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.

Superfluidity and superconductivity -- the flow of matter or electrical current without friction -- are the two most spectacular manifestations of quantum mechanics at a macroscopic scale, and the understanding of these phenomena is one of the great achievements of quantum theory applied to systems of many particles. They continue to present new experimental and theoretical challenges today, many decades after their serendipitous discoveries in 1937 and 1911.
