The Geneva Symmetry Group, Beyond Spacetime, and the Space and Time After Quantum Gravity Project are happy to present
Marko Vojinovic (University of Belgrade):
Quantum gravity, metaphysics, spacetime emergence and locality
Wednesday, 19 October, 18:00 (note the new starting time!)
Room L107 at 2, Rue De-Candolle
Anyone who wishes to attend this talk is welcome. The talk will be 4 Einsteins (out of 5).
Abstract: We will present a brief overview of the various approaches to quantum gravity, with the emphasis on the following questions: (1) why quantize gravity, (2) how to quantize gravity, (3) what is spacetime emergence, and (4) the role of metaphysics in all the above. We will also touch upon the foundational issues of diffeomorphism-symmetric quantum mechanics, and the interplay between locality, the measurement problem, the Schrodinger’s cat paradox and quantum cosmology, leading to some open questions at the foundation of both gravity and quantum mechanics.
