The Georgia Tech Physics Forum


Fall 2014

Welcome back! First off, I am happy to announce that Simon Berman will co-organize the Physics Forum this semester. We have seven sessions planned this semester and would like to thank everyone who is volunteering to give a talk. While the PF has typically been a venue for research talks, we would like to expand its horizons by encouraging presentations on all areas of physics (beyond research done in this department) as well as any creative ideas and problems in physics that you may have developed or encountered. The point of the Forum is in its name: it should be a place for the exchange of ideas. If you have something you want to talk about, please don't hesitate to talk to Simon or myself or send email. -msd

Restarting the Physics Forum

We are planning to restart the Forum this February: you should receive an email soon. While the format will be largely the same as it was last year, changes include:

  • Biweekly meetings rather than weekly
  • A posted schedule that will include links to related material (videos, papers, etc.)
  • Opening the Forum to undergraduates; hence, it is no longer the "Graduate Student Physics Forum"
Please refer to the schedule page for a list of upcoming talks (to be updated soon!). The resources page will contain links that are useful to physics students and is a work in progress. Finally, email Michael if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or would like to give a talk (email at the bottom of the page). -msd

New Website!

Welcome to the completely new Physics Forum website. If there are any problems with the website, please email me at msdim AT Furthermore, since it is a work in progress, I'd appreciate any content suggestion, especially useful stuff to add to the links/resources page. Thanks! - msd
