“GRAVITATIONAL WAVES FROM THE BIRTH
OF THE UNIVERSE AND IMPLICATIONS FOR
FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS”
Abstract:
Gravitational Waves from Inflation may have been discovered, or may
soon be discovered. If they are, this will push our empirical handle on the
universe forward by 49 orders of magnitude, and will allow us to explore
issues ranging from supersymmetry to grand unification, the quantum
theory of gravity, and even the possible existence of other universes.
Dr. Krauss is Director of the ASU Origins
Project at Arizona State University
and Foundation Professor in the School of
Earth and Space Exploration and the
Department of Physics. Described
by Scientific American as a unique
scientific 'public intellectual', Krauss is a
renowned theoretical physicist as well as
one of the most well-known advocates for
science worldwide. In addition to over
300 scientific publications, He has written
nine books for a general audience,
including the international bestsellers The
Physics of Star Trek and A Universe From
Nothing, with translations into over 20
languages. His research has focused on
the intersection on cosmology and
elementary particle physics, including
general relativity and quantum gravity,
the early universe, the origin of mass,
neutrino astrophysics, and the long term
future of the universe. He is the winner
of numerous international awards, and is
the only physicist to have received major
awards from all three US physics
societies.
