Academic Lectures from University of Oxford's Department of Physics.
The video series for this podcast includes content previously published in 2016 as 'Reduced Density Matrices in Quantum Physics and Role of Fermionic Exchange Symmetry': "The interdisciplinary workshop brings together experts in quantum science, as e.g. quantum information theory, quantum chemistry, solid state physics and mathematical physics. The aim is to explore from a conceptual viewpoint the influence of the fermionic exchange symmetry and its consequences for the reduced 1-and 2-fermion picture. In particular, a better understanding should be developed of how the conflict of energy minimization and antisymmetry of the N-fermion quantum state leads to simplified descriptions of fermionic ground states."
Higgs boson-like particle discovery claimed at the Large Hadron Collider
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider claim the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. Alan Barr of Oxford's Physics department, UK physics coordinator for LHC's ATLAS experiment, describes what it means for science.

Alan Barr on Particle Physics
Dr Alan Barr, University Lecturer in the Particle Physics group in the University of Oxford's Department of Physics, discusses the particle physics experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, Switzerland.
Question #1 Where did you/he/she get the idea of making this machine.
Question #2 How do you get the atoms to reach such speed?
Question #3 If you haven't gone through 1 experiment yet, how do you know the results or theories of results?
More to come...
Great! The best I've listened too!!
LHC "disproved" the theory of relativity. True? No, just a failure of the $9,000,000,000 machine. Second inaugural test of the LHC? Had trouble with its cryogenics. First modest hi energy collisions postponed due to accident. LHC does not prove higgs-boson, or any other scientific phenomenon. Just goes to show that more money doesn't mean better machine. Can we get our money back? (I mean on the collider. )
