    "Quantum Fuzz"
    Quantum physics is, arguably, the greatest success story of contemporary science. Yet, it remains one of the most counterintuitive theories that bewildered the minds of the greatest 20th century thinkers. It continues to baffle us today, even while we apply its ideas in modern technology. Vatche Sahakian, Harvey Mudd College associate professor of physics, outlines the main principles of quantum theory, describes what it helps us understand about the microscopic world, and discusses the puzzles to which it leads.

    This public lecture is aimed at a general audience on ideas at the forefront of modern theoretical physics. We will talk about the philosophical underpinnings of modern physics; the fuzzy world as described by quantum mechanics; black holes and the skewing of space and time by motion and energy; the latest perspectives on cosmology and our universe, and the puzzles they lead us to; and finally we will touch upon new ideas from string theory and the frontiers of physics. Visual interactive simulations will be used in lieu of equations and mathematics. The target audience includes anyone with a high school education.
