The Peres conjecture is false: One of the most famous problems in quantum information physics solved
Since 1999, the conjecture by Asher Peres, who invented quantum teleportation, has piqued the interest of many scientists in the field. According to his hypothesis, the weakest form of quantum entanglement can never result ...

(PhysOrg.com) -- An international team of physicists, including a scientist based at The University of Queensland, has recently closed an additional 'loophole' in a test explaining one of science's strangest phenomena -- ...
Global income equality now back at 1820s levels: OECD
The gap between the haves and the have-nots globally is now at the same level as in the 1820s, the OECD said Thursday, warning it was one of the most "worrying" developments over the past 200 years.
Time to dethrone GDP as a measure of national success, researcher says
(Phys.org) —Gross Domestic Product is a misleading measure of national success, say ANU experts.
Low incomes make poor more conservative, study finds
You might think that in a time when more money is concentrated in fewer hands and incomes vary wildly from billions to subsistence, poor people might increase their support for government policies that offer some help.
Experimentally testing nonlocality in many-body systems
In a recent study published in Science, researchers at ICFO construct multipartite Bell inequalities built from the easiest-to-measure quantities, the two-body correlators, which are capable of revealing ...
Income inequality now greater in China than in US
(Phys.org) —Income inequality has been rising rapidly in China and now surpasses that of the U.S. by a large margin, say University of Michigan researchers.
Economic growth does not produce well-being
Over the last three decades global society has grown richer, but not better off.
Public trust has dwindled with rise in income inequality
Trust in others and confidence in societal institutions are at their lowest point in over three decades, analyses of national survey data reveal. The findings are forthcoming in Psychological Science, a jour ...
The deep roots of economic inequality
A special issue of Science explores the origins of human inequality, drawing on research by SFI Professor Sam Bowles and collaborators.
