Joint Math/Physics Seminar
The joint math/physics seminar meets Monday 12:3013:45 in LGRT 419B with speakers alternating between math and physics. For questions contact Franz Pedit (pedit@math.umass.edu). The overall motto for the seminar is best summarized by Galileo Galilei:
Philosophy is written in that gigantic book which is perpetually open in front of our eyes (I allude to the universe), but no one can understand it who does not strive beforehand to learn the language and recognize the letters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and its letters are geometrical figures, and without these means it is humanly impossible to understand any of it; without them, all we can do is to wander aimlessly in an obscure labyrinth.
