IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Spacetime from Quantum Mechanics

23rd January 2013, 19:30, Penthouse Suite, Collingwood College, Professor Robert de Mello Koch


We review our current understanding of gravity, summarized in Einstein's theory of General Relativity, and our understanding of the remaining three forces in nature, in terms of the exchange of force carrying particles in Quantum Field Theory. A unified description of nature requires a synthesis of General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory into a single framework. A promising candidate for this unified theory, String Theory, is described.
