This necessary physics goes beyond our standard cosmology and the standard model of particle physics. In this talk, I provide a pedagogical introduction to cosmic inflation,
Wednesday, 8 December @ 7PM in 404 Beckman Hall Abstract: In this talk we will explore the improvisational and musical nature of mathematics and physics.
Location: Room 149 of the Keck Center Time and Date: Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 4pm. https://chapman.zoom.us/j/99926295635?pwd=Vlgwd0wvM1VwV0xQcHNmMHM1UWdvZz09 Meeting ID: 999 2629 5635 Abstract: Physical advantages to building a quantum computer out of optical frequency photons include: they suffer negligible environment decoherence even at room temperature, there is no cross talk, they network easily into arbitrary
Professor Todd Brun will be visiting from USC and giving a seminar next Monday, October 25th at 12PM in Room 149 of the Keck Center (the Dean’s Suite Conference Room). The talk will also be live on Zoom: https://chapman.zoom.us/j/95649186660?pwd=QTVzZ1FlSm55NU9SaUFwTmpzUms2UT09 Title: Quantum field theories in discrete spacetimes Abstract: Quantum walks (QWs) are unitary analogues of classical
Friday, 5 November @ 3PM in Memorial Hall Auditorium In the constellation of Eridanus there lurks a cosmic mystery, as if something has taken a huge bite out of the universe, leaving a supervoid. Could it be an enormous black hole, another universe, or an expanding vacuum bubble, destined to annihilate everything in existence? That
Wednesday October 13, 8:30am PDT (California Time) https://rebrand.ly/IQSHossenfelder The Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University presents an online discussion between Dr. Sabine Hossenfelder (Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies) and Dr. Matthew Leifer (Institute for Quantum Studies, Chapman University). Dr. Hossenfelder’s research focusses on the foundations of physics, including quantum gravity, physics beyond
Wednesday October 6, 6pm PDT (California Time) The Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University presents an online discussion between Dr. Roderick Sutherland (University of Sydney, Australia) and Dr. Matthew Leifer (Institute for Quantum Studies, Chapman University). Dr. Sutherland is a leading advocate of theories involving retrocausation (backwards-in-time influences) as a resolution for the problems
Wednesday, 22 September, 2021 @ 530PM in 208 Argyros Forum Action at a distance is a miracle. Quantum phenomena such as interaction-free measurements, teleportation, Bell-type correlations apparently require such miracles. Accepting the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics avoids the necessity of action at a distance and thus removes paradoxes from quantum theory. Outside visitors to
Wednesday, 24 March, 2021 @ 5 PM The Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University presents an online discussion between Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (University of New Hampshire) and Dr. Matthew Leifer (co-Director of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman). Dr. Prescod-Weinstein is an assistant professor of physics and astronomy and core faculty in women’s
