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.

The Race for Quantum Computing

Quantum computers are rapidly becoming commercially feasible and poised to revolutionize a number of technological fields. I will briefly summarize the history of quantum computing, current methods of construction, and what constitutes a quantum program. Three primary applications include machine learning, encryption & security, and chemistry. I will conclude by mentioning some business aspects of the field.
