The next lecture in the Boeing Colloquium series will be delivered by Professor Tadashi Tokieda (Stanford) next Thursday, April 21 at 4:00 PM in Smith Hall 205.

This promises to be a highly entertaining talk, by an interesting and engaging speaker. 

Title: Toy Models

Abstract: Would you like to come see some toys? ‘Toys’ here have a special sense: objects of daily life which you can find or make in minutes, yet which, if played with imaginatively, reveal surprises that keep scientists puzzling for a while. We will see table-top demos of many such toys and visit some of the unusual physics and mathematics that they open up.  The theme that emerges is singularity.

Note that Professor Tokieda is also presenting the Math Across Campus talk on Friday 4/22 in PAA110.
