## The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Quantum Physics in Modern Mathematics

As the old saying goes, the laws of the Universe are written in the language of mathematics. This sentence often ascribed to Galileo illustrates the deep connection between physics and mathematics. When it comes to mathematics, as used by physicists, we often view it as simply a tool required to describe ideas in physics. But […]

## Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity

In this talk at the Perimeter Institute Dr. Subir Sachdev presents the topic of quantum entanglement and its role in the physics of superconductivity. In particular, Dr. Sachdev will discuss the frontiers in the experimental study of high temperature superconductivity and how it is connected to the bizarre quantum behaviour in black holes. For more high […]

## Physics News of the Week: 2-D Holograms and Spooky Entanglement

The last week of summer is almost done and Physics Database is here to summarize the top physics events. Here are the top 3 physics stories from this week, including the links. For more news visit our news section or register for our email newsletter. 1. Do We Live in a 2-D Hologram? (August 26) Do […]

## Cambridge University: Quantum Field Theory

Ok so it seems like a good time to update the lecture section. Here we have a full course on quantum field theory. Ed Witten, when asked about quantum field theory, described it as the hardest theory in modern physics by far. However my friends, don’t be discouraged, there are plenty of great resources online […]

## Quantum Physics and Reality

In this full length program experienced physicists gather together to discuss the history and the evolution of the field of quantum mechanics. Teleportation, quantum tunneling, wave-particle duality and quantum entanglement are the best known examples of the bizarre nature of the quantum world. As bizarre as these concepts sound, they are at the core of […]

## The History of Quantum Physics

Here we have a nice playlist of 6 videos introducing the main principles and the history of quantum physics. This includes an introduction to the structure of atoms, the wave function, the wave-particle duality, elementary particles and the uncertainty principle. For more similar videos visit The Science Channel and the links below. To receive similar […]

## Physics News of the Week: Challenging the Uncertainty Principle, New Physics Tools in Biology

This week new physics tools have been developed to help out biologists, CERN scientists announced that they are planning a new particle accelerator and quantum scientist challenged Heisenberg’s principle. Here’s a short summary of these news, plus some links for extra reading. To receive these news straight to your email, visit this link. 1. Challenging […]

## Seeking Supersymmetry

Here we have a recent talk from the 30th Chaos Communication Congress on the problem of supersymmetry. So the idea of supersymmetry basically assumes that there’s a yet unobserved symmetry of nature and implies that for each known type of elementary particle there exists a partner particle none of which has been detected up to today. In […]
