Dr Ling Lin: Symmetries in Physics
Balliol Online Lecture

Tue, 13 Jun, 2023 17:00 - 18:30

You are warmly invited to join Dr Ling Lin, Walker Early Career Fellow in Mathematical Physics, for his Balliol Online Lecture, Symmetries in Physics.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the single most important concept in our modern understanding of physics is that of symmetries. Whether in Newtonian mechanics, Einstein’s relativistic theories, or modern quantum field theory, symmetry principles are the essential ingredient to facilitate descriptive and predictive models of “nature”. This talk will explore the basic ideas of symmetries and their unreasonable effectiveness in theoretical physics.

Dr Ling Lin is a Walker Early Career Fellow in Mathematical Physics at Balliol College. His core subject area is theoretical high energy physics, with research interests including the interplay between physics and geometry in string theory, and symmetry principles in quantum field theory and quantum gravity.
