Department of Physics Colloquium

Monday, March 1, 2021 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

General Physics Colloquium, Professor Carl Bender, Washington University

Title:  PT Symmetry

Host:  Veit Elser and Ben Gregory

Abstract:  By using complex-variable methods one can extend conventional Hermitian quantum theories into the complex domain. The result is a huge and exciting new class of parity-time-symmetric (PT-symmetric) theories whose remarkable physical properties are currently under intense study by theorists and experimentalists. Many theoretical predictions have been verified in recent beautiful laboratory experiments.
