Paul Steinhardt Lecture April 19
Paul Steinhardt, the Albert Einstein Professor of Science at Princeton, will be visiting the Rutgers Philosophy of Physics class on Friday, April 19, from 1-4PM. His talk will begin by discussing the various reasons why most cosmologists today consider the big bang inflationary cosmology to be the leading, if not proven, theory of the universe. Then the discussion will turn to explaining why each of these reasons is flawed. This naturally leads to the question: “what is the alternative?” Understanding the flaws suggests possible directions to turn. This lecture will take place at the Rutgers Philosophy Seminar Room, at 3 Seminary Place, New Brunswick, New Jersey.
