Casual Sets and the Quantum Action
Speaker(s): Fay Dowker
Abstract: The struggle between local and global concepts in physics comes to a head in  causal set quantum gravity. Local physics -- and general relativity in particular -- must be recovered in a continuum approximation if the theory is to  be successful but causal sets are inherently ... read more

A la recherche du temps perdu....in quantum gravity
Speaker(s): Fay Dowker
Abstract: Causal set quantum gravity is based on the marriage between the concept of causality as an organising principle more basic even than space or time and fundamental atomicity. Causal sets suggest novel possibilities for "dynamical laws" in which spacetime grows by the accumulation of new spacetime ato... read more

Spacetime Atoms and the Unity of Physics
Speaker(s): Fay Dowker
Abstract: Black holes are hot! This discovery made by Stephen Hawking ties together gravity, spacetime, quantum matter, and thermal systems into the beautiful and exciting science of "Black Hole Thermodynamics". Its beauty lies in the powerful way it speaks of the unity of physics. The excitement arises... read more
