A quantum simulation of Unruh radiation

Researchers at the University of Chicago (UChicago) have recently reported an experimental observation of a matter field with thermal fluctuations that is in accordance with Unruh's radiation predictions. Their paper, published ...

Maxwell's demon extracts work from quantum measurement

(Phys.org)—Physicists have proposed a new type of Maxwell's demon—the hypothetical agent that extracts work from a system by decreasing the system's entropy—in which the demon can extract work just by making a measurement, ...

Conjuncture

In general, a conjuncture is a period marked by some watershed event which separates different epochs.

In economics, conjuncture (fluctuation) is a critical combination of events.
