Zoltan Toroczkai, a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Notre Dame, will present “The Brain in Space” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, in Moulton Hall, room 214. The talk is part of the Spring 2016 Physics Colloquium.

Photo of Zoltan ToroczkaiToroczkai’s work is in the general area of complex systems research, bringing and developing tools from mathematics, equilibrium and non-equlibrium statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to bear on applications ranging from fluid flows, processes in solids, to complex networked systems. His research interests also include theoretical foundations of computing, non-traditional models of learning and computation by physical systems, brain neuronal systems, and agent-based approaches to social behavior.

The event is free and open to the public. For accommodation requests or more information on the colloquium series, contact the Department of Physics at 438-8756 or email Kerry Stewart at krstewa@ilstu.edu.
