Tuesday 08 Oct 2013MAGIC special lecture: Quantum Mechanics and Topology

Prof Jonathan Keating FRS - University of Bristol

Laver LT3 15:00-16:00

Abstract: I will give a gentle introduction to some deep and important quantum phenomena associated with topology. The first is the Aharonov-Bohm effect, and the second is quantum statistics for identical particles. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics will be assumed. I will go on to discuss some new work on quantum statistics in discrete spaces associated with recent developments in characterizing their topology.
