School of Natural Sciences bag lunch discussion group
Next discussion: Friday, 3/16 at 12:30 in SE 300 -- Using Bohr's model to explain rotating Fluid polygons -- John Li and the Society of Physics Students
We are a bag lunch discussion group which meets every Friday from 12:30 to 1:30 in SE 300. Each week we have a different local speaker make an informal presentation on an ongoing research problem. The subject should be an open problem, rather than work that is ready to publish. The intention is to generate discussion between students, postdocs, and faculty in physics, chemistry, and applied math. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to present problems. If you would like to volunteer to present a problem, please contact Eric Brown at email@example.com.
