I'm a physics student at UFRJ and a young pianist. I'm interested in piano music, specially Scriabin and Mozart.
Yay for physicists! --Emeraldimp 11:07, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
Hi Taam, glad to make your acquaintance. If I understood you correctly, you're in the graduate program at UFRJ (?). Do you know yet what field of physics you want to do research in? Incidentally, Mozart and Scriabin are among my favorites also, along with Bach and Chopin. Physicist 12:19, 26 May 2007 (EDT)
Taam, you asked about me - I'm afraid you've picked a dull topic. Briefly, I'm a research physicist interested in anything quantum - the more quantum it is, the better I like it. I usually work with models from condensed matter physics, quantum optics, and many-body theory (e.g. integrable models), and I use tools from quantum information theory, quantum measurement theory, etc., to try to understand what is truly quantum about the models. Toss in a little conformal field theory... Anyway, I play piano, everything from Renaissance keyboard music to twentieth century atonal music, but my favorites are probably Bach and Chopin. If I'm feeling really masochistic I'll struggle with Godowsky. I play Scriabin sometimes, particularly the études (I love the Op.65) and préludes, sometimes some of the other short pieces, but not the sonatas (although they're great music). The Liapunov études are also really fun, but his sonata is a long-winded bore. I'm just starting to play Mozart again, after a long time away from his music. Physicist 23:32, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
Nice to meet you, too. ;-) And, unfortunately, not a genius... :-P --Emeraldimp 17:02, 29 May 2007 (EDT)
