Renowned physicist to speak at Nova Southeastern University

8:00 pm

As part of the University of Miami’s 2010 topical conference on elementary particles, astrophysics, and cosmology, sponsored by the Department of Physics in UM’s College of Arts and Sciences, Nova Southeastern University’s Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology will host a lecture by renowned physicist Pierre Ramond, on Saturday, December 18 at 8 p.m. on NSU’s main campus, in the college’s Don Taft University Center Performing and Visual Arts Wing Performance Theatre.

Ramond’s talk, titled “Mathematics, Physics, and the Large Hadronic Collider,” will explore the interplay between mathematics and physics. Guided by mathematical beauty, physicists have been led to a certain view of the elementary constituents of the universe and of space and time. This view will soon be either confirmed or revised by the experiments at the Large Hadronic Collider at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Ramond, a Distinguished Professor of Physics at the University of Florida, is a pioneer in the development of supersymmetry and string theory. He is the recipient of the 2004 Oskar Klein Medal, awarded by Stockholm University and the Nobel Committee of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences.
