The students taking this course will need only the basic knowledge in quantum theory (states, observables, operators, eigenvalues, density formalism). This corresponds to the successfully completed course F5030 Introduction to Quantum Mechanics or equivalent. No pre-knowledge in particle physics is required.

The student will get a deeper insight to the connection of entanglement, Bell inequalities, high energy physics and symmetry.
This series of talks will tackle very fundamental questions in modern quantum theory and relate them to some of the most fundamental questions in particle physics. For example it will be shown that a Bell inequality, detecting the nonlocality of quantum mechanics, is related to the observed tiny difference between matter and antimatter, the so called CP violation explored in particle physics. Herewith two different powerful concepts in physics, entanglement or its manifestation and symmetry, become surprisingly related. Further I will discuss decoherence models, entanglement measures, quantum marking and eraser procedures, i.e. the kaonic quantum eraser, Bohr’s complementary relation and Berry phases for quantum systems other than ordinary matter and light. In particular I will provide novel insights into quantum theory by studying system at different energy scales.
Theoretical lectures with exercises.
To finish the course successfully, participation in the lectures will be required and the exercises must be completed.
The course will be taught at the end of the Spring semester 2010, probably in the week 10. - 14. May, in the block form (3 hours/day, Monday - Friday). The exact times and location will be announced well in advance.
