Lee Smolin in London

Lee Smolin is to mark the publication of his new book, “Time Reborn: From the Crisis of Physics to the Future of the Universe” [1] by giving a talk in London, hosted by the Institute of Physics. The talk will he held at the Institute’s offices in London from 6pm, 22 May 2013.

In his new book Smolin suggests the laws of physics are not fixed, but rather they evolve in time. This hypothesis maybe a way of resolving some of the open questions in physics, such as the nature of the quantum mechanics and its unification with space-time and cosmology.
