WHAT ARE GRAVITY FIELDS ANYWAY?
Professor David Tong David Tong is a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge. In this talk he will describe our current understanding of gravity, from Newton to Einstein. He will explain how the recent discovery of gravitational waves confirms these ideas in the most spectacular way imaginable. THE BEAUTY OF FLAVOUR Professor Val Gibson The LHCb experiment at CERN is designed to search for new phenomena in heavy quark systems, which could ultimately explain why we live in a universe made of matter and not anti-matter. This talk focuses on the latest results: the precision measurements that benchmark our current knowledge; the tantalisingly deviations; and the discovery of many new particles, including pentaquarks.
