Random Networks and Geometries in Physics

22 April 2021

Physicists have long speculated that spacetime at the very shortest scales may not be a continuum. I will attempt to provide an accessible overview of various attempt to construct spacetime geometries from first principles that draw upon, or are adjacent to ideas in network theory. This talk assumes no prior knowledge beyond the basics of network theory (although some knowledge of the basics of information theory will help for context), and will culminate in a review of the recent preprint "The birth of geometry in exponential random graphs"
