Presented By: Department of Physics

Physics Graduate Student Symposium (PGSS) | Assumptions of Physics

Christine Aidala (U-M Physics)

The Assumptions of Physics project seeks to find a minimal set of physical assumptions from which the basic laws of physics can be rigorously rederived. It consists of two complementary approaches. The first, Reverse Physics, analyzes known theories to identify those physical principles and assumptions that can be taken as their conceptual foundation. The second, Physical Mathematics, seeks to identify and construct mathematical structures that can be rigorously justified from physical requirements and are therefore physically significant. Results from both approaches will be presented, as well as future plans and opportunities to contribute.
