COLLOQUIUM: Dr. Djordje Minic

You are cordially invited to the IPB COLLOQUIUM which will be held on Friday, 13 July 2018 at 12:00 in the “Zvonko Marić” lecture hall of the Institute of Physics Belgrade.

The talk entitled:

Manifest quantum non-locality in quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and quantum gravity

will be given by Prof. Dr. Djordje Minic (Department of Physics, Virginia Tech, USA).

Abstract:

In this talk we will discuss manifest quantum non-locality in quantum mechanics while concentrating on the essential features of any quantum theory, such as linear superposition and entanglement. We will reveal the hidden quantum space-time geometry behind this non-locality, that is also consistent with causality. We will then illustrate how this same quantum space-time geometry appears in the context of quantum gravity, and finally, discuss the meaning of such quantum non-locality in the context of quantum field theory, while pointing out a new generic prediction that follows from this novel view on quantum theory.
