Come to the Old Combination Room at 6 pm, February 27, to hear from David Tong, Professor of Theoretical Physics at DAMTP in Cambridge!

Professor Tong works on quantum field theory, studying its aspects related to string theory, supersymmetry, solitons, cosmology and condensed matter physics. He will be speaking on the renormalisation group.

“The universe is organised according to scale. Little things affect big things. But very little things do not affect very big things. I’ll explain what this means and why it underlies vast swathes of science.”

The Old Combination Room can be reached from the Great Gate by walking diagonally across the court into the hall, turning left and going upstairs.

This talk is part of the Trinity College Science Society (TCSS) series.
