Inaugural lecture by Prof David Berman

On 14 November Prof. David Berman will give his inaugural lecture on “The symmetries of nature and hidden extra dimensions”. He will give an account of how our understanding of nature has progressed through a deeper understanding of its symmetries. By proposing extra, as yet undiscovered, dimensions to space these symmetries become explained by the geometry of the hidden space. Then to capture the different symmetries present in string theory we need to generalise the idea of geometry itself. The lecture and a drinks reception will begin at 18:30 in the Skeel Lecture Theatre in QMUL’s People’s Palace.
