SMP 2/8/03 | The Arrow of Time in Physics | Speaker: Timothy McKay

Saturday, February 8, 2003
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Tim McKay, Associate Professor (U-M Physics)

Time in the world around us marches inexorably forward. Yet the laws of physics make little distinction between past and future. We will explore some solutions to this seeming contradiction. This is the second in a series of three lectures on time developed as part of the Rackham Summer Interdisciplinary Institute.*
*The first three Saturday Morning Physics talks in the Winter 2003 series were part of the Rackham Summer Interdisciplinary Institute's, Fourth Dimension. Two concerts, coupled with the lecture series, presented music reflecting on themes of time.

Detailed Information
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
