Nobel Laurate Lecture by professor David Gross:
A Century of Quantum Mechanics
2. October 2013
— Quantum Mechanics is approximately one hundred years old and has proven to be the most successful theoretical framework in the history of physics. In this talk I review the present status of quantum mechanics and the remarkable success of quantum field theory, as demonstrated by the standard model of particle physics. Finally I discuss the challenges that we face in realizing the goal of unifying all the forces of nature including gravity.
The lecture is followed by a reception where everybody is welcome. Registration is required.
