Physics Seminar: New Physics All Around Us [Academics]
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM @ Harvey Ingham\, Room 102 ?New Physics All Around Us We have all heard about the search for the Higgs boson at the LHC in Geneva, Switzerland, and of the mystery of dark matter and energy. While these glimpses of potentially "new physics" are deep and exciting, they are also very remote from our daily experience. In my talk, I will introduce you to much more familiar but no less fascinating manifestations of "new physics", namely, complexity and emergence. Examples will include bird flight, the kitchen sink, and the connectivity of your brain. About the speaker Professor Beate Schmittmann earned a diploma (M.S.) in physics from RWTH Aachen University, Germany (1981) and a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland (1984). From 1984-1990, she worked at the University of Duesseldorf (Germany) as a postdoctoral associate and research assistant professor. Prior to joining Iowa State as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Schmittmann was a member of the physics faculty at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, since 1991 and department chair since 2006. As a leader of Virginia Tech’s ADVANCE program, she was instrumental in effecting policy and climate change for all faculty, and especially for women in science and engineering. Schmittmann is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a winner of the 2010 Jesse W. Beams Research Award. Her research interests focus on statistical and biological physics. She has authored or co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed articles and one book, “Statistical Mechanics of Driven Diffusive Systems”. Professor Schmittmann will be available to talk with students after the lecture from 4:30 pm to 5:20 pm in Harvey Ingham Room 33.
