What are mathematical models and what is the role of mathematical thinking in how we understand the physical world? Do we live in a universe having more than three spatial dimensions? What might we learn about nature and reality from experiments performed in the giant new "atom smasher" built in Europe? Dr. Matilde Marcolli will appear at Revolution Books for a discussion of the role of mathematical thinking in our understanding of reality and how experiments in the new CERN "atom smasher" may provide us with insights into some of the deepest questions about the universe.She will also discuss important political issues relating to the popularization of science. Dr. Marcolli is a professor of mathematics in the Division of Mathematics,Physics,and Astronomy at the California Institute of Techology(Caltech). She is currently on an extended visit to the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley.
This event is for a general audience.
