Abstract:

In addition to being a Nobel laureate, Murray Gell-Mann is an accomplished physicist who's earned numerous awards, medals, and honorary degrees for his work with subatomic particles, including the groundbreaking theory that the nucleus of an atom comprises 100 or so fundamental building blocks called quarks. Dubbed "the man with five brains," he now heads the evolution of human languages program at the Santa Fe Institute, which he cofounded in 1984. In this TEDTalk, he is armed with a sense of humor and laypeople's terms and he addresses whether or not elegant equations are more likely to right than inelegant ones. "The names alone that Gell-Mann applies to his new theories and formulations reflect his sense of humor, immensely broad range of interests, and deep understanding. The theories themselves say that much more," says PBS.
