Training school for graduate students and young researchers

Are spin-statistics connection and quantum theory exact? The endeavor for the theory beyond the standard quantum mechanics (FQT2016)

Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, 19-21 December 2016

This training school is organized in the framework of the John Templeton Foundation financed project: ” Hunt for the “impossible atoms”: the quest for a tiny violation of the Pauli Exclusion Principle. Implications for physics, cosmology and philosophy” and is sponsored by the Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche Enrico Fermi, Roma and by INFN.

The main aim of the school is to train the young generation in hot issues of modern physics, such as the theoretical, philosophical and experimental aspects of the spin-statistics connection & quantum mechanics tests. Expert scientists and philosophers will give lectures on spin-statistics and spin-statistics violation and on theories beyond the “standard” quantum mechanics, with an overview of hottest topics in these sectors. Experiments testing spin-statistics (as VIP) and quantum mechanics and related philosophical issues will be introduced.

Young female students and researchers are strongly encouraged to participate.

Assessment of knowledge before and after the event will be realised (questionnaire).
