How quantum physics democratized music: a meditation on physics and technology

Wednesday 26 October 2016, at 7:30 AM - 8:45 PM
National Waterfront Museum Swansea,

Connections between physics and technological invention and aspects of human life that seem far from science are both unexpected and unexpectedly common. And rather than flowing one way – from physics to gadgets – the connections form an intricate web, linking all aspects of human culture, in a way that frustrates our convenient divisions into compartments.

In the lecture, Professor Sir Michael Berry FRS will discuss this theme not abstractly but with examples, ranging from music to the colour of gold, and explain how quantum physics helps him  do quantum physics.
