Public Talk: Expanding the Doors of Perception

Abstract: Modern physics has taught us that our unaided senses perceive only an infinitesimal portion of physical reality. Within that theme, Frank Wilczek will especially emphasize color vision. The title is inspired by William Blake: If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.

Faculty and Graduate Student Colloquium:
Majorana Neutrinos, Electrons, and Neutrons (Neuterons)

Abstract: In a famous paper of 1937, Ettore Majorana suggested an equation to describe spin 1/2 particles that are their own antiparticles. The question, whether neutrinos obey that equation, is a major issue in contemporary particle physics. This will be explored in a much broader context, showing that under certain circumstances electrons and neutrons behave as Majorana particles, that the concept applies also to scalar particles, and in general that "Majorananess" is not a binary predicate, but a quantitative property, which can be large or small.
