Reading Physics in LA

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009


A newly rebooted monthly reading and discussion group, based around books that straddle the line between the popular and scientific. Roger Penrose, Stephen Hawking, Richard Feynman – Let’s read them in depth and discuss.

About this next meeting, Group Organizer Bill Cunningham says:

“I’ve had a couple of requests for books dealing with string theory. We haven’t really dived into this yet except for Lee Smolin’s book, which was more a critique than an explanation, so I’m thinking we should pick up Brian Greene’s popular overview:

The Elegant Universe – by Brian Greene

I’m working out a couple of ideas about how to organize the discussion in some fun ways, so I will post more details as they get settled.”

If you’d like to join in on the discussion this month, please RSVP via the group’s site, here.
