Ultracold Atoms for Foundational Tests of Quantum Mechanics by Robert J. Lewis-Swan

By Robert J. Lewis-Swan

This thesis offers a theoretical research into the construction and exploitation of quantum correlations and entanglement between ultracold atoms. in particular, it specializes in those non-classical results in contexts: (i) assessments of neighborhood realism with mammoth debris, e.g., violations of a Bell inequality and the EPR paradox, and (ii) attention of quantum know-how via exploitation of entanglement, for instance quantum-enhanced metrology.
In specific, the paintings offered during this thesis emphasizes the potential of demonstrating and characterizing entanglement in life like experiments, past the easy “toy-models” frequently mentioned within the literature. the significance and relevance of this thesis are mirrored in a spate of contemporary guides relating to experimental demonstrations of the atomic Hong-Ou-Mandel impact, commentary of EPR entanglement with enormous debris and an indication of an atomic SU(1,1) interferometer. With a separate bankruptcy on every one of those platforms, this thesis is on the leading edge of present study in ultracold atomic physics.

Dimensional and order-of-magnitude estimates are practiced by way of virtually all people yet taught nearly nowhere. whilst physics scholars interact of their first theoretical learn venture, they quickly examine that precisely solvable difficulties belong in simple terms to textbooks, that numerical versions are lengthy and source eating, and that “something else” is required to fast achieve perception into the method they will research.

Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String Theory (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Intersection cohomology assigns teams which fulfill a generalized type of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular house. This monograph introduces a mode that assigns to convinced periods of stratified areas cellphone complexes, known as intersection areas, whoseordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality.
