Part of the TCSS Symposium

Quantum mechanics underlies our understanding of the physical world, but although it possesses a classical limit, it shouldn’t be thought of as just giving small deviations from the familiar rules of Newtonian mechanics. In particular, quantum tunnelling gives a remarkable example of a classical impossibility rendered possible in the real world. In this talk, we’ll look at a striking way to think about these effects which generalizes to applications to condensed matter, particle physics and even cosmology
