Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe invite you to this free Royal Institution talk titled “Computation and the fundamental theory of physics”
In many ways it’s the ultimate question in science: how does our universe work? Is there a fundamental theory? In this talk, Stephen Wolfram will discuss his bold effort to use what he’s learned from exploring computational systems to build a fundamental theory of all of physics.
These online events are free for everyone to access. However, donations are an extremely important source of support for us and we would be most grateful if you are able to contribute. We are a small, independent charity and receive no government funding. Our income from ticket sales and venue hire has been significantly reduced and will continue to fall. Donations, alongside our membership subscriptions are vital to our development and survival.
Please donate via our JustGiving page. Every donation we receive makes a difference. Thank you for your support.
