Tuesday 2nd December, 2014 15:00-16:00 Maths 203


The quantum world is a mysterious and in many ways counterintuitive one.  I shall illustrate this with five conceptual questions and some surprising answers:

1.  do photons interfere with each other?  

2.  what can we measure?  

3.  what can we know?  

4. if a tree falls in a forest and there is nobody to hear it, does it make a noise?  

5. Are energy and momentum always conserved?
