Fundamentals of physical theories describing the microscopic world
The physical principles describing the microscopic world are, in many ways, drastically different from their macroscopic counterparts. In particular, some of the classical intuitions that we have gathered in the past seem to fail badly if we are to apply them naively naively to the so-called "quantum world", the regime described by the quantum theory of physics. Even though much effort has been devoted to study this "transition" from the quantum world to the classical world, not much is known about how one can reconcile the classical intuitions with the quantum ones. In a nutshell, my primary research interest is to investigate how quantum entanglement, allegedly the most bizarre quantum phenomenon with no classical analogue, is
responsible for this deviation of the quantum world from the classical one.
