John D. Barrow: 100 Years of Universes
Every solution of Einstein’s equation is an entire universe. They offer a novel solution to some deep puzzles about the structure of the astronomical universe. Prof. Barrow will in this lecture embark on a travel which will lead us through the islands of some of the pertinent questions of modern physics, cosmology, and mathematics.
Will we ever discover a single scientific theory that tells us everything that has happened, and everything that will happen, on every level in the Universe? What might such a theory look like? What would it mean? And how close are we to getting there?
This public lecture with John D. Barrow is part of the conference Kurt Gödel´s Legacy, and will be in memory of Wolfgang Rindler, an Austrian physicist specializing in relativity and its effects on cosmology, who died in February 2019.
After the lecture, you are welcome to take part in an informal reception.
Professor John D. Barrow has been a Professor of Mathematical Sciences, Geometry and Astronomy (!) at the University of Cambridge since 1999, carrying out research in mathematical physics, with special interest in cosmology, gravitation, particle physics and associated applied mathematics.
He is known for his storytelling abilities - He has also delivered lectures in a perhaps unique combination of locations including 10 Downing Street, Windsor Castle, the Vatican Palace and the Venice Film festival.
