PHYS 1905 - Einstein’s Legacy: physics in the 20th century…and beyond

3 Credit(s)

Requirement Designation: Physical/Life Science Exploration
Components: Lecture

Consideration of Einstein’s life and thought allows us to address some of humanity’s most persistent and profound concerns: the nature of space and time, the structure and evolution of the Universe, war and peace, the role of the individual in society. We will discuss Einstein’s great contributions to modern physics, as well as his role as a citizen-scientist on the world stage. We will conclude by examining the exciting implication of Einstein’s ideas for 21st century science, including black holes, gravitational wave astronomy, dark energy, and the origin of the Universe itself.
