When water waves act up: hydrodynamic laser and quantum analogues
Tue, 19 Jul 2016, 18:00
Paul Milewski, University of Bath
Water waves have been studied for centuries and are an endless source of fascination and difficult mathematical problems. In this talk we discuss how some recent work has shown that water waves can mimic behavior of wave phenomena at two ends of the physics spectrum: extremely high energy lasers and quantum phenomena. We expect this second analogue to help discern what behaviors in quantum mechanics are truly unique to the quantum world.
Doors open 17:30. The talk will start at 18:00
The talk will be followed by an informal reception to which ticket holders are invited.
