Alberta Rose Theatre

Special Science on Tap at the Alberta Rose Theatre!

Featuring author and mad chemist, Theodore Gray

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Time: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m.

Location: Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta Street, Portland, Ore.

Cost: $12 advance tickets - OR - $40 for one ticket and a signed copy of the book Molecules: The Elements and the Architecture of Everything

· $15 tickets on the day of the event

· Books will also be available for purchase at the event for $30

Food & Drink: Beer, wine, popcorn, Pacific Pie Company’s hand pies, and an assortment of snacks available.

Everything physical is made up of the elements and the infinite variety of molecules they form when they combine with each other. The new book Molecules: The Elements and the Architecture of Everything explores hundreds of the most interesting, unusual, and surprising chemical bonds, from rocks to ropes, and painkillers to pigments. At this special Science on Tap, Theodore Gray, author, and co-founder of Wolfram Research, Inc.., will tell fascinating stories, show stunning photography, and have live on-stage demonstrations in this exploration of some of the most interesting, essential, useful, and beautiful chemical structures that make up every material in the world.

Molecules is the long-awaited sequel to Theodore Gray’s bestselling book The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe. Theodore is also the author of Gray Matter, a long-running Popular Science column, where he chronicled lots experiments, including several where he set himself and other things on fire.

Science on Tap is produced by Via Productions, LLC.

Public Lecture at Reed: "Emergence of Ordered Patterns in Physical, Chemical, and Biological Systems"
Reed College (Vollum Lecture Hall)

The Division of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Reed College invites you to a public lecture by Prof. Harry L. Swinney, Sid Richardson Foundation Regents Chair of Physics and Director of the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics at the University of Texas at Austin. Prof. Swinney is one of the pioneering figures in the study of chaos theory and his lab has played a leading role in the study of nonlinear dynamics over the past 40 years. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and his work has been recognized with numerous awards, including the Moser Prize, the Richardson Medal, and the Boltzmann Medal.

From spatial patterns like the stripes on a zebra to temporal patterns like the rhythmic beating of the heart, patterns are ubiquitous in nature. Understanding how these patterns emerge is one of science’s most enduring mysteries. In this lecture, aimed at a general audience, Prof. Swinney will discuss how ordered patterns emerge as systems are driven away from thermodynamic equilibrium. While no general theory of pattern formation currently exists, new analysis techniques, experiments, and computational methods can provide general insights into pattern formation in a diversity of physical, chemical, and biological systems.
