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 secondyear 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.

Higgs Boson

gluons
To study the Higgs boson at the LHC we also need to understand how highly energetic quarks and gluons interact, among themselves and with the Higgs. These interactions are described by quantum field theory, a beautiful mathematical framework that combines quantum mechanics with Einstein’s theory of special relativity. In recent years, our understanding of quantum field theory has progressed significantly, allowing us to develop a new generation of accurate theoretical predictions for key LHC reactions. In this talk, I will highlight some of the ideas behind this progress, and illustrate how they are being applied to investigate the Higgs sector at the LHC.

Higgs Boson
We learn about the Higgs Boson and its interactions at the LHC by examining the debris produced by colliding protons headon at unprecedented high energies. However, we know from our theory of strong interactions  quantum chromodynamics (QCD)  that protons themselves are highly complex bound states of more fundamental 'quarks', held together by the force carriers of QCD, the 'gluons'. The question is then: how do we go from the collision of these complicated protons to a theoretical prediction that we can use to test the properties of the Higgs boson itself? In this talk, I will discuss what we know about the proton, and how we apply this to LHC collisions and our understanding of the Higgs sector.

Over the past two years, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has started to directly probe a qualitatively new class of interactions, associated with the Higgs boson. These interactions, called Yukawa interactions, are unlike any other interaction that we have probed at the quantum level before.
In particular, unlike the electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, they have an interaction strength that does not come in multiples of some underlying unit charge. Yukawa interactions are believed to be of fundamental importance to the world as we know it, hypothesised, for example, to be responsible for the stability of the proton, and so the universe and life as we know it.

Kolmogorov complexity
The coding theorem from algorithmic information theory (AIT)  which should be much more widely taught in Physics!  suggests that many processes in nature may be highly biased towards simple outputs. Here simple means highly compressible, or more formally, outputs with relatively lower Kolmogorov complexity. I will explore applications to biological evolution, where the coding theorem implies an exponential bias towards outcomes with higher symmetry, and to deep learning neural networks, where the coding theorem predicts an Occam's razor like bias that may explain why these highly overparamterised systems work so well.

Active systems, from cells and bacteria to flocks of birds, harvest chemical energy which they use to move and to control the complex processes needed for life. A goal of biophysicists is to construct new physical theories to understand these living systems, which operate far from equilibrium. Topological defects are key to the behaviour of certain dense active systems and, surprisingly, there is increasing evidence that they may play a role in the biological functioning of bacterial and epithelial cells.

entropy
Siddharth Parameswaran, Associate Professor, Physics Department. The usual picture of entropy in statistical mechanics is that it quantifies our degree of ignorance about a system. Recent advances in cooling and trapping atoms allow the preparation of quantum systems with many interacting particles isolated from any external environment. Textbook discussions of entropy — that invoke the presence of a “large” environment that brings the system to thermal equilibrium at a fixed temperature  cannot apply to such systems. Sid Parameswaran will explain how “entropy” of subsystems of such isolated quantum systems arises from quantum entanglement between different parts of the system, and how their approach to thermal equilibrium is best described as the `scrambling’ of quantum information as it is transferred to nonlocal degrees of freedom.

John Chalker, Head of Theoretical Physics, gives a talk on entropy. Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics give us two alternative ways of thinking about entropy: in terms of heat flow, or in terms of the number of microstates available to a system. John Chalker will describe a physical setting to illustrate each of these. By applying thermodynamics in a realm far beyond its origins, we can use the notion of an ideal heat engine to find the temperature of a black hole. And by applying combinatorial mathematics to hydrogen bonding, we can find the entropy of ice.

Alexander Schekochihin, Professor of Theoretical Physics, gives a talk on entropy. When dealing with physical systems that contain many degrees of freedom, a researcher's most consequential realisation is of the enormous amount of detailed information about them that she does not have, and has no hope of obtaining. It turns out that this vast ignorance is not a curse but a blessing: by admitting ignorance and constructing a systematic way of making fair predictions about the system that rely only on the information that one has and on nothing else, one can get surprisingly far in describing the natural world. In an approach anticipated by Boltzmann and Gibbs and given mathematical foundation by Shannon, entropy emerges as a mathematical measure of our uncertainty about large systems and, paradoxically, a way to describe their likely behaviour—and even, some argue, the ultimate fate of the Universe. Alex Schekochihin will admit ignorance and attempt to impart some knowledge.

We first introduce density operators and explain how quantum states give rise to them. We then turn to measures of entanglement that can be computed from a density operator, and show that entanglement grows with time. Finally, we show how the interaction with the environment gives rise to the phenomenon of decoherence.

We then discuss what happens when a measurement is made before describing correlated ('entangled') systems. Applying these ideas to twostate systems ('qubits') we point out that the complexity of computing the evolution of an N qubit system grows like exp(N)

Dr Ralph Schoenrich will talk about the chemical evolution side Spiral density waves patterns redistribute stars throughout the entire system, making it impossible to know a star's origin from just its kinematics. However, stars are more than just points in phase space: every star is labelled with the elemental abundances of the gas cloud from which it was formed. Over the last few years a number of observational campaigns have started to measure these labels for millions of stars in our own Galaxy's disc. Ralph Schoenrich will describe how chemodynamical models are being used to piece together the evolution of our Galactic environment from presolar times to the present.

This transportation is effected by spiral arms, but what causes them? Simple linear response calculations demonstrate that even the smallest perturbation is amplified manyfold, while the differential rotation of the disc means that the response is stretched out into a spirallike pattern. John Magorrian will introduce the notion of the disc as a resonant cavity, within which spiral density perturbations rattle back and forth.

Prof James Binney FRS will talk about stellar systems: a new state of matter The long range of gravity means that many concepts from undergraduate statistical mechanics do not apply: energy is not extensive; there is no microcanonical or canonical ensemble. Stars and dark matter particles have long mean free paths, which means that to a very good approximation their motion is determined by the meanfield gravitational potential. James Binney will identify a hierarchy of timescales, explaining how the Boltzmann equation for the full 6Ndimensional manyparticle phase space distribution function can be reduced to an evolutionary equation of a function of a mere 3 variables that is governed by the resonances among the particles' orbital frequencies.

In this talk, Siddharth Parameswaran discusses how a topological approach to 2D systems reveal that they can indeed become superfluid, and lead to surprising and beautiful universal results whose implications continue to resonate today. Superfluids spontaneously break a continuous symmetry linked to the conservation of particle number in a manybody system. Standard lore holds that such symmetries must remain unbroken at any temperature above absolute zero in a twodimensional material, such as a thin sheet or film, apparently precluding superfluidity in such systems.

The idea is that under certain conditions quantum coherent effects can become manifest on a large scale. In an effect such as superconductivity, this idea can be put to use in such applications as magnetic resonance imaging, in which a living human patient is inserted inside a quantum coherent wave function. He will explain how coherent effects can be measured in real superconductors.

John Chalker discusses how the laws of quantum mechanics lead us from the microscopic world to macroscopic phenomena. The notion that atoms of a given isotope are indistinguishable has profound consequences in the quantum world. For liquids made of identical bosons, indistinguishability forces the particles into a quantum condensate at low temperature, where they all dance in perfect synchrony. Treated gently, such a condensate has no viscosity: once it is set in motion say around a circular pipe  flow will persist indefinitely (so long as the fluid is kept sufficiently cold!).

Third lecture "More is different"  how states of matter emerge from quantum theory Saturday morning of Theoretical Physics. With Professor Steve Simon, introduction by Professor John WheelerThird Steve Simon will focus on the recent realization that Landau’s classification, thought to be complete for most of the twentieth century, in fact misses some of the most exciting, yet subtle, physics. The new missing ingredient is naturally cast in the language of the mathematical field of topology, giving rise to a host of what we now call topological states of matter. In particular, we have now realized that fundamentally new types of electronic materials exist  some of which, in fact, have been hiding under our noses for decades!
More on this miniseries;
The properties of all forms of matter, from the most mundane to the most exotic kinds produced in advanced laboratories, are consequences of the laws of quantum mechanics. Understanding how macroscopic behaviour emerges from microscopic laws in a system of many particles is one of the intellectually most demanding, yet most important, challenges of physics, and is the subject of this series of lectures.

Second lecture "More is different"  how states of matter emerge from quantum theory Saturday morning of Theoretical Physics. With Professor Fabian Essler, introduction by Professor John Wheeler. Fabian Essler will discuss the hugely successful framework for classifying possible states of quantum matter, pioneered by the great Russian Nobel Laureate, Lev Landau. This framework is conceptually remarkably simple, but is broad enough to describe physics ranging from magnets to superconductors to fundamental physics in the guise of relativistic quantum field theory and the Higgs phenomenon.

The power of available computers has now grown exponentially for many decades. The ability to discover numerically the implications of equations and models has opened our eyes to previously hidden aspects of physics. Many exciting phenomena observed in condensed matter systems, such as superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect, emerge due to the quantum mechanical interplay of many electrons. The laws of quantum physics are governed by the Schrödinger equation, whose complexity grows exponentially with the number of particles it describes. Hence, even an approximate numerical solution of the Schrödinger equation is impossible for only just a few particles, not to mention for the millions of particles that are present in real materials. This talk focuses on a new approximation scheme in terms of socalled Tensor Network States, which allow for an arbitrarily accurate description of realistic quantum solid state systems at merely a polynomial overhead in the particle number, thus enabling efficient simulations of such systems on today's computers.

The power of available computers has now grown exponentially for many decades. The ability to discover numerically the implications of equations and models has opened our eyes to previously hidden aspects of physics. In physics, "complex systems" are systems of many similar interacting parts, such as the interacting atoms that make up a solid or liquid, but also interacting organisms in an ecosystem, or interacting traders in the stock market. This lecture will discuss how recent advances in modeling and computer simulation have allowed us to apply physicsstyle approaches to these previously challenging realworld systems to learn about such things as the spread of diseases, the flow of traffic or the structure of entire human societies.

The power of available computers has now grown exponentially for many decades. The ability to discover numerically the implications of equations and models has opened our eyes to previously hidden aspects of physics. In this lecture, Myles Allen addressed how computers have transformed our understanding of the role of chaos and exponential error growth in weather forecasting; and our understanding of how climate change is impacting regional weather. He showed how research in Oxford Physics, made possible by highend computing, is demonstrating the crucial role of eddies in controlling ocean climate; and how the probability of extreme weather events may respond to rising greenhouse gas concentrations. He concluded by throwing out a more controversial suggestion that supercomputers haven’t really contributed very much to the problem of predicting centurytimescale changes in global average temperature, however much they may have contributed to understanding the regional implications of largescale warming.
