SCIAMA LECTURE | Quantum Mechanics and Reality: the Schism in Modern Physics, from 1927 to the Present Day

Wednesday, 16 October, 2019

Quantum mechanics is singular among physical theories in that it does not make clear statements about what actually exists. Physicist Antony Valentini of  Clemson University will discuss how the uncertainty principle and 'quantum superposition' appear to challenge conventional ideas about reality and how these challenges may be overcome by a theory of 'hidden variables' containing a wealth of potentially new and radical physics.
