Excellent! Learned a whole lot about black holes and ways to measure gravitational waves.
A fantastic talk, both for content and presentation.
Really cool physics talk that used math to do some fractal analysis on Jackson Pollock's paintings, initially thought to have Pollock's unique fractal signature. Not only did the talk debunk that hypothesis, it also showed that some of Pollock's originals didn't pass the fractal test, while other paintings created by CWRU students in the style of Pollock passed the test making all the nature, science and scientific american articles by authors nonsensical. "People want interdisciplinary work to be successful, it's sexy" is what Kate said, when asked about how this fractal signature idea caught the attention of the scientific community and why such a hypothesis was made.
Fascinating intersection of the arts and natural sciences.
