A Century of Quantum Mechanics


Abstract:


Quantum Mechanics is approximately one hundred years old and has proven to be the most successful theoretical framework in the history of physics. In this talk I review the present status of quantum mechanics and the remarkable success of quantum field theory, as demonstrated by the standard model of particle physics. Finally I discuss the challenges that we face in realizing the goal of unifying all the forces of nature including gravity.... Refreshments after the lecture!
