Quantum entanglement, connectivity and the quantum gravity problem. Colloquia dei XL

On Thursday December 21 at 11:00 am Prof. Francesco De Martini will present the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) Argument, which in the year 1935 gives rise to the chapter of Physics called: “Quantum Nonlocality,” or: “Quantum Entanglement,” a deeply counterintuitive theoretical paradigm. This paradigm evolves within modern physics mainly through the theoretical work of Erwin Schroedinger and John S. Bell (around the 1970s) to finally conclude with the first successful experimental verification by Alain Aspect’s group (1983) at the Institut d’Optique in Orsay. Recently EPR Work has been associated by Leonard Susskind with another work by Einstein and Nathan Rosen from 1935. The topic (EPR=ER) involves “connectivity” between distant places in space-time via “wormholes” in the context of General Relativity (GR). The important developments of this association within the fundamental “Quantum Gravity” problem will also be the subject of the Seminar.

Prof. Francesco De Martini, formerly Professor of Quantum Information at Sapienza University of Rome, is a member of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, and was awarded the prestigious Matteucci Medal by the Accademia dei XL in 2023.

The conference will be held on the Zoom platform. Write to segreteria@accademiaxl.it to receive login credentials.
