Modern Theoretical Physics

The old Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics associated with Niels Bohr is giving way to a more profound interpretation based on the idea of quantum entanglement. Entanglement not only replaces the obsolete notion of the collapse of wave function but it is also the basis for Bell's famous theorem, the new paradigm of quantum computing, and finally the widely discussed "Many Worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics of Everett.This course consists of parts I and III of a three part, year-long course series, but each course stands on its own and serves to look at some of the basics of quantum mechanics, entangement, Bell's theorem, elements of quantum computing, quantum teleportation, and similar material.
