johnson is a high energy physics professor at the University of Southern California and is releasing a non-fiction science graphic novel about the nature of the universe in the fall of 2017. More details about his upcoming talk will follow.    

20th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity

The Capra meetings have brough together relativists interested in the problem of radiation reaction in general relativity and its application to extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) as astrophysical sources of gravitational waves. This year’s meeting will be held June 19-23, 2017 at UNC.

Daniel Kleppner Colloquium

Prof. Daniel Kleppner from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and recipient of the 2017 APS Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research, will present a talk entitled “Three Seeds in the Flowering of Quantum Science,” April 10 at 2pm.

Has Kepler Found Aliens?

Prof. John Lattanzio, from the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University, Victoria, Australia, will give a colloquium about data from the Kepler spacecraft. Has Kepler Found Aliens? Abstract:  The Kepler spacecraft has revolutionized the search for exo-planets and provided … Continued

Large astronomical surveys and precision cosmology measurements have dramatically altered our view of the universe, including structure formation, matter, and fundamental interactions. Increasingly sensitive observations and measurements  will further illuminate the nature of matter and our universe.

Neutrinos are among the most abundant particles in the universe and may influence how the universe evolved. Increasingly precise measurements of neutrino oscillations have revealed that neutrinos have non-zero masses, telling us that our standard model of fundamental interactions is incomplete.

Theoretical physicists in the Institute seek to complete the description of subatomic interactions and, in addition, to unite the four fundamental forces—strong, electromagnetic, weak, and gravity.
