Warsaw Spacetime Colloquium: Lam & Oriti (6 May on Zoom)

On Friday, 6 May, Vincent Lam (University of Bern & Grenoble Alpes University) and Daniele Oriti (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich) will give a talk titled “The Laws of Quantum Gravity” (abstract below).

The meeting will be online on Zoom (17:00-19:00 CEST). If you have not registered yet, you can do so here. The program for this semester is here. The videos of the previous meetings are available on YouTube.

Several approaches in quantum gravity suggest radical revisions of the standard notion of spacetime, and even its disappearance from the fundamental level of description. We discuss traditional conceptions of laws of nature in the light of these new suggestions about spacetime, and why they become untenable, and we indicate some possible ways to characterize the laws of nature in this quantum gravity context.
