UAB, 9 MAY 2018: Feynman Talks to celebrate the Feynman Year at Campus UAB

This year 2018 we celebrate the centenary of Richard P. Feynman, one of the greatests scientists of the XX century. The Campus UAB will host a cycle of Feynman Talks in different research centers. The first one, by Prof. David Kaiser, from MIT, will be at the Faculty of Science of UAB (Sala d'actes) on Wednesday, 9 May, 2018 at 12 pm.

Apr 26, 2018

The rest of the talks will be the following (see program here):

We would like to thank all the speakers and all the research centers that have made possible this cycle of talks. 

The organizers of the Feynman Year are the group EspaiNANO, from the Catalan Association of Scientific Communication (ACCC), which have created the website www.feynmantotal.cat, in which all the organized events can be found. The Feynam UAB Talks receive the collaboration of the ICMAB, the ICN2, the CEHIC, the UAB, the US Consulate in Barcelona, the ALBA Synchrotron, and the IMB-CNM.

David Kaiser is professor of the History of Science and Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, USA). He is author os several books, highlighting Drawing theories apart: the dispersion of Feynman diagrams in Postwar Physics(2005), in which he explains how the quantum theory of Feynman became popular, or How the hippies saved Physics: science, counterculture, and the quantum revival (2011), centered in the efforts by physicists to understand strange phenomenon such as quantum entanglement. Kaiser co-leads a research group on cosmology at MIT, and an international collaboration in which they study the bases of the quantum theory. Kaiser is member of the American Society of Physics and has received prestigious awards for teaching at MIT. His research has been published in journals such as Science, Nature, as well as The New York Times and The New Yorker, and in TV programs in NOVA TV,  National Public Radio and BBC.
