Paul Dirac: The most beautiful equation - The godfather of Modern Quantum Mechanics Paul Dirac was one of the most significant — and curious — characters in the annals of physics. His contributions to both quantum mechanics and mathematics are both varied and considerable, from the Dirac equation, to early work on quantum field theory that forms the backbone of superstring theories, … Continue reading Paul Dirac: The most beautiful equation
The Many Worlds of Hugh Everett III - Dr. Hugh Everett III was one of the more compelling and even bizarre figures in physics, someone was scorned and even ridiculed during their lifetime, only for the influence of their theories to grow beyond science and becoming a pop culture phenomenon after their death. Moreover, he truly and deeply believed in the consequences of his theories, which likely contributed to his death and the later suicide of his daughter.
The Destiny of the Schrodinger’s Cat - For starters, it’s a thought experiment (like those crazy ideas you think at night, it’s the same but a documented one). It came into Schrödinger’s mind while thinking about another thought experiment of Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (again similar to how you think about crazy ideas of your friends). The EPR experiment shows that a … Continue reading The Destiny of the Schrodinger’s Cat
CAN A MACHINE REPLICATE THE HUMAN BRAIN? - We must remind ourselves that Goodstein’s theorem is a Godel-like theorem. We have our mechanical theorem proven rules R and we were able to construct a mathematical statement G(R). This was just like our first example we used when we had all the natural n = 1, 2, 3, 4, and we had the property P(n). From there we began with P(0) and moved onto P(n + 1).
The Neuroscience of Dating - Have you ever thought how active our brains are, when we are dating? And how attraction can lead us to a complex series of calculations within a matter of seconds in our brain? Love at first sight Alice had a long day at work. It was only 4pm but she felt like it was already … Continue reading The Neuroscience of Dating
