Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Categories, Logic and Foundations of Physics: The Videos

Posted by John Baez

guest post by Bob Coecke

The videos from the 2nd Categories, Logic and the Foundations of Physics workshop in London are now available here. There are also some talks from Logic, Physics and Quantum Information Theory organised by Prakash Panagaden in Barbados. Unfortunately some of the talks didn’t come out well, e.g. Selinger’s completeness result for dagger compact categories. We hope to make up for this at Quantum Physics and Logic this summer in Iceland. Credits go to Ben Jackson and Jamie Vicary for doing the filming and Jamie for putting them online.

The dates for the next Categories, Logic and the Foundations of Physics workshop, which will take place in Oxford, are August 23, 24 — so two days this time.

Logic, Physics and Quantum Information Theory in Barbados. I’ve always been sorry I missed that one!

For a taste of the beach-physics lifestyle, jump to the end of Jon Yard’s talk! (Or better, watch it all the way through.)

Wow… okay I’ve just seen what happened at the end of Jon Yard’s talk. Fifteen seconds between the Jones polynomial and a dip in the deep blue sea.

Quantum Physics and Logic

“We hope to make up for this at Quantum Physics and Logic this summer in Iceland.”

Does anyone know if there are the videos of the QPL online in some place? I know somebody recorded all the talks, but I don’t know where he uploaded it.
Cheers.

Re: Quantum Physics and Logic

Not yet, but they will be soon. We’ll put them on together with the videos of the Oxford event which takes place in two weeks.
