报告摘要 
Einstein believed that quantum mechanics was an incomplete theory, famously quoting"spooky action at a distance" and "God doesn't play dice". I give a discussion of the famous argument (the EinsteinPodolskyRosen paradox) that he used to justify his beliefs. I will introduce the meaning of EinsteinPodolskyRosen correlations, Bell's theorem and the concepts of entanglement and EPRsteering, as well how to use the paradox for interpretations of the Schrodinger cat. The paradox is not just of philosophical importance and modern applications to quantum key distribution and teleportation will also be explored.
报告人简介：Professor Reid is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. She is known for her pioneering work in new fundamental tests of quantum theory, including teleportation and cryptography. She graduated from the University of Auckland with an MSc in theoretical physics and then undertook PhD studies in New Zealand with Dan Walls FRS, graduating in 1984. Reid is currently Professor at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne and works as a researcher within the Center for Quantum and Optical Sciences. Prof. Reid's work has focused on the fundamental tests of quantum mechanics, including of the EPR paradox and Bell's theorem, based on parametric dowm conversion and quantum optics. She developed theories for the generation of squeezed states of light and quantum nondemolition measurement.
