BOSTON UNIVERSITY HOSTS NOBEL LAUREATE MURRAY GELL-MANN FOR FUTURISTIC "BIG PICTURE" LECTURE
Eminent physicist visiting professor of future studies at BU’s Pardee Center think tank
(Boston) — Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future will present Murray Gell-Mann, the 1969 Nobel physics laureate, in a lecture titled “Looking Into The Future: The Big Picture” on April 11 at the BU School of Management auditorium.
Gell-Mann, the 2004/2005 visiting Professor of Future Studies at the Pardee Center, is a distinguished fellow at the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico, where he lives, and the author of “The Quark and the Jaguar: Adventures in the Simple and the Complex.” An emeritus professor of theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology, where he taught from 1955 to 1993, he received the Nobel Prize for his work in elementary particle theory that identified quarks as the atom’s most fundamental particles.
Free and open to the public, the 6 p.m. lecture will be followed by a brief reception outside the lecture hall. For more on the Frederick S. Pardee Center, see http://www.bu.edu/pardee/.
