Presenter Full Name
Alex Miller
Year & Semester
2019 Fall
Presentation Date
November 4, 2019

In this talk, Alex Miller will discuss how discoveries of the early 1900's completely revolutionized the way that theoretical physicists see the world around them. We will explore how theorists today put symmetry at the forefront, defining our theoretical systems primarily by the symmetries that govern them.
