Announcing a new Meetup for The Atlanta Science Tavern!

What: ATL SCI TAV: David Finkelstein (GA Tech) on Physics Sat 1/24 7 PM @ Manuel's

When: January 24, 2009 7:00 PM

Price: $2.00 per person

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Topic: Quantum Physics
Please join us on Saturday, January 24th, 7PM at Manuel's Tavern in the North Avenue Room to learn more about Quantum Physics from GA Tech's Professor Emeritus David Finkelstein. Dr. Finkelstein has a distinguished career and he will build upon Mike's prior lecture that introduced us to Quantum Physics. Learn more about him here:

About David Finkelstein
From his web page above:

"I work on reconciling the fundamental concepts and principles of quantum theory and space-time theory; the long-awaited conciliation of Einstein and Heisenberg. The procedure I am using now I call general quantization."

From a Wikipedia entry about him:


"David Ritz Finkelstein (born July 19, 1929, New York City) is currently an emeritus professor of physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Finkelstein obtained his Ph.D. in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1953. Later, from 1964 to 1976, he was professor of physics at Yeshiva University.

Much of Finkelstein's work concentrates on the relation between logic and physics, and quantum analogues of classical mathematical structures. In 1963 he proposed that anomalies of quantum mechanical measurement originate in anomalies of the logic that governs quantum mechanical systems. He proposed that dynamic systems are quantized by a fundamental space-time quantum dubbed a "chronon." This view was carried further by Hilary Putnam who argued that quantum logic was the correct logic that describes propositional reasoning generally. In a different direction, he has investigated ball lightning.

Finkelstein has also made contributions to general relativity. His mathematical work helped John Archibald Wheeler and other physicists accept the theoretical possibility of a black hole."

Resources to Learn More Before Attending
Some of the same links apply from last time. You can learn more about quantum behavior at these URLs before attending:

Brian Greene's PBS Nova special for his book The Elegant Universe contains some good visualizations about the differences between familiar everyday experience and the quantum world: http://www.pbs.org/wg...­
