Celebrating the life and work of John S. Bell

Last updated May 30, 2017 by Andrew Brown

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of John S. Bell’s seminar paper on the EPR paradox, which posed the bases for the so-called Bell’s theorem. John Bell, who was born in belfats in 1928 and studied and worked at Queen’s, is a key figure in modern quantum mechanics. Queen’s celebrates his life and work with a series of events that will take place in November: an exhibition at the Naughton Gallery and a series of scientific talks embody the core of the celebrations. CTAMOP researchers, who work in problems closely related to Bell’s work, have contributed to the organisation of the events. Details of the programme can be found at the Naughton Gallery website.
