Murray Gell-Mann - The Simple and the Complex

2 Episodes

The late Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann addresses the relationship between the world of everyday experience and the mysterious world of sub-atomic particles. He points out that chaos theory shows that many large-scale events are extremely sensitive to initial conditions. Regarding complexity, he says that random systems which are difficult to describe may be no more complex than ones which are completely orderly.

Murray Gell-Mann, Ph.D., received the Nobel Prize for theoretical work in physics. He is professor emeritus at California Institute of Technology and author of The Quark and the Jaguar.
