报告摘要:We have two remarkable descriptions of nature. Our current understanding of gravity, summarized in Einstein's theory of general relativity claims that there is no such thing as a gravitational force. The illusion of gravitational attraction is the result of a curved spacetime manifold. Our understanding of the remaining three forces in nature is in terms of the exchange of force carrying particles in quantum field theory. General Relativity is used to describe phenomena at galactic and cosmological length scales, while quantum field theory is used to describe atomic and subatomic length scales. While these two theories are remarkably successful in their respective domains of validity, there is at present no way to unify them into a single consistent framework. In this talk we will review this problem and sketch recent ideas that suggest its resolution.
