You're not irrational, you're just quantum probabilistic: Researchers explain human decision-making with physics theory
The next time someone accuses you of making an irrational decision, just explain that you're obeying the laws of quantum physics.
Forget the Vulcan mind-meld of the Star Trek generation—as far as mind control techniques go, bacteria is the next frontier.
From a mechanical perspective, granular materials are stuck between a rock and a fluid place, with behavior resembling neither a solid nor a liquid. Think of sand through an hourglass: As grains funnel through, they appear ...
Humans and Neanderthals may have coexisted in Europe for more than 5,000 years, providing ample time for the two species to meet and mix, according to new research.
Of the many tricks used by the world's greatest military strategists, one usually works well – taking the enemy by surprise. It is an approach that goes back to the horse that brought down Troy. But surprise can only be ...
Students may soon be able to reach out and touch some of the theoretical concepts they are taught in their physics classes thanks to a novel idea devised by a group of researchers from Imperial College London.
