Die perfekte Welle: Mit Neutrinos an die Grenzen von Raum by Heinrich Päs

By Heinrich Päs

Teilchenphysik hat viel von technological know-how Fiction. Zum Beispiel Zeitreisen. Die hält der Dortmunder Physikprofessor Heinrich Päs nämlich für durchaus möglich. Noch werden keine Menschen in einer Zeitmaschine sitzen. Wohl aber die Neutrinos. Diese super-leichten, flüchtigen Elementarteilchen sind Päs' faszinierender Forschungsgegenstand. Ihre geringe Masse könnten sie der Tatsache verdanken, dass sie sich zum Teil in Extradimensionen befinden. Dimensionen, die der Mensch nicht wahrnehmen kann. Dimensionen außerhalb von Raum und Zeit. Heinrich Päs über eines der spannendsten Phänome der Physik.

The Message of Quantum Science: Attempts Towards a Synthesis by Philippe Blanchard,Jürg Fröhlich

By Philippe Blanchard,Jürg Fröhlich

This number of essays is in particular meant to pay tribute to the truth that whereas QM at the present time is a elegant and enormously profitable device, many concerns about the inner consistency and the translation of this thought are nonetheless now not approximately besides understood as they should be.

In addition, each time attainable those essays take the chance to hyperlink foundational concerns to the various fascinating advancements which are usually associated with significant experimental and technological breakthroughs in exploiting the electromagnetic box and particularly, its quantum homes and its interactions with topic, in addition to to advances in stable country physics (such as new quantum corridor beverages, topological insulators and graphene). the current quantity additionally specializes in quite a few parts, together with new interference experiments with very huge molecules passing via double-slits, which try out the validity of the Kochen-Specker theorem; new exams of the violation of Bell’s inequalities and the implications of entanglement; new non-demolition measurements and assessments of “wave-function cave in” to call yet a few.

These experimental advancements have raised many difficult questions for theorists, resulting in a brand new surge of curiosity within the foundations of QM, that have questioned physicists ever when you consider that this conception was once pioneered virtually 90 years ago.

The final result of a seminar software of an identical identify on foundational matters in quantum physics (QM), prepared by means of the editors of this ebook and addressing novices to the sector and extra pro experts alike, this quantity offers a pedagogically encouraged picture view of a number of the unresolved concerns within the box of foundational QM.

The Quantum Exodus: Jewish Fugitives, the Atomic Bomb, and by Gordon Fraser

By Gordon Fraser

It was once no twist of fate that the Holocaust and the Atomic Bomb occurred whilst. while the Nazis got here into energy in 1933, their preliminary aim used to be to not dispose of Jews. fairly, their target used to be to refine German tradition: Jewish professors and lecturers at superb universities have been sacked. Atomic technological know-how had attracted loads of Jewish expertise, and as Albert Einstein and different quantum exiles scattered, they discovered that they held the main to a weapon of unimaginable
power. confident that their gentile opposite numbers in Germany had come to a similar end, and having witnessed what the Nazis have been ready to do, the exiles have been afraid. that they had to get to the Atomic Bomb first. The Nazis in the meantime had bought a extra urgent target: their persecution of the Jews
had developed into extermination. dreadful initiatives - the Bomb and the Holocaust - grew to become locked a grisly race.

Coherent Atomic Manipulation and Cooling: Interferometric by Alexander J. Dunning

By Alexander J. Dunning

This work unites the recommendations of laser cooling and matter-wave interferometry to boost an interferometric laser cooling method in an experimental procedure of chilly rubidium atoms. Serving as an advent to graduate point coherent optical atomic manipulation, the thesis describes the idea of inspired Raman transitions and atom interferometry, in addition to the experimental tools for getting ready and manipulating chilly atoms, ahead of development on those foundations to discover adapted optical pulse sequences and novel atomic cooling techniques.

Interferometric cooling, initially proposed via Weitz and Hänsch in 2000, relies upon the coherent broadband laser pulses of Ramsey interferometry and in precept permits laser cooling of atomic and molecular species outdoor the scope of conventional Doppler laser cooling. at the direction towards cooling, composite pulses – quantum errors correction equipment, constructed via chemists to mitigate the results of in homogeneities in NMR spectroscopy – are investigated with a view to enhancing the functionality of atom interferometers.

Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String by Markus Banagl

By Markus Banagl

Intersection cohomology assigns teams which fulfill a generalized type of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular area. This monograph introduces a mode that assigns to sure periods of stratified areas phone complexes, known as intersection areas, whose
ordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality. The cornerstone of the tactic is a strategy of spatial homology truncation, whose functoriality houses are analyzed intimately. the cloth on truncation is self reliant and will be of autonomous curiosity tohomotopy theorists. The cohomology of intersection areas isn't really isomorphic to intersection cohomology and possesses algebraic good points similar to perversity-internal cup-products and cohomology operations that aren't quite often to be had for intersection cohomology. A mirror-symmetric interpretation, in addition to functions to thread idea touching on massless D-branes coming up in sort IIB thought in the course of a Calabi-Yau conifold transition, are discussed.
