Some Frontiers of Physics

Six public lectures by Nobel and Templeton Laureate Frank Wilczek

Join us for a series of six high-level seminars about ongoing research on several important, far-reaching questions in physics!

Professor Wilczek will keep things as simple as possible, and much of the discussion should be accessible to upper-level undergraduates, but he will occasionally lean on more advanced material, for which references will be supplied.
