|YITP 50th Anniversary Symposium, Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Oct. 9 and 10th|
The foundation of the Institute for Theoretical Physics in 1966 under the guidance of Chen Ning Yang brought Stony Brook University to the world stage in science. In the succeeding decades, the Institute, in collaboration with the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and now with the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics has provided the opportunity for hundreds of researchers, students, postdocs, visitors and faculty to develop their knowledge and to create new ideas in a vibrant atmosphere of research and instruction.
The Institute is marking the anniversary with a symposium, Oct. 9 and 10 at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, bringing together its alumni and friends. As it enters its sixth decade, the C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics continues the historic tradition of frontier science at Stony Brook University.
The scientific program will conclude with a Sir Run Run Shaw Distinguished Lecture: What is String Theory? by Ashoke Sen.
