Slippery Waves: Brilliance Brings Blind Spots
Speaker(s): Leo Kadanoff
Abstract: Superfluidity and superconductivity are two remarkable phenomena in which, at low temperatures, materials abruptly gain the ability to flow without friction. Microscopic quantum theories of these phases of matter were constructed in blockbuster papers of Lev Landau (1940) and John Bardeen, ... read more

Is the renormalization Group Really that Ugly?
Speaker(s): Leo Kadanoff
Abstract: In 1665, the clockmaker Christiaan Huygens noticed that two pendulum clocks hanging on a wall tend to synchronize the motion of their pendulums. A similar scenario occurs with two metronomes placed on a piano: they interact through vibrations in the wood and will eventually coordinate their motion. ... read more

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... read more
