Talks this week: Fay Dowker

The Service de communication of the University of Geneva and the Geneva Symmetry Group are very happy to announce two talks this week by

Fay Dowker, Professor of Theoretical Physics at Imperial College London

The first of these two events will be an informal seminar on Wednesday, 16 May, 18:15-19:45 in room L208 at 2, rue de Candolle:

Where do small dimensionless numbers in physics come from?

Abstract: I will present a “historical” perspective on cosmological small numbers such an Lambda and the “flatness” of the universe, coming from causal set theory.

Secondly, there will a public talk on Thursday, 17 May, 18:30 at Uni Dufour (room will be indicated at entrance), with words of welcome by Marcel Weber, director of the Department of Philosophy, and a short introduction of the topic and the speaker by myself:

Past, Present and Future: The Science of Time

Be there early–the Service de communication expects a full lecture hall.

Looking forward to seeing you at these events!
