TEP Seminars      

particles

The goal of Theoretical Elementary Particle (TEP) physics seminars  is to attain a fundamental description of the laws of physics, the constituents of matter and their interactions.

SCSS

stringsThe Southern California Strings Seminar (SCSS) is where we gather and discuss new ideas and developments, both general and specialized, in the field.

Bhaumik Luncheon Seminars

The Mani L. Bhaumik Institute of Theoretical Physics is pleased to present the Bhaumik Luncheon Seminar series. The goal of this Seminar series is to learn about exciting new ideas from scientists in the department through short talks and discussions. The Seminar is usually held once per academic quarter. Come, participate, and enjoy a light lunch.

Upcoming Bhaumik Luncheon Seminars:

 


Bhaumik Luncheon Young Scientists Seminar (BLYSS)

Our new seminar series, the Bhaumik Luncheon Young Scientists Seminar (BLYSS) launched in Fall of 2017. The goal of this seminar is to learn about exciting new ideas from up-and-coming scientists in the department and from around the world.
