UND celebrates 100th anniversary of Theory of Relativity with lectures, door prizes
University of North Dakota
Physics and Astrophysics will offer a series of four lectures on the Theory of Relativity, commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the publication of the first testable prediction of the general theory by Albert Einstein in 1911.
The lectures are set for Tuesdays, 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., Oct. 4, 11, 18, and 25, in Room 100 of Leonard Hall. The format for each lecture is a formal one-hour presentation with a one-hour trailer, beginning at 9 p.m., for those that would like a more in-depth understanding of the mathematics in relativity.
William Schwalm and Tim Young, both of the physics department, will present on the "special and general theory of relativity," a modern of view of how objects move in the universe through curved space-time.
Three door prizes per lecture will be picked at random.
