Three times a year, members of the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics host a Saturday Morning of Theoretical Physics.


Open to all Oxford alumni, these events centre around three talks given by leading theoretical physicists. The talks are pitched at a second-year undergraduate level and aim to explain an area of current research to an audience familiar with physics.

Information about all previous Saturday Mornings of Theoretical Physics can be found on the Events page so you can watch if you have missed one.

The properties of all forms of matter, from the most mundane to the most exotic kinds produced in advanced laboratories, are consequences of the laws of quantum mechanics. Understanding how macroscopic behaviour emerges from microscopic laws in a system of many particles is one of the intellectually most demanding, yet most important, challenges of physics, and is the subject of this series of lectures.
