Halmos College Physics Faculty Presents at Mathematics Colloquium

Castano sharkbyte

Diego Castano, Ph.D.

Halmos Faculty Member Diego Castano, Ph.D. will be presenting a talk entitled, “Relativity from Mathematics or Why Newton Could have Beaten Einstein to the Punch”. This talk will discuss the fact that while Special Relativity was developed by Albert Einstein and relied upon the theory of electromagnetism (fully developed in 1873), there is nothing in the basic theory’s development that Newton didn’t know.   A derivation of the theory based on Newton’s laws and mathematical consistency will be presented.

Dr. Castano’s talk will be held at noon on November 1 in the Mailman Hollywood Auditorium (2nd floor). This is part of the Mathematics Colloquium Series hosted by the Halmos College Department of Mathematics.
