“Enrico Fermi” Chair has been established in 2011 by Ministro dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca (MIUR) Mariastella Gelmini to promote knowledge of modern physics beyond university courses, and to celebrate the scientific tradition of our country. The universal genius of Enrico Fermi has indeed provided long-lasting contributions in almost all fields of modern physics, from atomic, nuclear and particle physics, to solid state physics, cosmic rays, general relativity and high-dimensional calculus.
On each year, within an academic semester, the holder of the Chair provides a series of Lectures Enrico Fermi. Lectures are open to a non-specialist public, and concern the research field where the Chair holder has provided a significant contribution. Lectures are subsequently published by the Physics Department of Sapienza Università di Roma
Enrico Fermi Lectures are for a non-specialist audience. The mathematical complexity will be reduced at minimum and, when strictly necessary, will be restricted to a few specific Lectures.
