Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps WASHINGTON, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle will thin out like a piece of taffy until it is less than half a micron across -- about 200 times...

University of Innsbruck Even computers are error-prone. The slightest disturbances may alter saved information and falsify the results of calculations. To overcome these problems, computers use specific routines to continuously detect and correct errors. This also holds true for a future quantum computer, which will require procedures for error correction as well: "Quantum phenomena are extremely fragile and error-prone. Errors can spread rapidly and severely disturb the computer," says...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The difficulty in understanding the field of quantum computing just got a little easier, but only slightly. New research from the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing has confirmed, at least theoretically, that the concept of contextuality is a necessary resource required for achieving the advantages of quantum computation. Contextuality is regarded as one of the weirder aspects of quantum theory and is a...

Quantum Teleportation Experiments Hailed A Success

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The world of Gene Roddenberry has given us so many things that seemed an impossibility when we first saw them on the fantastical science-fiction television show Star Trek. All you need do is visit your local grocery store for the sliding doors triggered by an electronic eye, or reach into your own pocket for a personal communications device. The one thing that seemed too impossible, however, was the transporter, a teleportation...

Julie Cohen, UC Santa Barbara A new five-qubit array from UCSB’s Martinis Group is on the threshold of making a quantum computer technologically feasible to build A fully functional quantum computer is one of the holy grails of physics. Unlike conventional computers, the quantum version uses qubits (quantum bits), which make direct use of the multiple states of quantum phenomena. When realized, a quantum computer will be millions of times more powerful at certain computations than...

Applied Mathematics
2014-01-02 10:00:11

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Thorvald Nicolai Thiele was born on December 24, 1838 and died on September 26, 1910. He was a famous mathematician, astronomer and statistician. He is best known for the interpolation and three body problem. He was the first to hypothesize Brownian motion which was derived from his study of cumulants. He founded the Hfnia Insurance Company and acted as their Mathematical Director. He also led the way for the organization of the Danish Society of Actuaries.
