Quantum Chaotic Behavior In Ultracold Gas Discovered
2014-03-13 15:02:29

University of Innsbruck The team of Francesca Ferlaino, Institute for Experimental Physics of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, has experimentally shown chaotic behavior of particles in a quantum gas. "For the first time we have been able to observe quantum chaos in the scattering behavior of ultracold atoms," says an excited Ferlaino. The physicists used random matrix theory to confirm their results, thus asserting the universal character of this statistical theory. Nobel laureate...

Chaos-on-a-chip model shows crash can be avoided if caught in time It's an idea financial regulators have dreamed of. Experiments on a simple model of chaos have found that it may be possible not only to predict an extreme event, like a stock market collapse, but to intervene and prevent it from happening. In a paper appearing October 21 in the journal Physical Review Letters, an international team of chaos researchers say that these extreme events, which they call "dragon kings," are...

Validating Kolmogorov's Theory Of Turbulence - Modifications May Be Needed
2013-04-04 05:19:11

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman once declared that turbulence is “the most important unsolved problem in classical physics.” The phenomenon of turbulence is quite common, apparent in the flow of air in our atmosphere, or the rise of smoke from a cigarette. Yet, a mathematical description of turbulence has continued to escape scientists, despite having been studied for hundreds of years. In 1941 Soviet...

As any city dweller knows, buses are rarely on time. It´s typical to wait a while, only to have several buses show up one after another, a phenomenon known as bus bunching. Fortunately, researchers and students at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a possible solution for bus bunching that provides better service to riders, simplifies the job of drivers and reduces work for management. Industrial & Systems Engineering Professor John Bartholdi and Georgia Tech...

Unemployment time series in Spain behave in a chaotic way according to a study at the University of Seville. Such chaos demonstrates the complex and unpredictable nature of the Spanish labor market in the long run. However, short term patterns can be predicted using complex mathematical models. "Using mathematical techniques we have found evidence of chaos in unemployment time series in Spain. In theory, this explains why unemployment trends are so unstable," outlines Elena Olmedo,...
