Quantum physics just got less complicated: Wave-particle duality and quantum uncertainty are same thing
Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has demonstrated that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct are different manifestations of the same thing.
Scientists rise up against statistical significance
Valentin Amrhein, Sander Greenland, Blake McShane and more than 800 signatories call for an end to hyped claims and the dismissal of possibly crucial effects.
When Quantum Mechanics and Relativity Collide
The two greatest achievements of modern physics — quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of general relativity — share one serious problem: they disagree.
How Holography Could Help Solve Quantum Gravity | Quanta Magazine
In the latest campaign to reconcile Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics, many physicists are studying how a higher dimensional space that includes gravity arises like a hologram from a…
'Is God a mathematician?'
December 2008 Is God a mathematician? by Mario Livio "Oh god, I hope not," was the reaction of a student when Livio asked the title question at a lecture, and it's a reaction that's likely to be replicated by many unsuspecting bookshop browsers. But despite its frightening title, the book's appeal could not be broader. All that's required to enjoy this fascinating read is a capacity to marvel at the mysteries of nature and humankind's attempts to understand them. This is "popular…
Ole Ulfbeck & Aage Bohr, Genuine Fortuitousness. Where Did That Click Come From? - PhilPapers
The paper presents a revised view of quantum mechanics centered on the notion (“genuine fortuitousness”) that the click in a counter is a totally lawless event, which comes by itself. A crucial point is the distinction between events on the spacetime scene and the content of the symbolic algorism. A revised conception of matrix variables emerges, by which such a variable, as part of a whole, does not have a value, under any circumstance. This conception is at variance with that of…
