Dr. Jeff Tollaksen joins us to discuss his groups’ latest discovery of the quantum violation of the pigeonhole principle. He starts our interview by introducing his field of work and what his group has been working on in particular. Dr. Tollaksen then expands on how the field of physics has developed from classical to quantum physics over the years. He explains how the culture has shifted from a deterministic view to a more capricious view with the acceptance of the quantum theory. We then discuss “quantum miracles” and the pigeonhole effect in this part one of our two part series with Dr. Tollaksen.
