Digging further into the conceptual foundations of Quantum Physics
What you’ll learn
- More on the conceptual foundations of Quantum Physics.
- Quantum Theory without falling into oversimplifications or hyped versions and yet conceived for an audience of non-physicists.
- Pauli’s exclusion principle, Feynman path integrals and diagrams, Aharonov-Bohm effect, quantum Zeno effect, Bell’s theorem, the ‘which-way’ and quantum eraser experiments, interaction free experiments, Wheeler’s delayed choice experiment, quantum teleportation (quantum computing, quantum cryptography and the interpretations of quantum mechanics is coming soon).
- The Udemy course “Quantum Physics: an overview of a weird world (Basics)”.
- Some lectures resort to beginners level math, in few cases high school mathematical basics, but no university level required.
- In case you need a mathematical refresh an appendix will help you to recall some elementary mathematical concepts (Pythagorean theorem, square root, exponential, sin/cos functions, Cartesian coordinates, vectors, intuitive concept of a derivative, basic notion of a complex number).
This is a supplement and continuation of the Udemy course “Quantum Physics: an overview of a weird world (Basics)”. The first part furnished the basics of Quantum Physics, this part dwells deeper into other aspects. Topics addressed are the stability and solidity of matter, the Bell’s inequality and Bell theorem, the Aharonov-Bohm effect, Feynman path integrals and Feynman diagrams, and the quantum Zeno effect, the ‘which-way’ and quantum eraser experiments, interaction free experiments and Wheeler’s delayed choice experiment and quantum teleportation (an intro to quantum computing, quantum cryptography and the interpretations of quantum mechanics is coming soon). It may also be interesting for physicists who want to deepen their conceptual foundations that conventional college do not deliver.
Who this course is for:
- Everyone who is passionate about science and/or philosophy of science and is curious about the laws and the nature of the material universe.
- The course is well suited for all those university students who do not have sufficient mathematical background to go through a high-level QM course, but would like to assimilate the basics of quantum physics for the purpose of additional research. For instance philosophers, historians of science, IT students, engineers.
