Physics Colloquium

 DATE: 04-04-17

 TIME: 15:00

 PLACE: Nanotechnology institute building (#51) room 15

TITLE: 
Folding RNA: a confluence of biology, mathematics, and physics

SPEAKER: 
Anthony Zee, Kavli Institute of Physics, University of California at Santa Barbara

ABSTRACT/COMMENTS: 
I will describe a long-standing project to fold RNA using some topological aspects of matrix field theory in the large-N limit, in particular some recent work with Orland, Vernizzi, and others. The problem involves elements of biology, mathematics, and physics. The talk will be self-contained, aiming at an interdisciplinary audience. 
Refreshments are served at 14:45.
