The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything
Dr. Neil Turok gives a talk about the remarkably simplicity that underlies nature. Turok discussed how this simplicity at the largest and tiniest scales of the universe is pointing toward new avenues of physics research and could lead to revolutionary advances in technology.
Neil Geoffrey Turok is a South African physicist, and the Director of Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. His work has been in the area of mathematical physics and early universe physics, including the cosmological constant and a cyclic model for the universe.
|The Astonishing Simplicity of Everything|
|From Zero to Infinity, and Beyond!
The universe revealed by observations is spectacularly simple: spatially flat, with nearly scale-invariant fluctuations.
|Spacetime Atoms and the Unity of Physics
Professor Fay Dowker describes black hole thermodynamics and argue that it is telling us that spacetime itself is granular or "atomic" at very tiny scales.
|Quantum Physics and Universal Beauty
Frank Wilczek's groundbreaking work in quantum physics was inspired by his intuition to look for a deeper order of beauty in the universe, using simple questions in an attempt to see the whole answer.
|The Character of Physical Law
This consists of seven lectures given by physicist Richard Feynman, concerning the nature of the laws of physics.
This course of the Theoretical Minimum series will concentrate on cosmology, the science of the origin and development of the universe.
