    #112 – Ian Hutchinson: Nuclear Fusion, Plasma Physics, and Religion

    Ian Hutchinson is a nuclear engineer and plasma physicist at MIT. He has made a number of important contributions in plasma physics including the magnetic confinement of plasmas seeking to enable fusion reactions, which is the energy source of the stars, to be used for practical energy production. Current nuclear reactors are based on fission as we discuss. Ian has also written on the philosophy of science and the relationship between science and religion.

    #111 – Richard Karp: Algorithms and Computational Complexity

    #111 – Richard Karp: Algorithms and Computational Complexity

    Richard Karp is a professor at Berkeley and one of the most important figures in the history of theoretical computer science. In 1985, he received the Turing Award for his research in the theory of algorithms, including the development of the Edmonds–Karp algorithm for solving the maximum flow problem on networks, Hopcroft–Karp algorithm for finding maximum cardinality matchings in bipartite graphs, and his landmark paper in complexity theory called “Reducibility Among Combinatorial Problems”, in which he proved 21 problems to be NP-complete. This paper was probably the most important catalyst in the explosion of interest in the study of NP-completeness

well told tales; lots of grist for the mind's mill

Andy XSun ,

very inspiring interviews

I’m so glad to find this podcast. I enjoyed listening to every interview. These are brilliant people top in their fields sharing really inspiring insights about science and others. And Lex always comes up with sharp and relevant questions and matches with these brilliant minds by more just asking prepared questions but explaining, discussing and arguing.
