Part of the TMS Symposium

I’ll try and argue that much of our current understanding of the universe – from its origins to its most fundamental components – rests crucially on the framework of quantum field theories. After a general overview, time permitting, I’ll talk about the much dreaded concept of renormalization, the difficulty of introducing mass and the celebrated Higgs mechanism.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
