The Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics
Friday Mar 22
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Reed Hall 201
The world of today is immersed in technological advances and many of these advances are reliant upon quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics was the last revolution to occur in physics, and like all revolutions, it occurred quickly. The ideas that underlie all quantum phenomena were put forth in 1925 and 1926. In this talk, Dr. Rhon Keinigs will give a historical account of birth of quantum mechanics, and the two problems that forced its inventors to abandon the very tenants of classical physics. Dr. Keinigs is a physicist who worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and retired to the New River Valley. No tickets required. Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served just prior to this talk.
