The Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University presents an online discussion between Dr. Rob Spekkens (Perimeter Institute) and Dr. Matthew Leifer (co-Director of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman) on quantum causality. Robert Spekkens received his B.Sc. in physics and philosophy from McGill University and completed his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Toronto. He held a postdoctoral fellowship at Perimeter Institute and an International Royal Society Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. He has been a faculty member at Perimeter Institute since November 2008. His research is focused upon identifying the conceptual innovations that distinguish quantum theories from classical theories and investigating their significance for axiomatization, interpretation, and the implementation of various information-theoretic tasks. His recent work includes new approaches to understanding causality in quantum mechanics and beyond. The conversation will be broadcast live on YouTube at https://rebrand.ly/IQSSpekkens There will be an opportunity for audience Q&A after the event.
By Professor Matt Leifer The Institute for Quantum Studies congratulates Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger for receiving the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/physics/2022/summary/. The citation says that they are awarded the prize “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science” Personally, I am
Wednesday, 7 September 2022 @ 10 AM in 149 Keck Center, or join us on Zoom. Abstract:I will show how to generalize superoscillations to arbitrary observables in quantum mechanics. Super phenomena of total angular momentum and energy will be described. Using the example of a sequence of harmonic oscillators, I will demonstrate that high energy
