Wednesday, February 6, 2013 — 8:00 PM EST

There will be a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome. In the event of bad weather, the observing will not be possible, but the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead.

Please meet in room 308 of the Physics building for the talk. The start time is 8pm during Winter months (November to March inclusive) and 9pm for the rest of the year (April to October inclusive).

Abstract

Is predictability a fundamental feature of natural reality?  If so, then the future of both particles and waves should be deterministic.  Here I show that this notion of determinism implies that quantum objects such as photons are not real.

Abstract

Are quantum objects such as photons real? If so, they should either be waves or particles, but not both. Here I show this notion of reality implies nature is fundamentally unpredictable.
