Neil Turok: Quantum Universe - 2021 ICMS Christmas Public Lecture

 Dec 14 2021

18:00 - 19:00

ICMS are delighted to welcome  Neil Turok (Edinburgh) for this 2021 Christmas public lecture



Quantum Universe

Ever since Galileo, observations of the physical world have confirmed the remarkable power of mathematical reasoning. In recent times, the range of our understanding has expanded to the largest cosmological scales and to tiny, subatomic scales. In both regimes, we find a surprising simplicity and economy in nature's laws. The observations provide clues to the solution of major puzzles: how are quantum theory and gravity reconciled? what happened at the big bang? what fixed time's arrow? what are the dark matter and dark energy? is there a complete mathematical theory of the universe?
