Journées Louis de Broglie 2019
4 Nov 2019, Institut Henri Poincaré, Paris.

A one-day workshop at the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) Paris.

A workshop devoted to current investigations related to two topics that have been initiated by Louis de Broglie: the theory of the double solution on the one hand, pilot waves and quantum trajectories on the other.

The morning session will deal with ongoing work on double solution related ideas in quantum theory and quantum trajectories.  The afternoon session will deal with a classical analogy of wave-particle duality. This session will be dedicated to the memory of Yves Couder.

Session and round-table dedicated to the memory of Yves Couder

The afternoon session will be dedicated to the memory of Yves Couder, who passed away earlier this year. Yves was a pioneer in the investigation of walking droplets, a hydrodynamic analog of quantum mechanical wave-particle duality.

The session will explore current work on wave-particle duality in hydrodynamics and possible connections with the theory of the double solution. These connections as well as Yves Couder's contributions will be further discussed in a round table.
