Keynote address: Lena Zuchowski (University of Salzburg), “On the Faithfulness of Chaotic Models”

Over the past decades, philosophers of physics and others have made important contributions to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physical theories by critically analyzing how the mathematical structures of such theories inform central philosophical concerns, and in some cases by proving new theorems of high philosophical interest. This conference, the fourth in a series, aims to bring together physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers of physics working on such technical issues. The event will immediately precede a workshop on "Field Theories" taking place on April 1-2, 2016.

Organizing committee:
Nora Boyd (University of Pittsburgh)
Hans Halvorson (Princeton University)
John D. Norton (University of Pittsburgh)
Giovanni Valente (University of Pittsburgh)
Jim Weatherall (UC Irvine)
