Is Nature Simple? 2018 Breakthrough Prize Symposium Panel

Published

on



Kim Nasmyth (University of Oxford), Terry Tao (UCLA), David Spergel (Princeton University) and Yuri Milner (Moderator). Science seeks simple causes underpinning complex events. But how do we know nature is simple? Could it be fundamentally complex? If so, can science ever hope to tease out its secrets? Why was the Universe at the Big Bang almost completely simple? Could life be much simpler in structure than RNA/DNA-based life? Are simpler mathematical proofs intrinsically more valuable? Is simplicity itself an aesthetic or a logical quality?

The 2018 Breakthrough Prize Symposium was held December 4, 2017 at Stanford University and co-hosted by UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley. The daylong event included talks and panels featuring Breakthrough Prize laureates in Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics, as well as other distinguished guests.

    Wow. Little too extreme a closing remark on multiverse. Audiences were not amused.
