PA3 First Friday Lunch
First Friday Lunch at the Nassau Club - April 6th, 2012
Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents. On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton. As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting. Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!
Theodor Brasoveanu, a graduate student in the Physics Department, will
discuss his research on critical phenomena in gravitational collapse, in
particular his studies of stars driven to the brink of black hole formation.
The framework is Einstein's famous theory of general relativity, which explains
how space and time are "curved" in the presence of matter. Given the
complexity of the equations governing gravitational systems, a lot of effort
goes into finding numerical solutions in order to decipher their message in the
most interesting cases. Theodor assured us that even the non-physicists among us will understand his talk!
Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required.
