Della Pietra Lecture Series Presents Dr. Frank Wilczek, March 4 – 5, 2014

Public Talk Tuesday March 4 at 5:30pm, Simons Center Auditorium, room 103: Title: “Expanding the Doors of Perception” Abstract: Modern physics has taught us that our unaided senses perceive only an infinitesimal portion of physical reality. Within that theme, Frank Wilczek, PhD, a Nobel Laureate and professor of physics at MIT, will especially emphasize color […]
