Members of the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics host a morning of Theoretical Physics roughly three times a year on a Saturday morning. The mornings consist of three talks pitched to explain an area of our research to an audience familiar with physics at about the second-year undergraduate level and are open to all Oxford Alumni. Topics include Quantum Mechanics, Black Holes, Dark Matter, Plasma, Particle Accelerators and The Large Hadron Collider.

Nedward Simmons is living a regular Earth life when he stumbles across an artifact from an alien civilization. Its protective powers are more intriguing than useful to him, until the aliens themselves arrive. Unable to hand over the power he has unwittingly acquired, Ned decides instead to travel with them in an attempt to defeat the Anacron army, which threatens their freedom. But Ned soon learns that his Plasma Crystal is not the only source of mysterious power in the galaxy. Ned and his c ...
 
A vet-led podcast discussing military science fiction. We try to edit out the cursing, but the general level of discussion is likely PG-13 for occasional juvenile crassness. Don't listen to us in church, you may burst into flames. PRPG, PR&PG, scifi, sci-fi

Outside of our intro memorial to the late Al Matthews, this entire episode is dedicated to that 1984 cult classic: the Last Starfighter.We mentioned a few books:Armada - Ernest Cline;Strategy Strikes Back - Max Brooks;Last Shot - Daniel Jose Older;Soundbyte info:- Aliens © Fox 1986;- Halo © Microsoft 2001;- Duck Hunt ©Nintendo 1984;- Star Trek ...…
 
In our first bonus content; Tales from the Blotter, we learn about the fate of Stormtrooper JB-007 after he failed to keep Rey prisoner.
 
Here we go with our nearly non-sequitur first episode where two of our hosts bang out some trifle chatter about "what is Military SciFi" and why are we doing this. Slight crass language warning. R2 bleeped the curses, but you shouldn't listen to this at church or work. ;) Episode rating: PG-1302:53 - Is Star Trek really military?04:35 - Klingon ...…
 
Not quite a "first" episode, more of a demo really.
 
This talk reviews the developments in quantum information processing.
 
This talk reviews testing and developing ideas in quantum computing using laser-manipulated trapped ions.
 
This talk explains how qubits are used to represent numbers in a way that permits 'quantum-mechanical parallel' computing. We show how this can used to achieve fast factorisation of large numbers, and hence the breaking of current codes. We end by explaining how entangled pairs of particles can be used to provide an alternative and entirely sec ...…
 
This talk reviews how to deal with quantum systems that are coupled to the outside world, as in reality all systems are. We first introduce density operators and explain how quantum states give rise to them. We then turn to measures of entanglement that can be computed from a density operator, and show that entanglement grows with time. Finally ...…
 
This talk reviews the modern formulation of the basic ideas of quantum mechanics. We start by explaining what quantum amplitudes are, how they lead to the idea of a quantum state and how these states evolve in time. We then discuss what happens when a measurement is made before describing correlated ('entangled') systems. Applying these ideas t ...…
 
Dr Ralph Schoenrich will talk about the chemical evolution side Spiral density waves patterns re-distribute stars throughout the entire system, making it impossible to know a star's origin from just its kinematics. However, stars are more than just points in phase space: every star is labelled with the elemental abundances of the gas cloud from ...…
 
Dr John Magorrian will talk about the dynamics of galaxy discs In galaxy discs it is energetically favourable for angular momentum to move outwards and mass to move inwards. This transportation is effected by spiral arms, but what causes them? Simple linear response calculations demonstrate that even the smallest perturbation is amplified manyf ...…
 
Prof James Binney FRS will talk about stellar systems: a new state of matter The long range of gravity means that many concepts from undergraduate statistical mechanics do not apply: energy is not extensive; there is no microcanonical or canonical ensemble. Stars and dark matter particles have long mean free paths, which means that to a very go ...…
 
In this talk, Siddharth Parameswaran discusses how a topological approach to 2D systems reveal that they can indeed become superfluid, and lead to surprising and beautiful universal results whose implications continue to resonate today. Superfluids spontaneously break a continuous symmetry linked to the conservation of particle number in a many ...…
 
Stephen Blundell reviews a theory of superconductivity that was developed in Oxford in the 1930’s by Fritz London. The idea is that under certain conditions quantum coherent effects can become manifest on a large scale. In an effect such as superconductivity, this idea can be put to use in such applications as magnetic resonance imaging, in whi ...…
 
John Chalker discusses how the laws of quantum mechanics lead us from the microscopic world to macroscopic phenomena. The notion that atoms of a given isotope are indistinguishable has profound consequences in the quantum world. For liquids made of identical bosons, indistinguishability forces the particles into a quantum condensate at low temp ...…
 
John March-Russell gives a talk about gravitational wave signals of stringy physics, a ‘soundscape’ connected to the landscape of string vacua.
 
Subir Sarkar reviews the detection of the ‘chirrup’ signal from a pair of merging massive black holes by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, as well as subsequent experimental developments.
 
James Binney gives a talk about the mathematics that describe Gravitational waves.
 
Fasten Your Seat Belts: Turbulent Flows in Nature. Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature, and it often causes us headaches both literal and metaphorical. From unpredictable weather to the mixing of milk in our coffee, Michael Barnes will talk about how turbulence arises and our ongoing struggle to control it.…
 
Ramin Golestanian will introduce you to Life at Low Reynolds number and ask how microorganisms can swim, navigate, and coordinate their activities. You will discover how the left-right symmetry is first broken in a developing embryo, and investigate the medically important question of how mucus is shifted in our lungs and what happens when thin ...…
 
Julia Yeomans will talk about fluids and flows all around us: from superhydrophobic surfaces and how animals and plants keep dry, to bouncing droplets and balloons.
 
Third lecture "More is different" - how states of matter emerge from quantum theory Saturday morning of Theoretical Physics.
