The University of Arizona: Zakharov Lectureship 2022 – Physical Nature of Information: How to Receive, Dend and Forget Information, Lecture 1

We are pleased to announce the “Zakharov Lectureship” in honor of Regents Professor Vladimir Zakharov’s retirement, his contributions to the Program in Applied Mathematics and the Mathematics Department.  The event will support an annual series of lectures during the spring in Tucson.

The first Zakharov Lectureship begins on Monday, January 31, 2022 and will be given by distinguished scientist, Professor Gregory “Grisha” Falkovich from the Weizmann Institute of Science.  He will give a series of 5 lectures, once per week over 5 weeks on “Physical Nature of Information: How to receive, send and forget information”.

Please see schedule.


Lecture 1: How the engineering question of thermal engine efficiency spawned two hundred years of ever-accelerating progress in fundamental science, communications and computations. Thermodynamic and statistical entropy. The puzzle of the second law of thermodynamics. How irreversible entropy growth appears from reversible flows in phase space via dynamical chaos. Entropy decrease and non-equilibrium fractal measures.

  • Audience: Adult, STEM Professional
  • Genre: Engineering, Mathematics
