What the Diversity of Nature Means to a Physicist
The wonderful diversity of the natural world, human society included, might imply an equally complex taxonomy of scientific approaches and theories. Yet, many phenomena hew to observable regularities that reappear in disparate systems. In this free talk, we will discuss physics models and concepts as a way of building quantitative bridges between natural phenomena and thus framing these regularities. In particular, we will discuss connections between the physics of magnets, political voting, collective behavior in biology, and armed conflict.

Who is speaking: Edward D. Lee, Ph.D

When it's taking place: June 6, 9:30 AM PST
