Louis Clark Vanuxem Lecture cosponsored by the Department of Physics and the Department of Astrophysical Sciences as part of their 2005 Einstein/World Year of Physics celebrations
April 6, 2005
The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time & the Texture of Reality
Our understanding of space and time has undergone a series of upheavals during the last 300 years. In this talk, Prof. Greene will describe some of these, from Newton's absolute conception of space and time, to Einstein's relativistic version, through quantum theory's uncertainty and entanglement, to cutting-edge work in string theory suggesting more dimensions of space than those we can see. No expertise in physics will be presumed.
