“On the Physical Significance of Gauge Symmetry”
Nicholas Teh, University of Cambridge
 
I will survey some recent philosophical claims about the physical significance (or lack thereof) of gauge symmetry, especially the work of Wallace and Greaves, on the one hand, and Carlo Rovelli, on the other.
There will be a dinner after the talk. Only the speaker’s dinner will be covered, but anybody is welcome. If you are interested, please email nyphilsci@gmail.com as soon as possible so that we can make the reservation for the appropriate number of people. If you have any other questions, please email nyphilsci@gmail.com
