The FaculTea Series at the Waidner-Spahr Library
Emergence has come to mean that new and unpredicted things happen when parts coalesce and interact to form the whole. Historically seen as reductionist, physics has uncovered perhaps some of the starkest illustrations of emergence in recent times. Here Prof. English will introduce a few poignant examples that illustrate what physicists mean by emergence and briefly highlight connections to his own research.
A FaculTea is a brief, informal presentation about a faculty member's research. Audiences are general, and include students, faculty from all divisions, other college staff members, and visitors from the Carlisle community. FaculTeas are popular with faculty and students and provide a chance for the entire community to learn about the richness of research activity at the college outside the classroom setting. FaculTeas also provide a unique opportunity for faculty members to interact with college and Carlisle community members they may not otherwise meet.
