General covariant foundations of quantum theory: The general boundary formulation

Oct 23
Group Seminar

The standard formulation of quantum theory in terms of Hilbert spaces and operators is inherently dependent on a pre-relativistic notion of time, bringing it into conflict with principles of general relativity. In contrast, the general boundary formulation is a program aimed at establishing general covariant foundations of quantum theory. In this talk I will give a general overview of this program and its relation to existing and future approaches to quantum gravity.
