On this page, I have collected the videos in which I have appeared, as well as the talks I have given for which videos are available.
I started a youtube channel in which I will post videos on mathematics and physics accessible to a wide audience (no prerequisites).
- A proof of Bell's inequalityThis is a companion video to "(Non-)Locality, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen argument, and Bell's inequality" in which I discussed the relation between Bell's inequality and locality. In this video, I give a full proof of Bell's inequality in a very general setting, starting only from the assumption of locality.
- (Non-)Locality, the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen argument, and Bell's inequalityIn this video, I discuss how the winners of the 2022 Nobel Prize in physics have shown that the world is NOT LOCAL. This means that, at least in principle, it is possible for an action taken somewhere on Earth to have an effect arbitrarily far away, even in the most remote corners of the universe. The Nobel Prize winners achieved this by proving that an inequality, called Bell's inequality, is violated in nature. In this video, I describe the argument made by John Bell that a violation of Bell's inequality implies that there is no locality. This argument starts from the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen "paradox" (EPR), which I describe as well.
I was interviewed by La Dimoni de Maxwell, who hosts a youtube channel with educational science videos, most of which are in Catalan (though my interview is in English).
I highly recommend her channel to those of you who speak Catalan: the content is of exceptional quality!
