This seminar is part of the Ronin Institute Public Seminar Series, featuring our Research Scholars. We welcome members of the public to attend.
Title: The Tiny and the Vast: Predictions about Elementary Particles, Dark Matter, and the Cosmos
Summary of the seminar: We discuss work that might solve three 80-year physics challenges:
– Describing all elementary particles.
– Describing dark matter.
– Explaining the changing rates at which very large objects move away from each other.
Fun Fact: Possibly one cannot solve any one of the three challenges without solving all three of them. It took me nine-plus years to do so. Fortunately, the underlying math is simpler than math other people use to try to tackle the challenges.
