Christopher Essex will speak as a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar, giving the lecture "When Scientific Technicalities Matter." Sometimes mathematicians and physicists seem obsessive. Their geekish technicalities don't seem to matter, even though they actually do. This lecture is about how some of these seeming minutiae actually are important to how we comprehend our world, and whether we are able to fear it or marvel at it. Essex is the co-discoverer of the entropy production paradox and is former director of the Theoretical Physics Program at the University of Western Ontario, where he is a professor of applied mathematics. His work on radiation thermodynamics was highlighted at the 2011 Joint European Thermodynamics Conference, and he has taught on this subject at the UNESCO advanced school in Udine, Italy. Essex coauthored the award-winning "Taken by Storm: The Troubled Science, Policy, and Politics of Global Warming" and "Calculus: A Complete Course." He has a B.Sc. (Hon.) from the University of Western Ontario, an M.S. from Rice University, and a Ph.D. from York University.
