KICP Colloquium: Paul Steinhardt (Princeton University)

3:30–4:30 pm ERC 161

Paul Steinhardt (Princeton University)  "Cosmology reconsidered"

The foremost challenge for any theory of the origin and evolution of the universe is to explain the observed homogeneity, isotropy and spatial flatness on large scales. In this talk, we will revisit this issue to reveal some common misconceptions about what is required to explain these properties and point to possibilities that are up to the task.
