Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium

Topic: 
Entanglement and Complexity: Gravity and Quantum Mechanics
Tuesday, November 3, 2015 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Venue: 
Hewlett 201
Speaker: 
Leonard Susskind (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 
I will try to explain how it is that gravity and quantum information theory have come together to create a new way of thinking about physical systems. From fluid dynamics to strange metals to black holes to the foundations of quantum mechanics, almost all areas of physics are being touched by the new paradigm.

Held Tuesdays at 4:30 pm in the William R. Hewlett Teaching Center, room 201.

Refreshments in the lobby of Varian Physics at 4:15 pm.

 

Autumn 2015/2016, Committee: A, Linde (Chair), S. Chu, P. Hayden, M. Schnitzer, L. Senatore
