Quantum theory is our best description of the micro-world. Quantum phenomena underly all processes in nature (except possibly gravitation). Some of these phenomena - superposition and entanglement, in particular - seem very strange to those of us living and functioning in the macro-world. Please join Dr. Birgitta Whaley as she explores how quantum strangeness works - in nature and in information and computation - to make many important processes possible that we take for granted.
