PIRSA:16060042  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Finally making sense of Quantum Mechanics, part 2
Speaker(s): Yakir Aharonov
Abstract:
Date: 21/06/2016 - 9:00 am

PIRSA:16060043  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Curiosity
Speaker(s): Andrew Briggs
Abstract: Curiosity about how the world works can lead to beneficial progress in technology, and vice-versa. This kind of interplay can be found in quantum nanoscience, where foundationally motivated experiments and technologically motivated experiments often use similar materials and techniques, because both... read more

PIRSA:16060046  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Higher order topological actions
Speaker(s): Roman Buniy
Abstract: In classical mechanics, an action is defined only modulo additive terms which do not modify the equations of motion; in certain cases, these terms are topological quantities. We construct an infinite sequence of higher order topological actions and argue that they play a role in quantum mechanics, a... read more

PIRSA:16060047  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Phase Space Methods in Quantum Mechanics and Weak Values.
Speaker(s): Gus Lobo
Abstract: Phase space methods are ubiquitous in quantum mechanics. From the Weyl-Wigner Moyal formalism to coherent states and discrete phase spaces we see the imprints of the classical world again and again. In this presentation, we address one of two major developments introduced by Aharonov and his coll... read more

PIRSA:16060048  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Gauge invariant nonlocal nonlocal quantum dynamics of the Aharonov-Bohm effect and how it may be tested
Speaker(s): Tirzah Kaufherr
Abstract: The gauge invariant nonlocal quantum dynamics that is responsible for the Aharonov-Bohm effect is described. It is shown that it may be verified experimentally.

PIRSA:16060050  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Ubiquity of Weak Values
Speaker(s): Alonso Botero
Abstract: In this brief talk we will show how weak values appear in a wide range of physical contexts beyond the usual context of weak measurements. Among others, we will discuss how weak values appear in: the physics of classical parameters in a quantum evolution; the statistics of strong measurements; formu... read more

PIRSA:16060055  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantized Vector Potential and the Magnetic Aharonov-Bohm Effect
Speaker(s): Philip Pearle
Abstract: The state vector describing the physical situation of the magnetic A-B effect should depend upon all three quantizeable entities in the problem, the electron orbiting the solenoid, the moving charged particles in the solenoid and the vector potential. One may imagine three approximate solutions to t... read more
