Lecture by profesor Joseph Maftoul.

Quantum science arose at the beginning of the last century and is unique in that it is not "classical" science: it uses concepts that aren't intuitive and often even seem impossible. To understand it, we cannot do without deep physical and mathematical knowledge, but even without equations it is possible to understand how the quantum description of our reality differs from the classical, "everyday" approach to that same reality.
In this lecture, we will explain the basic concepts of quantum physics and talk about what makes this field of science exceptional compared to others.
In the final part of the lecture, we will also touch on some philosophical aspects of quantum theory: how does today's physics see reality?
