Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm from the Jersey shore, and I've loved science for as long as I can remember. That's translated to me currently being a obsessive physics geek. I love learning about physics, and I want to let others feel the same thrill from physics that I do.

S327: Symmetry and Noether's Theorem: The Most Beautiful Idea in Physics in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 30, 2016)
Our understanding of the universe is often described by various conservation laws: the conservation of energy, the conservation of momentum, etc. At first glance, it doesn't seem like these ideas are related by any means. But Emmy Noether proved that conservation laws arise from the deeper idea of symmetries. I'll discuss symmetries in the context of physics and conceptually derive Noether's theorem, as well as explain its significance and application.
