The University of Cape Town
invites you to an inaugural lecture
by Professor Jeff Murugan
Topic: The Future is Quantum – a random walk in the landscape of mathematical physics.
The early 20th century brought with it a revolution that was as profound as the first Industrial Revolution; quantum mechanics demonstrated that the world at atomic scales was vastly different from what we experience everyday. It paved the way for a new understanding of the Universe, and most of the technological advances that have become integrated into our lives. Today, we lie at the precipice of a second quantum revolution that promises equally profound changes to human societies. I will describe how work at UCT fits into this new future.
