Physics/Fields Colloquium

The goal of the Physics/Fields Colloquium is to feature scientists whose work is of interest to both the physics and the mathematical science community. The series has been running since the Spring of 2007.   Usually there is one speaker per semester. Each speaker gives a primary, general talk in the regular physics colloquium venue and, whenever possible, a second, more specialised talk at the Fields Institute.

This seminar takes place Wednesdays at 3:10pm at the Fields Institute AND Thursdays at 4:10pm in MP 102
