The practical objective of improving steam engines led to an impressive level of abstract thinking during the development of thermodynamics.


Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 10:30

A major theme in current theoretical physics is understanding the implications of quantum mechanics for the dynamics of composite systems. When sub-systems interact, they naturally become correlated.

Who can fail to be impressed by the grand sweep of spiral arms across the face of a galaxy?  Look deeper and galaxies also pose fascinating problems in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics.

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


Saturday, February 18, 2017 - 10:30

The flow of liquids and gases is described by the Navier-Stokes equation


Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 10:30

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.
