02/07/2018HEP SeminarSurjeet RajendranCosmological Solutions to the Problems of Existence [ -- Description ]

Description: I will discuss a new class of solutions to the Cosmological Constant and Higgs fine-tuning problems that do not require the presence of new physics at the Large Hadron Collider. Instead, they involve a new proposal for the history of the universe wherein these parameters achieve their observed values as a result of cosmic evolution. In addition, I will exploit a loop-hole in the singularity theorems of General Relativity to allow for a calculable, non-singular 'bounce', essential for a solution to the cosmological constant problem.
