Physicists show self-correcting quantum computers are theoretically possible
Researchers find temperature feedback magnifying climate warming in Arctic
Simulation sets atoms shivering
(Phys.org) —In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (JK Rowling, 1997), Harry, Ron, and Hermione encounter a massive stone chessboard, one of many obstacles in their path. To advance, they must play, ...
Researchers claim satellite data proves global warming caused by humans
Astronomers unravel 20-year dark matter mystery with new computer models
(Phys.org) —Astronomers at The University of Texas at Austin believe they have discovered the answer to a 20-year debate over how the mysterious cosmic "dark matter" is distributed in small galaxies. Graduate ...
Computer simulations indicate calcium carbonate has a dense liquid phase (w/ Video)
Computer simulations conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could help scientists make sense of a recently observed and puzzling wrinkle in one of ...
Researchers figure out why gold nanoparticles can penetrate cell walls
Cells are very good at protecting their precious contents—and as a result, it's very difficult to penetrate their membrane walls to deliver drugs, nutrients or biosensors without damaging or destroying the cell. One effective ...
Computer simulations reveal universal increase in electrical conductivity
Computer simulations have revealed how the electrical conductivity of many materials increases with a strong electrical field in a universal way. This development could have significant implications for practical ...
Ice ages only thanks to feedback
Ice ages and warm periods have alternated fairly regularly in the Earth's history: the Earth's climate cools roughly every 100,000 years, with vast areas of North America, Europe and Asia being buried under ...
Simulation shows colloids can form into non-crystalline state at below freezing temperatures
Local icosahedral order in metallic glasses
New simulation shows disk anomalies around stars may not be planets after all
Research team proposes lumpy crust of X-ray pulsars responsible for arrest of spin slowing
Galaxies fed by funnels of fuel
(Phys.org) —Computer simulations of galaxies growing over billions of years have revealed a likely scenario for how they feed: a cosmic version of swirly straws.
