Dirac Lectures

The Dirac Lectures is an initiative of Florida State University to celebrate the memory of Paul Dirac, late FSU Physics faculty member, Nobel prize laureate, and namesake of the Dirac Science Library. These lectures bring outstanding speakers to FSU to present physics topics of particular interest and notability.
