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 ...
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.
Proposed Spacetime Structure Could Provide Hints for Quantum Gravity Theory
Mathematical scientist suggests possible test for existence of axions
On the origins of the Schrodinger equation
A new kind of counting: Scientists develop computer algorithm to solve previously unsolvable counting problems
(PhysOrg.com) -- How many different sudokus are there? How many different ways are there to color in the countries on a map? And how do atoms behave in a solid? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for ...
Physics rules network dynamics
(PhysOrg.com) -- When it comes to the workings of the Web, the brain, or a social network, physics finds universal truths.
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.
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.
Research concludes there is no 'simple theory of everything' inside the enigmatic E8
The "exceptionally simple theory of everything," proposed by a surfing physicist in 2007, does not hold water, says Emory University mathematician Skip Garibaldi.
Why moderate beliefs rarely prevail
Peregrine's 'Soliton' observed at last
(PhysOrg.com) -- An old mathematical solution proposed as a prototype of the infamous ocean rogue waves responsible for many maritime catastrophes has been observed in a continuous physical system for the ...
Researchers show that the big bang was followed by chaos
(PhysOrg.com) -- Seven years ago Northwestern University physicist Adilson E. Motter conjectured that the expansion of the universe at the time of the big bang was highly chaotic. Now he and a colleague have ...
The Big Bang versus the 'Big Bounce'
Two fundamental concepts in physics, both of which explain the nature of the Universe in many ways, have been difficult to reconcile with each other. European researchers developed a mathematical approach ...
