This hackathon will provide students with an opportunity to experience collaboration, gain new connections, test problem solving, and have fun doing physics. It will also encourage meaningful connections between industry and research leaders in physics and the students outside of the classroom environment.
This week in Phys 10 we have waterloo physics alumni Kartik Talwar coming to present. You may recognize Kartik's name from being a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient back in 2018, along with founding Hack the North and ETHglobal.

Most theories are too complicated and we can not solve them. Usually we use perturbation theory instead (or cry). We can do better sometimes for so-called integrable theories. I will describe what these are and how they show up in real materials and even in string and quantum field theories.
This talk is geared toward an upper year audience; as always, everyone is welcome to attend.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
