Frontiers Lecture: Our Mathematical Universe with Max Tegmark
January 13, 2014
Cosmologist Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present, and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that form the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of popular and groundbreaking science, Tegmark not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories, but he also shares with us some surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist.
Following the lecture, Dr. Tegmark will sign copies of his new book, Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family.
