Previous events from the project
An online workshop that brought together scientists and philosophers from around the world working on foundational problems relating to the arrow of time in theoretical physics, philosophy and biology, to discuss current problems and open issues in the field.
Theoretical quantum physicist, Professor Gerard Milburn, outlined in his talk an apparent conflict between time, as we experience it, "manifest time", and time as it appears in physical law.
This workshop took place at the University of Bristol and was based around the theme 'quantum ontology and the arrow of time'.
World-leading scientist Professor Penrose spoke about his cosmological scheme, which is also relevant to the arrow of time.
Professor Palmer discussed his theory on discretised complex Hilbert spaces, which leads to a novel application of ideas in number theory to study possible deterministic underpinnings to quantum physics.
Experts in the field of philosophy of physics, general philosophy of science and theoretical physics, Karim Thébault and Nick Huggett, joined us to discuss the emergence of time in quantum cosmology.
