Virtual Event

Sir Roger Penrose, the British scholar who won the 2020 Nobel Prize in physics, is set to give a talk over Zoom at noon Thursday, Sept. 2, titled, “Spinors, Space-Time, and Working with Wolfgang Rindler.” The Nobel laureate and the late UT Dallas physics professor enjoyed a 2-year collaboration writing, “Spinors and Space-Time,” published in 1984. It explores spinors, which are described as complex mathematical objects that don’t come back to themselves under 360-degree rotation but require 720 degrees. Spinors help reveal the behavior of ordinary matter, like electrons and protons, and are used to model a range of problems in theoretical physics, including relativity and spacetime.
