THE PROBLEM OF TIME IN QUANTUM GRAVITY

15 May 2013

Time: 4:17pm
Venue: Maths 103
Series: The London Relativity and Cosmology Seminar
Speaker: Edward Anderson (Paris)
Abstract: I present a local resolution of the Problem of Time. It is, moreover, Machian. It works for the relational triangle and for minisuperspace. I conclude by: 
  1. listing concrete obstacles for the general GR case.
  2. outlining why Halliwell-Hawking's inhomogeneous perturbations about minisuperspace are a good place to next take this study.
