The CUNY Graduate Center is launching a new theory center, the Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences.
A semester’s worth of colloquia, workshops, and public lectures launches tonight with Marc Mézard, whose work spans theoretical physics to machine learning, speaking on “Glassy phase transitions in hard computer science problems” with a reception to follow in the “Skylight room.” I’m guessing that’s on the top floor; look forward to finding out.
A schedule for the semester can be found at their site, http://web.gc.cuny.edu/its/ . The next event after tonight is a public lecture by Marcelo Magnasco : “Did Homer Describe an Eclipse in The Odyssey?"
Their events are also part of the nyc theory google calendar
