July 25, 2023 - As part of the Lecture Series on Popularizing Mathematics and Science, jointly hosted by the ECO Science Foundation (ECOSF) and the Union of Iranian Societies of Mathematical Sciences (UIMS), Prof. Yousef Sobouti delivered a captivating and inspiring talk. Prof. Yousef Sobouti is a renowned Iranian Physicist affiliated with Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences – Zanjan, Iran.
Over 60 enthusiastic participants from the ECO region joined the event online, and more than 40 participants gathered physically at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University Sheringal Dir Upper, where they participated with the lecture in person.
The lecture was divided into two parts, with the first part focusing on "Understanding Others the Science Way." Prof. Sobouti emphasized the crucial distinction between evidence-based sciences and opinion-based doctrines. He highlighted that evidence-based sciences derive their credibility from observations, conclusions, and predictions that are consistent with each other. On the other hand, opinion-based doctrines rely on the reputation and social influence of their authors and followers. Prof Sobouti highlighted that human body of knowledge on the steps of a ladder, beginning from the most exact and best "evidence-based" sciences and ending with the least verifiable "opinion- based" creeds.
In the second part of the lecture, Prof. Sobouti presented three arguable concepts: the notion of point particle singularity, the asymmetric action of electromagnetic fields on quantum wave functions, and the significance of the left-out restricted Lorentz gauge from U(1).
The lecture concluded with an interactive Q&A session, allowing participants to engage directly with Prof. Sobouti and explore further insights. In his closing remarks, Prof. Seyed Komail Tayebi, President of ECOSF stressed the importance of popularizing mathematics and science. He expressed deep gratitude to Prof. Sobouti, and special thanks to Prof. Ali Rejali, and all the participants for their active participation.
