University of Vienna This news release is available in German. Objects with sizes in the nanometer range, such as the molecular building blocks of living cells or nanotechnological devices, are continuously exposed to random collisions with surrounding molecules. In such fluctuating environments the fundamental laws of thermodynamics that govern our macroscopic world need to be rewritten. An international team of researchers from Barcelona, Zurich and Vienna found that a nanoparticle...

Chris Reich, creator of BizPhyZ™, The Physics of Business™, develops presentation on entropy. San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014 Chris Reich, the developer of the physics of business™ known as BizPhyZ™, has completed work on a new presentation to teach business people about the ravages of entropy. Entropy essentially means disorder. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that entropy always increases. In other words, disorder is always increasing unless work is put in to...

Chris Reich, developer of BizPhyZ, the physics of business, gave a rousing opening address at the annual BBTC Conference in Las Vegas and was asked to continue with another two hour presentation following day one. Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 29, 2013 Chris Reich, developer of BizPhyZ, which uses physics as a metaphor to present better business thinking impressed the crowd at the annual BBTC Conference in Las Vegas earlier in November. The attendees of the conference received the...

Researchers at Aalto University and the University of Tokyo have succeeded for the first time in experimentally measuring a probability distribution for entropy production of electrons. Entropy production means an increase in disorder when electrons are moved individually between two microscopic conductors of differing temperatures. The researchers also showed that a connection prevails between two definitions of entropy that have been used. The result is significant for the design of...

Our present understanding of thermodynamics is fundamentally incorrect if applied to small systems and need to be modified, according to new research from University College London and the University of Gdansk Our present understanding of thermodynamics is fundamentally incorrect if applied to small systems and needs to be modified, according to new research from University College London (UCL) and the University of Gdańsk. The work establishes new laws in the rapidly emerging field of...

Chris Reich is using fascinating laws of physics to do something remarkable in business. Etna, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2013 Chris Reich is proud to announce the development of BizPhyZ, the science of business colliding with physics. This fresh new way to look at business fuses business and physics in a super collider of ideas. BizPhyZ, a term coined by Chris Reich, noted business development consultant and speaker, is a result of fifteen years of research. Reich began to think about a...

The binding of proteins to various substrates in a biological system is a basic but essential process to maintain the function of living things. The mechanisms underlying protein binding have been the focus of theoretical and experimental research for many years. Many mechanisms have been proposed and characterized, including "lock and key", "induced fit", "population shift" and "fly-casting". The recently discovered "fly-casting" mechanism allows a protein chain to unfold and extend to reach...

University of Oregon theorists overcome loss of entropy and friction in computational simulations University of Oregon researchers have devised a mathematically rich analytic approach to account for often-missing thermodynamic and molecular parameters in molecular dynamic simulations. The new approach, which returns atomistic-level data into the time frame of the macroscopic world, is detailed in a paper appearing online ahead of regular publication in the journal Physical Review E. The...

New understanding of entropy From a laptop warming a knee to a supercomputer heating a room, the idea that computers generate heat is familiar to everyone. But theoretical physicists have discovered something astonishing: not only do computational processes sometimes generate no heat, under certain conditions they can even have a cooling effect. Behind this finding are fundamental considerations relating to knowledge and a lack of knowledge. The researchers publish their findings today in the...

A Purdue University researcher has used "econophysics" to show that under ideal circumstances free markets promote fair salaries for workers and do not support CEO compensation practices common today. The research presents a new perspective on 18th century economist Adam Smith's concept that an "invisible hand" drives a free market economy to a collective good. "It is generally believed that the free market cares only about efficiency and not fairness. However, my theory shows that even...

Open Systems & Information Dynamics (OSID) is journal published by World Scientific. The aim of the Journal is to promote interdisciplinary research in mathematics, physics, engineering and life sciences centered around the issues of broadly understood information processing, storage and transmission, in both quantum and classical settings. Our special interest lies in the information-theoretic approach to phenomena dealing with dynamics and thermodynamics, control, communication,...
