A grasshopper's quantum leap, mentoring medical physicists, synchrotron is extremely brilliant - Physics World Weekly Podcast
Manage episode 270522606 series 2352990
A grasshopper lands at a random location on a patch of lawn and then jumps a fixed distance in a random direction. What shape of lawn has the highest probability of retaining the grasshopper after its jump?
In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, we talk to a quartet of physicists and mathematicians that have made a remarkable connection between this “grasshopper problem” and Bell’s theorem of quantum physics.
