As part of the Mathematics Colloquium Series, Diego Castano, Ph.D., associate professor in the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, will present “A Very Brief Introduction to Supersymmetry” on Wednesday, November 17, from noon to 1:00 p.m., in the Mailman-Hollywood Building, room 311.
Modern physics seeks to identify the universe’s full complement of symmetries. Among these is the hypothesized symmetry between particles of differing spin, or so-called supersymmetry. In this lecture, Castano will present some of the mathematics behind these ideas.
The Mathematics Colloquium Series, hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology, aims to increase awareness of mathematics’ importance and applications in daily life. The series also gives mathematics faculty members and students the opportunity to discuss independent research and share their passion for the subject.
