Quantum Mechanics

One of our own members, Dr Martin Lavelle, Associate Professor (Reader), School of Computing and Mathematics, gave us an introductory talk about quantum mechanics at our main meeting in April. He started by discussing both the personalities and discoveries that led to the formulation of the theories that describe the behaviour of matter at the quantum level, and then described, at a high level, what that behaviour looks like.  It was a fascinating talk that fully illustrated the weirdness of the quantum world.
