BSA Distinguished Lecture

"Extra Dimensions of Space - Are They Going to Be Found Any Time Soon?"

Presented by Valery Rubakov, Institute for Nuclear Research, Moscow, Russia

Tuesday, April 27, 2010, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

Our space may well have more than 3 dimensions. Indeed, theories that pretend to be most fundamental choose to live in higher dimensions: a natural area for superstring/Mtheory is 9- or 10-dimensional space. Extra dimensions have been hidden so far, but they
would open up above a certain energy threshold. A fascinating possibility is that this happens
within reach of particle colliders. This lecture will address the motivation for such a viewpoint
and implications of accessible extra dimensions for our understanding of nature.
