For my last ever pure postgraduate seminar I wanted to speak about a topic that was both related to my thesis and yet completely wild and ambitiously absurd. After some thought, and more than a few beers, I had a "brilliant" idea:
I will show that the Monster group and its sporadic friends hold the key to proving the Theory of Everything.
Come along on Friday and we'll see how that plan works out! At the very least there should be some interesting deviations into groups, algebras, modular functions and string theory.
