Description

Quantum fluids and the ultracool universe

The Inaugural Lecture of Professor Patrick Öhberg, Professor in Physics, Heriot-Watt University

It is remarkable that Nature can be described using mathematics. Equally intriguing is the observation that many physical phenomena, both at the microscopic and the macroscopic level, follow similar universal mathematical models. So we can hope to gain knowledge about phenomena which are intractable, both from a theoretical and experimental aspect, by studying well controlled and accessible analogue systems.

In his lecture Professor Öhberg will ask what quantum fluids can teach us about the universe we live in? We will take a journey; starting with quantum physics at near absolute zero temperature, connecting these phenomena to the absolute opposite end of the spectrum and high-energy physics, and finally arriving at the large scale structure of the universe and cosmology. Keeping us on the right track will be the quantum fluid!
