String theory: unde venis et quo vadis?

6 July 2012

with Dr Ralph Blumenhagen (Max Planck Institute for Physics)

String theory is a framework for a unified description of all forms of matter, and of all the interactions between them. It started with a very simple theory, namely that all the fundamental objects are tiny, oscillating strings. The mathematical analysis of that hypothesis leads to a completely new approach to theoretical physics, in which our common notions of space and time are completely challenged.

The Strings 2012 conference will take place in Munich at the end of July, and will bring together the world specialists in string theory. On 10 July 2010, Dr Ralph Blumenhagen (Max Planck Institute for Physics) will discuss the themes and the future results that he expects from this exciting research field with Café & Kosmos guests.

Please note that the Café & Kosmos events take place in German.

What: String theory
When: Tuesday, 10 July 2012, 19:00 until approximately 20:30
