Australian Institute of Physics - S.A. Branch

The Subatomic Structure of Matter and the Origin of Mass

Anthony W Thomas
Elder Professor of Physics
and Director, CSSM,
University of Adelaide

Wednesday, 31th May at 7:30pm in the
FLENTJE lecture theatre,
University of Adelaide

Established just 3 years ago, Australia's National Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) has earned an international reputation for its research programs in Theoretical Nuclear and Particle Physics. We aim to understand the structure of matter at its deepest levels. After providing a brief history of the CSSM and its aims and achievements, I will delve into some of the research highlights in an easily understandable manner. Our research has implications for the understanding of matter inside pulsars and within the first second after the big bang. We are discovering new insights into the origin of mass itself.

Members are invited to have dinner prior to the lecture from 6:00pm onwards at Caffe Buongiorno (187 Rundle Street, Adelaide). Bookings should be made by noon on the day of the lecture with the AIP-SA Secretary.

Please note the change in venue to the Flentje Lecture Theatre.
