String Theory: Quantum Mechanics and Gravity -- The Start of a Beautiful Relationship?
McGill University and the Perimeter Institute
Fri. March 18, 2005 11:30 AM Stirling A|
String theory is our best candidate for a theory of the physics at very short distances, and is the only known candidate theory which handles quantum corrections to gravity in a reasonable way at the shortest distances. In this talk I summarize the advances which have been made in understanding string theory, and the problems which remain to be solved.|
|The Canadian Association of Physicists is sponsoring this lecture, particularly aimed at an undergraduate level. All are welcome, and refreshments and informal discussion will follow the talk.|
