`2020-12-01 16:45:00``2020-12-01 17:45:00``Colloquium - Xiao-Gang Wen (MIT) - Four Revolutions in Physics and a Second Quantum Revolution``Newton's mechanical revolution unifies the motion of planets in the sky and falling of apple on earth. Maxwell's electromagnetic revolution unifies electricity, magnetism, and light. Einstein's relativity revolution unifies space with time, and gravity with space-time distortion. The quantum revolution unifies particle with waves, and energy with frequency. Each of those revolution changes our world view. In this talk, we will describe a revolution that is happening now: the second quantum revolution which unifies matter/space with information. In other words, the new world view suggests that elementary particles (the bosonic force particles and fermionic matter particles) all originated from quantum information (qubits): they are collective excitations of an entangled qubit ocean that corresponds to our space. The beautiful geometric Yang-Mills gauge theory and the strange Fermi statistics of matter particles now have a common algebraic quantum informational origin.
