Proposed Spacetime Structure Could Provide Hints for Quantum Gravity Theory
Physicists aim to make transition to quantum world visible
Theoretical physicist Frank Wilhelm-Mauch and his research team at Saarland University have developed a mathematical model for a type of microscopic test lab that could provide new and deeper insight into ...
Why Einstein was wrong about being wrong
If you want to get your mind around the research that won three astronomers the Nobel Prize in physics last week, it helps to think of the universe as a lump of dough - raisin-bread dough, to be precise - mixed, kneaded and ...
Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum ...
Proving uncertainty: First rigorous formulation supporting Heisenberg's famous 1927 principle
Nearly 90 years after Werner Heisenberg pioneered his uncertainty principle, a group of researchers from three countries has provided substantial new insight into this fundamental tenet of quantum physics ...
Revolutionary theory of dark matter
The universe abounds with dark matter. Nobody knows what it consists of. University of Oslo physicists have now launched a very hard mathematical explanation that could solve the mystery once and for all.
Link between quantum physics and game theory found
(Phys.org) —A deep link between two seemingly unconnected areas of modern science has been discovered by researchers from the Universities of Bristol and Geneva.
Water waves exhibit negative gravity near a periodic array of buoys
Physicists explain why superconductors fail to produce super currents
When high-temperature superconductors were first announced in the late 1980s, it was thought that they would lead to ultra-efficient magnetic trains and other paradigm-shifting technologies.
New mathematical model links space-time theories
Researchers at the University of Southampton have taken a significant step in a project to unravel the secrets of the structure of our Universe.
Why moderate beliefs rarely prevail
New principle sets maximum limit on quantum information communication
Rapunzel, Leonardo and the physics of the ponytail
(PhysOrg.com) -- New research provides the first mathematical understanding of the shape of a ponytail and could have implications for the textile industry, computer animation and personal care products.
