Physics Colloquium

March 28, 2024

Prof. Lars English will present “Exploring the interplay of geometry and nonlinearity through electrical lattices and networks”. Free pizza and everyone welcome to attend!

Abstract: Electronic circuits can be an ideal playground for exploring cutting-edge topics in condensed matter physics, particularly ones that combine themes of nonlinearity and geometry/topology. This talk will showcase student-faculty research projects (past, present and future) that illustrate this connection. We will see what can happen when we introduce nonlinearity into simple electrical lattices, or when we carefully design the geometry of lattices to feature flat bands. What happens when we build networks out of individual Wien-bridge oscillators? Finally, can we use networks of oscillators for fast, unconventional computation? Email for more information.
