Abstract:
*

I will give an introduction to Causal Fermion Systems (CFS), a novel
candidate for a unified theory of physics.

*
CFS provides a rigorous mathematical framework that merges the language of
Quantum Theory and General Relativity in a novel way. This is achieved by
encoding all the properties of our physical world in the texture of
correlations between the fundamental (fermionic) degrees of freedom.
*

*
The systematic study of spacetime correlations enables an identification of
points in a classical spacetime with elements in an operator manifold. The
causal structure as well as the physical principles governing the dynamics
in the theory are recovered from the eigenvalues of these operators. On the
level of an effective description of our reality in terms of established
theories, CFS gives rise to the emergence of the (causal) structure of
spacetime and is at the origin of the fundamental interactions of the
standard model of particle physics.
*

*
The goal is to provide you with a qualitative understanding of how CFS gives
rise to a new mechanism for baryogenesis.
