Speaker: Daniel Sudarsky (ICN-UNAM)
5:00 — 7:00 pm, Thursday October 27th, NYU Silver Center Room 620 (address: 31 Washington Place, NYC)
Abstract: I will discuss some of the extra difficulties one needs to face when addressing the measurement problem (MP) in gravitational contexts. We will see that complications appear both at the conceptual as well as the more technical levels . We will see however that there are great potential benefits in adopting certain approaches towards the MP , which surprisingly result on the plausible resolution of some old and some new problems facing the physics of gravitation. The main focus will be on the so called dynamical collapse theories but I will also touch on various issues as seen from the perspective of other approaches.
There will be a dinner after the talk.
