How to Easily Learn Difficult Things

Here’s a great video about learning, which is a crucial skill for the 21st century. As a medical student, I have often been frustrated by learning. Mostly with myself: for procrastinating, getting distracted from studying, not wanting to put in the time to learn difficult things; or with my teachers: for what we’ve considered lazy, […]

Bell’s Inequality: The weirdest theorem in the world that won a Nobel Prize in 2022

John Clauser, Alain Aspect and Anton Zeilinger won the Nobel Prize in physics for 2022. Their work built off of one of the most important results in all of physics; Bells Theorem, invented by the late John Stewart Bell. Here we discuss why Bells Theorem is one of the most important, yet bizarre, results in […]

Why Did Quantum Entanglement Win the Nobel Prize in Physics?

The Nobel prize in physics is typically awarded to scientists who make sense of nature; those whose discoveries render the universe more comprehensible. But the 2022 Nobel has been awarded to three physicists who revealed that the universe is even stranger than we thought thanks to Quantum Entanglement

The Equation That Explains (Nearly) Everything!

The Standard Model of particle physics is arguably the most successful theory in the history of physics. It predicts the results of experiments with a numerical precision unmatched by any other branch of science, and it does so almost unfailingly. The theory is encapsulated in a single equation known as the Standard Model Lagrangian. Today […]

The Trouble with Gravity: Why Can’t Quantum Mechanics explain it?

Here’s a Wednesday Science Break about gravity and why quantum physics still can’t explain it. Maybe the question ICP should be asking is “Gravity How Does It Work?” In a classical universe, if we knew all the positions and velocities for all particles, we could predict the future and the past. Quantum mechanics is not […]

Entanglement-Optimal Trajectories of Many-Body Quantum Markov Processes | Hannes Pichler

In this talk Hannes Pichler presents a method to solve the equations of motion of open quantum many-body systems. It is based on a combination of generalized wave function trajectories and matrix product states. More specifically, we developed an adaptive quantum stochastic propagator, which minimizes the expected entanglement in the many-body quantum state, thus minimizing […]

New Supercomputer Simulation Sheds Light on Moon’s Origin

A new NASA and Durham University simulation puts forth a different theory of the Moon’s origin – the Moon may have formed in a matter of hours, when material from the Earth and a Mars sized-body were launched directly into orbit after the impact. The simulations used in this research are some of the most […]
