This introduction to quantum mechanics will focus on the “spooky” and stranger things of the quantum world. Using only basic algebra, we will cover topics in quantum superposition, wave-particle duality, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and Schrodinger’s famous, half-alive/half-dead cat. More advanced topics, such as entanglement, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect, and the quantum erasure will also be touched on.

Professor Andrew N. Jordan is an expert in quantum physics, with more than 100 scientific publications. He has taught “quantum strangeness” to high school students over a week-long class, every summer for the past decade. He is currently on sabbatical from the University of Rochester, visiting Chapman.

The event will take place in Chapman University's Argyros Forum, room 212.
