- February 20, 2013
- Ben Feintzeig and Sam Fletcher present research
Ben Feintzeig and Sam Fletcher, both LPS graduate students, will give papers at the first Irvine-Pittsburgh-Princeton Conference on the Mathematical and Conceptual Foundations of Physics, which will be hosted by the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Philosophy of Science on April 4th and 5th.
Feintzeig, a second year graduate student, will present on recent work generalizing Bell's Theorem, which is perhaps the most important mathematical result bearing on the foundations of quantum theory.
Fletcher, meanwhile, will discuss results from his dissertation that clarify how the mathematical field of topology can (or cannot) help address philosophical questions concerning possible universes in Einstein's general relativity.
