Dr. Alan M. Nathan will present on February 8, 2013 a talk on "The Physics of Baseball"

in the Amoco Hall in USC's Swearingen Engineering center. After a long career studying high-speed collisions of subatomic particles, Alan Nathan now studies collisions between baseballs and bats. Whether you're a scientist, a baseball enthusiast, or just a sports fan, join us at 7:00pm as we explore the world of knuckleballs, pop flies, and home runs using the powers of mathematics and physics! The talk is free and open to the public.
