Mirror Matter in the Universe

SectionMeeting timeCRNSession
031 Mondays 4:40PM-5:30PM 46314Full

Seminar for intellectually curious freshman students who would like to know more about Dark Matter and hypothetical Mirror Matter in our Universe, understand why some of these questions remain unanswered, what are possible ways they can be answered in the future, and whether it is possible for them to participate in the exploration of these questions. Besides the interest to the subject and desire of learning the new forms and guises of Nature no previous math or physics background is required. No complicated math concepts will be used beyond the simple algebra. Students will be encouraged to learn by discussion, arguing, asking and answering questions.
