Quantum Physics is undergoing a very exciting phase of renewed discovery and insight. In these
exciting times, we find new ways of discussing non-locality, coherence,
quantum information, the wave function, decoherence, the interface to
classical physics, single particle experiments and many other issues,
including the interpretation and place of this theory.
What has happened recently ? Many things, including actual successful experiments on the EPR Paradox, evaluations of Bell's Inequality, teleportation of some elementary objects and the possibility of quantum communication, encryption and computing. There are already at least two companies commercially exploiting quantum communication. Move over the laser .... here comes the whole quantum world ! You are invited to the Toepffer Lecture series to learn more
about Quantum Information.The course will consist of 18 lectures, to be delivered on Thursdays, as a set of double lectures, starting on Thursday 30th of this month and running for 9 consecutive weeks. Each double lecture will be followed by a one hour tutorial. A basic competence with QM and Linear Algebra is assumed. Please let Mrs Monyamane know of your wish to attend by
