In the third episode of the Soft Matters series, Prof. Jim Sethna of Cornell University and I chat about his recent work on the aptly named "sloppy models".

Check out Jesse Silverberg's accompanying blog at the Huffington Post for a Science-to-English dictionary explaining some of the science jargon that inevitably crept into our conversation: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jesse-s...

Want to know more about sloppy models?
- Check out Jim's sloppy models website here: http://www.lassp.cornell.edu/sethna/S...
- You can also take a look at the abstract to his paper in the journal Science here: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/342...

Jim and his students study a lot of topics beyond sloppy models; check out their other projects here: http://www.lassp.cornell.edu/sethna/

Jim also has a great book on statistical mechanics - and the pdf is freely available! Check it out here: http://pages.physics.cornell.edu/~set...

"Soft Matters: Talking Physics, Talking Life" is a paired vlog/blog project conceived and executed by Cornell physics PhD candidates Katie McGill and Jesse Silverberg. Many thanks to the Cornell physics faculty for their enthusiastic participation and to The Huffington Post for hosting the blog portion of the project.
