Clark, clarkd@newpaltz.edu SUNY Distinguished Professor About the Topic Since its inception a century ago, quantum theory has served to accurately predict behavior at the atomic and subatomic levels. In his famous statement,"God does not play dice!", Albert Einstein objected to its probabilistic formulation and maintained that there must be a more fundamental theory that would supply the missing information. This lecture will present a famous thought experiment which he and two colleagues devised to establish their point of view. Years after his passing the technology was developed to carry out this experiment and --- contrary to Einstein's expectations --- it showed that there can be no more complete theory. This forces us to accept a reality at the subatomic level that is quite different from our normal experience. About the Speaker David Clark is known worldwide for the depth, breadth, and innovation of his contributions to mathematics in the fields of universal algebra, mathematical logic, and mathematics education. He is one of the founders of the fields of "natural (topological) dualities" and "neural networks", and is a founding editor of the "Journal of Inquiry-Based Learning in Mathematics". During his forty four years at SUNY New Paltz Clark has held temporary research positions in Germany, Portugal, Switzerland, Canada, and Australia, and has spent 9 years as department chair. During 6 years as associate dean he founded the colloquium series (www.newpaltz.edu/sse/colloquium_series.html) and helped to establish an environmental science major. In the minimal spare time left he pursues rock climbing, hang gliding, and amateur astronomy. Trevor Evans was his Ph.D. thesis advisor at Emory University.
