Advent Calendar 2012 December 11th

11 rhymes with 1927, so let’s talk about the fifth Solvay Conference!

See some of video footage of the conference itself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GZdZUouzBY

Although the Heisenberg matrix method and Schrodinger wave mechanics had already been reconciled in 1926, and most physicists had come to a consensus shortly after the Solvay Conference, Bohr and Einstein continued to disagree. They discussed their disagreements extensively in the famous Einstein-Bohr debates, and this culminated in the famous EPR paradox in 1935. The resolution of the paradox would not come until long after Einstein had died. You can read Einstein’s infamous paper here: http://prola.aps.org/abstract/PR/v47/i10/p777_1
