"The Drunkard's Walk" - Perimeter Institute's Public Lecture on Wednesday, May 6

May 4, 2009

WATERLOO, ON, May 4 - In The Drunkard's Walk, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, change, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives. By exposing the true nature of chance and the psychological illusions that cause us to misjudge the world around us, Mlodinow provides the tools we need to make more informed decisions.

Leonard Mlodinow (PhD University of California-Berkeley) teaches about randomness to future scientists at Caltech. He has written for the television series MacGyver and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Previous books include Euclid's Window: The Story of Geometry from Parallel Lines to Hyperspace, Feynman's Rainbow: A Search for Beauty in Physics and in Life, and, with Stephen Hawking, A Briefer History of Time.

Prof. Mlodinow's lecture, entitled "The Drunkard's Walk" will be held Wednesday, May 6 at 7:00 pm in Waterloo, Ontario.
