‘Space-Time Versus the Quantum’
Joe Polchinski, Permanent Member at KITP and Professor of Physics at UCSB, shares his ideas about how to reconcile quantum mechanics and the theory of general relativity at this year's Faculty Research Lecture that will take place at 6 pm in Corwin Pavilion.
Three former Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) postdocs, Sean Hartnoll (Stanford University), Shinsei Ryu (University of Illinois), and Tadashi Takayanagi (Kyoto University), were among the recipients of the 2015 New Horizons Prize awarded by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation.
The purpose of the KITP Graduate Fellowship Program is to offer a unique opportunity for a select group of physics graduate students from institutions in the United States and beyond to spend 5-6 months at the KITP, to participate in KITP research programs and broaden their understanding of physics in areas of current research. For participation in the summer/fall term, nominations must be received by March 1, 2015.
We are now accepting applications for the third annual Santa Barbara Advanced School of Quantitative Biology Summer course, The Course of Cellular Evolution: A Laboratory Course on the Evolution of Cellular Function. The goal of the course is to explore, via open-ended research-grade experiments, some of the most exciting questions about the interplay between cell biology and evolution.
Three physics faculty, Lars Bildsten, KITP Director and Professor of Physics, David Morrison, Chair of the Math Department and Professor of Math and Physics, and Tony Zee, Professor of Physics, were recently designated as Fellows of the American Physical Society.
Arcavi, a joint postdoctoral scholar at KITP and the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network will now be able to search for additional evidence of the complete shredding of stars that happen to pass near the supermassive black holes at the centers of distant galaxies.
KITP program on "Deconstructing the Sense of Smell" brought together theoretical neuroscientists and experimental biologists to unravel the complex mechanisms that underlie the behavioral response to odors.
Together to discuss the chemical, molecular, cellular, circuit and systems mechanisms that underlie neural and behavioral responses to odor.
The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics seeks to appoint a Deputy Director, starting as early as September 1, 2016. The Deputy Director works closely with the Director in planning the Institute's 12 yearly research programs and plays a prominent role in outreach planning, computing, and in administering the Institute.
A group of astronomers - including Matteo Cantiello and Lars Bildsten from UC Santa Barbara’s Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) -has discovered that strong magnetic fields are very common in stars.
The next Café KITP at SOhO, features Elisabetta Matsumoto. Join her over dinner and drinks as she takes a sock’s eye view of geometry and topology and walks you through an evening of fun with fabric.
