PIRSA:C10055 - ISSYP 2010PODCAST Subscribe to podcast

The ISSYP is an exciting and challenging two-week program for Canadian and international high school students with a keen interest in theoretical physics and who intend to pursue a degree in physics at the university level. This summer school super-charges potential "Einsteins" with: Presentations by Perimeter Institute researchers on cutting edge theoretical physics – hot topics such as superstring theory, quantum computing and dark matter. Opportunities to work with leading international theoretical physicists in small group mentoring sessions. Lab tours and other activities with like-minded students from around the globe. Insights into their own potential as possible future researchers in theoretical physics.

ISSYP 2010 - The Strange Quantum: What does it mean and how can we use it?
Speaker(s): Robert Spekkens
Abstract: Put two physicists in a room and ask them to talk about the interpretation of quantum mechanics. This is a recipe for disagreement; the mysteries of quantum theory run so deep that it

Adventures in Superstrings
Speaker(s): Robert Myers
Abstract: Physics emerged from the twentieth century with two remarkably successful descriptions of nature which stand in striking contrast. Quantum mechanics describes the subatomic realm with intrinsic uncertainties and probabilities. On the other hand, Einstein's general relativity describe gravitational p... read more
