Looking forward to this! Closes with a panel discussion on Quantum Foundations with Paweł Horodecki, Ivette Fuentes de Gilmore, Robert Spekkens, and me.

Can't get enough of quantum theory? NEITHER CAN WE! Watch Carlo's most recent Ri talk, on the birth of quantum physics:

Here's something that I'd been looking for for 20 years: a clear and detailed explanation, suitable for an advanced physics undergrad, of whether Dirac's belt trick is _really_ an illustration of the kinematics of spin-1/2 particles. via
