The Infinitely Large and Infinitely Small University of Bordeaux
This course looks at some modern questions in physics linked tosubatomic particles and how they manifest themselves at very large andsmall scales. One of the foremost questions in physics is the nature of dark matterwhich indeed represents one of the most promising openings to gobeyond the standard model of particles. So far, all searches havebeen unsuccessful. Classes will cover the reasons for believing thatsuch matter exists - all reasons coming from observations of verylarge-scale phenomena - and then what it could be.
- First Bachelor year in science. - B2 level of English.
Continuous assessment: oral presentations.
- The course commences with a presentation of basic mathematicaltools useful for the course and more generally for scientificinvestigation. - The second part of the course explores the use of subatomicparticles and their wave functions in quantum computing and quantumchemistry.The new techniques and their advantages in computing speedand storage capacity are explained, along with the potential problems.
Integrated lectures and a group project (in groups of 2 or 3).
