Members of the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics host a morning of Theoretical Physics roughly three times a year on a Saturday morning. The mornings consist of three talks pitched to explain an area of our research to an audience familiar with physics at about the second-year undergraduate level and are open to all Oxford Alumni. Topics include Quantum Mechanics, Black Holes, Dark Matter, Plasma, Particle Accelerators and The Large Hadron Collider.
Holography explains why black hole horizons have thermodynamic and hydrodynamic properties and inspires researchers to re-visit foundations and explore limits of relativistic hydrodynamics Since the work of Bekenstein, Hawking and others in the early 1970s, it was known that the laws of black...
Can we apply hydrodynamics to systems with extensively many conservation laws Can we apply hydrodynamics to systems with extensively many conservation laws
What is hydrodynamics and why does it apply over 20 orders of magnitude in energy and length. Welcome, Prof Julia Yeomans FRS, Head of Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics
Why Hydrodynamics? Prof Steve Simon
