Making a Splash--Breaking a Neck, The Making of Complexity in Physical Systems
Speaker(s): Leo Kadanoff
Abstract: The fundamental laws of physics are very simple. The world about us is very complex. Living things are very complex indeed. This complexity has led some thinkers to suggest that living things are not the outcome of physical law but instead the creation of a designer. Here I examine how complexity is produced naturally in fluids.
