PhysicsFM - Quantum Paradoxes 8 - Measurement and Compensation Jim and Randy discuss how "compensation forces" allow measurements of non-canonical variables without the difficulties discovered in the previous episode. They also discuss why some very important concepts of classical physics -- velocity and the elec... |

PhysicsFM - Quantum Paradoxes 7 - Quantum Measurements - Jim Rantschler and Randy Morrison Randy and Jim talk about measurements of quantum systems, specifically in terms of a paradox involving the measurement of the velocity. This includes a long discussion of the von Neumann model of quantum mechanics. |

PhysicsFM - Quantum Paradoxes 5 - Modular Variables - Randy Morrison and Jim Rantschler Randy and Jim discuss modular variables and how looking at an infinite number of slits in a diffraction grating can better elucidate the process of quantum interference than the two-slit experiment. |

PhysicsFM - Quantum Paradoxes 4 - Phases and Gauges - Randy Morrison and Jim Rantschler Jim and Randy talk about two paradoxes that help describe the Aharonov-Bohm effect. This requires an excursion into the gauge invariance of the vector potential of electrodynamics -- and how that gauge has real effects in quantum theory, even though i... |
