The Dirac Lectures is an initiative of Florida State University to celebrate the memory of Paul Dirac, late FSU Physics faculty member, Nobel prize winner, and namesake of the Dirac Science Library. These lectures bring outstanding speakers to FSU to present physics topics of particular interest and notability.
The 2020 Dirac Lectures series will be dedicated to the subject of Gravitational Waves, from their momentous discovery in 2015 to their widespread impact across multiple disciplines, including astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear and particle physics. The lectures will be held in Keen building in April 14-16, 2020.
