June 4, 2010 Prof. Kevin H. Knuth's talk at the Laws of Nature: Their Nature and Knowability Workshop at the Perimeter Institute was mentioned in Scientific American's Observations column. The talk can be seen at pirsa. This is in reference to the work that I have performed with my student Newshaw Bahreyni on deriving special relativity from causal relationships among events. Our paper can be found at arXiv:1005.4172v1 [math-ph]. In addition, Philip Goyal's talk was also mentioned, which is joint work with Knuth as well. Our joint paper can be found at arXiv:0907.0909v3 [quant-ph].
May 20-22, 2010 Prof. Kevin H. Knuth was invited to speak at the Laws of Nature: Their Nature and Knowability Workshop at the Perimeter Institute. The talk can be seen here. This was a very interesting workshop expertly organized by David Wolpert, Steve Weinstein, and Chris Fuchs. This workshop brought together an impressive group of individuals in fields ranging from physics to philosophy.
