The End of Space and Time: The Mathematics of Black Holes and the Big Bang
Saturday April 17, 2021 from 6:00pm - 6:45pm ET
Einstein showed more than a century ago how his theory of relativity captures gravity and the evolution of the cosmos in the geometry of space and time. However these laws of the universe break down at the frontiers of science: at the Big Bang, where time begins, and inside black holes, where time stops. New mathematical ideas about quantum geometry suggest a structure even more fundamental than space and time.
