Quanta, Uncertainty, and a Cat
Lecture no. 21 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts
Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Quantum mechanics is full of strange contradictions, including a cat that is simultaneously alive and dead. Professor Viskontas introduces you to the Copenhagen Interpretation—the most popular (though still not universally accepted) way to think about this field. You’ll also consider some of quantum mechanics’ remarkable applications, from nanoscience to quantum computing.
