Space Time Physics, Transfinite Mathematics and Computer Art

On the occasion of the 60th birthday of Mohamed El Naschie the ZKM is organizing a symposium on "Space-Time Physics, Transfinite Mathematics, and Computer Art". Mohamed El Naschie was successful in deriving a model for the so-called multifractal space-time which allows to predict the mass of elementary particles and derive universal constants. The derivation of these constants is not possible through the "standard model" which is why the physicists search for extensions or modifications of this theory. The conference deals with problems of this kind and includes thereby new and controversially debated approaches. It also includes mathematical considerations that propose them-selves to be fruitfully used within space-time physics. Additionally, the symposium addresses the attempt to use artistic approaches to gain knowledge on space-time and it is dicussed which connections between physics and art exist. Date: Saturday, October 11, 2003. 10:00 h - ca 19:00 h. Schedule
