Event Description

Quantum physics tells us how the universe works. It is humankind’s most fundamental scientific theory. What is it about? How does it work? What are its main ideas? What is the evidence for it? Is it as paradoxical as it first appears to be? This course will be based on the instructor’s non-technical book Tales of the Quantum published by the Oxford University Press, available in hard cover or Kindle. The course will cover such topics as: what is a “quantum,” perfect randomness, quantum states, being in two places at once, entanglement, and non-local action-at-a-distance. Although the course is directed at non-scientists, scientists are welcome. No scientific or mathematical background is needed, only curiosity. The course will cover Chapters 1 through 9 of the book, which can be purchased in hard cover for $22-29, or on Kindle for $10. Enrollees should buy the book and bring it to each session, reading the appropriate chapters in advance of each class session.
