Does probability come from quantum physics?
(Phys.org)—Ever since Austrian scientist Erwin Schrodinger put his unfortunate cat in a box, his fellow physicists have been using something called quantum theory to explain and understand the nature of waves and particles.
The emergence of complex behaviors through causal entropic forces
New experiments challenge fundamental understanding of electromagnetism
(Phys.org)—A cornerstone of physics may require a rethink if findings at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are confirmed. Recent experiments suggest that the most rigorous predictions ...
Two collider research teams find evidence of new particle Zc(3900)
Do we live in a computer simulation? Researchers say idea can be tested
A decade ago, a British philosopher put forth the notion that the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation run by our descendants. While that seems far-fetched, perhaps even incomprehensible, ...
Physicists suggest possible existence of other kinds of dark matter
New theory uncovers cancer's deep evolutionary roots
A new way to look at cancer—by tracing its deep evolutionary roots to the dawn of multicellularity more than a billion years ago—has been proposed by Paul Davies of Arizona State University's Beyond Center for Fundamental ...
Researchers force a gas to a temperature below absolute zero
Higgs particle can disintegrate into particles of dark matter, according to new model
The 'Standard Model' of particle physics successfully describes the smallest constituents of matter. But the model has its limitations – it does not explain the dark matter of the universe. Christoffer ...
New study suggests Voynich text is not a hoax
Superheated Bose-Einstein condensate exists above critical temperature
20 years on, world's first Web page to be reborn (Update)
The world's first web page will be dragged out of cyberspace and restored for today's Internet browsers as part of a project to celebrate 20 years of the Web, organisers said on Tuesday.
Physicist proposes simple experiment to detect foam-like structure of the universe
Following Higgs discovery, physicists offer vision to unravel mysteries of universe
After nine days of intensive discussions, nearly 700 particle physicists from about 100 universities and laboratories concluded nine months of work with a unified framework for unmasking the hidden secrets ...
