Episode 8: The Sea of Dirac with Ryan Haupt

Posted Feb 5, 2012 by bn

In episode 8 my old friends Jocelyn Read and Fiona Burnell join me to talk about one of the stranger ideas to come from quantum mechanics: the Dirac Sea.  To help keep us in line and on time, we’ve invited Ryan Haupt of Science… Sort Of. ALGEBRAIC!

Note: There’s some Extra bits after the end music.  Jocelyn Sings a song, and then i try a sweet analogy which Ryan Haupt decides to shoot down even though he doesn’t even understand multivariable calculus! >:{
