The Jazz of Physics: The Link Between Music and The Structure of the Universe

SAlexander In this Colloquium I will revisit the interconnection between music and the evolution of astrophysics and the laws of motion.  We will explore new ways music, in particlar Jazz music, mirrors modern physics, such as quantum mechanics, general relativity and the physics of the early universe.  Finally, we will discuss ways that innovations in physics has been and can be inspired from "improvissational logic" exemplified in Jazz performance and practice.
