Underwritten by:
Varnum, Riddering, Schmidt & Howlett, LLP

This lecture is unavailable for rebroadcast.

Brian Greene is a physicist working on the unified theory of super strings. His recent book, The Elegant Universe, has received wide critical acclaim and has been on the New York Times best-seller list for almost a year. He is known not only for his ground-breaking discoveries in this field but also for his skill in explaining cutting-edge research. Dr. Greene is Professor of Mathematics and Physics at Columbia University. As a speaker, Greene succeeds in making the most sophisticated concepts in theoretical physics both accessible and entertaining not only to scholars but also to audiences with no scientific background. Artful metaphors and humorous analogies will make super strings understandable to The January Series audience.
