The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Quantum Physics in Modern Mathematics

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Quantum Physics in Modern Mathematics

| June 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

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

Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity

| October 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Seeking Supersymmetry

Seeking Supersymmetry

| January 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]
