Kavli Foundation Keynote Plenary: From Quarks to the Cosmos




The APS April Meeting 2017 featured a keynote plenary session sponsored by the Kavli Foundation with three speakers on topics ranging from the smallest particles to the entire universe. (L to R): Barbara Jacak of the University of California Berkeley spoke on the properties of quark-gluon plasma created by heavy ion collisions; Cora Dvorkin of Harvard University covered the latest results in cosmology; and S. James Gates of the University of Maryland presented his results on supersymmetry and its mathematical connections to error-correction codes, card games, and music. This and the other plenary sessions can be viewed at the April Meeting page.
