Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
An introduction to the basic mathematics and concepts needed to see why quantum mechanics raises philosophical issues, and a discussion of some questions about quantum entanglement. A basic understanding of the issues calls for mathematics, though less than you might expect. There are no specific mathematical prerequisites, but a taste for abstraction will be essential. Ideally, students should be comfortable at least with the material in MATH107 (Mathematical modeling and probability).
