Professor Zvi Bern presents "Do I have to draw you a diagram? A tale of quantum gravity"
The next Café KITP at SOhO, features Tim Hsieh. Join him over dinner and drinks as he wrestles with the mysterious nature of quantum entanglement and highlights its increasingly central role in future computers, new phases of matter, and the actual nature of spacetime itself. The event is on Wednesday, May 4, 2016, 6-7pm. Doors open at 5:00 pm.
Physicist Sabetta Matsumoto, a visiting scholar at UC Santa Barbara’s Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP), unpacked the math of curvature in easily understandable terms in her presentation "Purls of Wisdom". Her talk, part of the ongoing science series Café KITP, addressed the geometry and topology used in sewing garments and knitting clothes.
Professor Curt G. Callan presents "The Biological Future of Theoretical Physics"
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 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.
