Simons Foundation Lectures are free public colloquia related to basic science and mathematics. These high-level talks are intended for professors, students, postdocs and business professionals, but interested people from the metropolitan area are welcome as well.
Katepalli Sreenivasan will describe what is known about the convective phenomena in the sun using results from basic turbulence modeling, numerical simulations, as well as helioseismology. He will then focus on a few outstanding problems.
