This seminar is hosted by the Programme on Computational Cosmology, an Oxford Martin School Programme
Speaker: Dr Yang-Hui He, STFC Advanced Fellow in Theoretical Physics, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Summary: We address some fundamental issues in the nature of space-time and pattern of the Standard Model of elementary particles from the the point of view of computational and algorithmic geometry. We take a dualistic approach, both from the high-energy of string theory and from the low energy of the space of quantum field theories, emphasizing why geometry and super-computing are indispensable tools to understanding why our universe might be the way it is.
