With Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director and Leon Levy Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study.
Albert Einstein discovered that time should be seen as a fourth dimension that can be added to the three dimensions of space. What exactly does this mean? Can one imagine higher dimensions? How does geometry work in four-dimensional spacetime? And how does this help us understand fundamental questions in physics like the Big Bang, black holes, and the behavior of elementary particles according to the rules of quantum mechanics?
Light refreshments will be served after the 4pm session and at 6:30pm in advance of the second session.Buy tickets/get more info now
