What we undergrad students (at least I did for a long time) take for granted is that Bell’s inequality proofs there is for sure no deterministic theory of quantum mechanics. Is it really that “easy”? Maybe it’s pretty naive to accept the Copenhagen Interpretation without further thinking. Tim Maudlin who studied philosophy and physics at Yale University explains why we should consider less conventional “interpretations” of quantum physics.

You can find his corresponding paper here.

Brian Greene is going to do this new video series from tomorrow onwards – I think it’s worth it to check it out 🙂

Btw do you know why Brian Greene is an extraordinary cool physicist? Because he’s vegan 😉

How does one get this idea [for the proof]? The answer is: I don’t know! It is like asking: How did Michelangelo do this?

Happy Pi Day to the math fellows out there!

Tomorrow is my quantum physics exam – instead of panicking I try to embrace the beauty of the time dependent Schrödinger equation in position space. 

Just my summary of classical mechanics that made me pass the exam in the first semester. Nostalgia.
