Dr Antony Valentini, Research Associate, Theoretical Physics Group, Imperial College.

Challenging popular belief: quantum uncertainty is not fundamental and time is universal not relative.

Dr Antony Valentini has resurrected a theory that undoes the central tenet of quantum mechanics. The theory follows quantum math, but at the same time allows for new possibilities beyond conventional quantum mechanics. It's a theory that says there is indeed an objective reality behind the things we observe-that quantum uncertainty is not fundamental. And that somewhere, somehow, time is universal - not relative. Antony's particular twist on the theory suggests a new explanation for the uniformity of the early universe - where, he suggests, quantum law might not have applied, where stuff could interact faster than the speed of light-and where those interactions were actually visible.

Antony recently moved to Clemson University, South Carolina, where he has been appointed Professor of Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Optionally followed by supper (this can be booked on the event booking form).
After the lecture a Friends' Table has been reserved at a local restaurant to entertain the speaker and for any of the audience who would like to join us to continue the evening's discussion. A two-course fixed price supper is served including wine, coffee and service charge.
