Reduction and Emergence in Physics
The aim of the workshop is to bring together physicists and philosophers of physics for a meeting focused on fundamental issues in physics relating to reduction and emergence. Participants will include researchers with expertise in string theory, statistical physics, condensed matter physics, and renormalisation. The workshop will combine consideration of issues in contemporary physics research with discussion of longstanding philosophical questions, such as the nature of scientific explanations and the relationship between different systems of physical laws.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Sir Michael Berry (Bristol), Jeremy Butterfield (Cambridge), Richard Dawid (Wien), Paul Hoyningen-Huene (Hannover), Eric Winsberg (South Florida), Charlotte Werndl (LSE), Lena Zuchowski (Cambridge).
