The Universe Speaks in Numbers


The Universe Speaks in Numbers: Zohar Komargodski interviewed by Graham Farmelo

Season 1, Ep. 20

Much of understanding of the universe at the finest level is based on modern field theory, rooted in the pioneering contributions of the nineteenth century British natural philosophers Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell. In this podcast of most brilliantly creative young field theorists, Zohar Komargodski tells us why this subject is still so rich in potential, and why he is quite happy to work on it without the stimulus of new and surprising experimental data.

This is one of a series of interviews given by world-class experts to Graham on the themes he explores in his new book The Universe Speaks in Numbers
