Universal language of Physics

Today I attended a Statistical Physics lecture by Prof Toshihiro Kawakatsu for undergraduates in Tohoku University in Sendai. The 1.5 hrs intense lecture covered various ensembles, described entropy, and was full of derivations on moving boards. Even though the lecture was in Japanese, I still could follow it thanks to the universal language of Physics – Mathematics ! It brought back lots of memories of teaching Theoretical Physics in 90s in my Alma Mater in Odessa.20130607-173910.jpg
