Quantum Mechanics


Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm.

General Overview of Recent Results from the Pierre Auger Observato...

By: R. Caruso on Behalf of the Pierre Auger Collaboration

Description: Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Catania and INFN-Catania, Via S. Sofia 64, 95123 Catania, Italy. Since June 2008 the Pierre Auger Observatory, designed for the research of ultra high energy cosmic rays, is taking data in its final configuration. In this paper I will present a short overview of its recent scientific results. More specifically, I will discuss the all particle energy spectrum and the evidence for the GZK features, the measu...

Hess Opinions a Random Walk on Water : Volume 14, Issue 3 (25/03/2010)

By: D. Koutsoyiannis

Description: Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Greece. According to the traditional notion of randomness and uncertainty, natural phenomena are separated into two mutually exclusive components, random (or stochastic) and deterministic. Within this dichotomous logic, the deterministic part supposedly represents cause-effect relationships and, thus, is physics and science (...

The Hum: Log-normal Distribution and Planetary–solar Resonance : V...

By: R. Tattersall

Description: University of Leeds, Leeds, UK. Observations of solar and planetary orbits, rotations, and diameters show that these attributes are related by simple ratios. The forces of gravity and magnetism and the principles of energy conservation, entropy, power laws, and the log-normal distribution which are evident are discussed in relation to planetary distribution with respect to time in the solar system. This discussion is informed by consideration of the per...

The Renaissance of Science : The Story of the Atom and Chemistry

By: Ph.D. Albert Martini

The 2000 year history of the atom and chemistry, from the Classic Greek Era to the present, is described in 800 pages, depicted with some 300 pictures and illustrations. This history of the atom and chemistry discusses the lives of about 180 chemists and physicists, through the evolution of several stages of development, representing the most important scientific accomplishments. The most significant discoveries in chemistry and physics are presented chronologicall...

INTRODUCTION It is a genuine pleasure and challenge for me to try to express the full extent of my emotions and reasons for writing this book on the STORY OF THE ATOM AND THE SCIENCES, with special reference to the CHEMICAL SCIENCES. In one sentence, I can distill the essence of the purpose for this study by simply stating that it has been a labor of love that transcended the written word because sentiments and ideas belong in the realm of the ethereal and the phil...

The International System of Units

By: Barry N. Taylor

Physics Literature

Foreword: The International System of Units, universally abbreviated SI, is the modern metric system of measurement. Long the dominant system used in science, the SI is rapidly becoming the dominant measurement system used in international commerce. In recognition of this fact and the increasing global nature of the marketplace, the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988, which changed the name of the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) to the National Institute of...
