PUBLIC LECTURE – 28 November 2019

November 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The quest for new physics Professor Raymond Volkas, School of Physics, The University of Melbourne The standard model of particle physics is an extremely successful theory, but we know that it is an incomplete description of nature. I will review the evidence for “new physics”: interactions and particles that extend the standard model. The evidence ranges from the experimental detection of neutrino masses through the existence of dark matter to puzzles such as the lack of antimatter in the universe…

Philosophy for Science Making Sense of the Physical World

February 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Learning with STEM:What the WORLD Must be Like: Science used to be ‘Natural Philosophy’ until the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries saw a parting of ways. Science became increasingly empirical – performing experiments and recording findings – while Philosophy remained contemplative – pondering the principles of logic, knowledge, ethics and politics, and struggling to make sense of the human condition. Today, both disciplines can claim significant achievements for both new technologies and improved understanding, but they also…

No qualms about quantum theory

February 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Venue: Physics Lecture Theatre 1, Sandy Bay Campus Summary: Professor Berge Englert will argue that quantum theory is a well-defined local theory with a clear interpretation. Presenter(s): Professor Berge Englert Quantum theory has been singularly successful in the almost one-hundred years since its foundations were laid by Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, Max Born, Paul Dirac, and others. Nevertheless, there is a debate – seemingly never ending – about the so-called “measurement problem” and other perceived problems.…
