Step Inside the Perimeter

Just one breakthrough in theoretical physics can change the world. Perimeter Institute was created to accelerate breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe. The science is complex, but the basic Perimeter equation is simple: Bright Minds. Illuminating Ideas. Brilliant Future. … Continue reading

Materialism/Physicalism

In philosophy, the theory of materialism holds that the only thing that exists is matter or energy; that all things are composed of material and all phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material interactions. In other words, matter is … Continue reading

Noncommutative standard model

In theoretical particle physics, the non-commutative Standard Model, mainly due to the French mathematician Alain Connes, uses his noncommutative geometry to devise an extension of the Standard Model to include a modified form of general relativity. This unification implies a … Continue reading

Descriptive geometry

At this point in the development, although geometry provided a common framework for all the forces, there was still no way to complete the unification by combining quantum theory and general relativity. Since quantum theory deals with the very small … Continue reading

Projective Geometries

A theorem which is valid for a geometry in this sequence is automatically valid for the ones that follow. The theorems of projective geometry are automatically valid theorems of Euclidean geometry. We say that topological geometry is more abstract than … Continue reading
