Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture

Speaker: Michael B. Green (Cambridge University)

Title: The Scope of String Theory

Interesting physical questions arise on vastly different distance scales, ranging from the nature of the fundamental sub-nuclear particles, to properties of macroscopic condensed matter systems, to features of the whole Universe. The talk will present a survey of approaches describing such disparate  phenomena based on ideas emerging from String Theory, which has the potential for providing a theoretical link between areas of physics that otherwise appear to be only remotely connected.
