I think all of these sound fantastic!

Dear All,

Having seen the great ideas put forward by the group, I wish to promote the following set of QM topics to discuss in the following three months, spaced 3 weeks apart.

1) Special Topic - Quantum Computing

2) The Ultraviolet Catastrophe, the Photoelectric Effect and the Quantization of Light

3) The Young's Double Slit experiment and the Collapse of the Wavefunction

4) Debate - Different Interpretations of Wavefunction Collapse (Copenhagen Interpretation, Non-local Hidden Variables, Many-Worlds, Transactional, Decoherence, Observer/Consciousness-caused Collapse)

5) The structure of atoms, energy levels, particle spin and the Pauli Exclusion principle.

6) Quantum Entanglement between particles, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox and Bell's Theorem

Meetings 3-4 will include discussions on deterministic vs. uncertainty/probablistic views on Wavefunction Collapse, proposed multiple universes and histories and the effect of the observer.

Since there are a number in the group with a good knowledge of quantum mechanics and cosmology, and in the interests of having a group in which everyone has an involvement, I'd also like those who are interested to lead talks, debates and discussions on QM&C-related subjects of their choice. If any of you would like to become assistant organisers and help in the direction and running of the group and meetups, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please give me your views on these.
