The work and philosophy of the 2020 Nobel Laureate in Physics Sir Roger Penrose has influenced a whole generation of scientists and intellectuals and has also inspired the general public worldwide. His work spans a wide range of topics in mathematics, physics and philosophy. This Special Collection aims at gathering reviews and original research on topics involving quantum theory that have been inspired by Roger Penrose’s work. This includes theoretical and experimental work on gravitational induced collapse, black hole physics, Twistor theory, and physics at the interplay of quantum theory and general relativity.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Black holes
- wavefunction collapse
- twistor theory
- quantum theory
- general relativity
