CiE 2019 — 15th Conference on Computability in Europe,
15 Jul 2019 - 19 Jul 2019 • Durham, United Kingdom
CiE 2019 is the 15th conference organized by CiE (Computability in Europe), a European association of mathematicians, logicians, computer scientists, philosophers, physicists and others interested in new developments in computability and their underlying significance for the real world. The CiE conferences serve as an interdisciplinary forum for research in all aspects of computability, foundations of computer science, logic, and theoretical computer science, as well as the interplay of these areas with practical issues in computer science and with other disciplines such as biology, mathematics, philosophy, or physics.
Lecture — The Most Important Experiment in Physics: The Double Slit Experiment
05 Dec 2019 • Lennard Jones Laboratories, Keele University, United Kingdom
Institute of Physics – IOP
The most important experiments in Physics, you can easily reproduce by yourself. This includes Galileo's free fall experiment, Archimedes' buoyancy (Eureka) and Eratosthenes' cast shadow from the Sun at its zenith. One of these timeless breakthroughs of the human mind into the secrets of the Universe - the double-slit experiment - ranks well above all the others, if only because, although equally simple, it still baffles Physicists to this day. It was so subversive by the time Young proposed it that Newton waited for him to die before publishing his Opticks. In this talk, Prof. Laussy will discuss why and what it has to tell us about the World we live in, from whether "things" are waves or particles, to the nature of reality.
Lecture starts at 19:00, FREE tea & coffee available. These talks are open to everyone and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP.
