Latest Quantum field theory Stories
With headlines proclaiming the discovery of the Higgs boson—the so-called God particle—particle physics has captured the imagination of the world, particularly among those who dwell on the nature of the cosmos.
After years of theories and speculation, the Higgs boson particle discovery was announced on July 4, or was it? Several caveats swirled around the somewhat anti-climactic announcement, and almost a month later many scientists familiar with the CERN project are still reluctant to definitively say what they found was the so-called ‘God Particle’.
Now that the ‘God Particle’ has been discovered, is it time to pack up CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and move on to other projects?
A Kansas State University-led quantum mechanics study has discovered a new bound state in atoms that may help scientists better understand matter and its composition.
Scientists have determined that previously undetected particles could be seen as they accumulate around black holes.
A new study this week finds that “quantum critical points” in exotic electronic materials can act much like polarizing “hot button issues” in an election.
After a search that has lasted roughly three-quarters of a century, researchers believe they have at long last discovered evidence of an elusive particle that could be its own anti-particle.
Communications in Mathematical Physics is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Springer. The founding editor-in-chief was Rudolf Haag, who established the journal in 1965 with the help of Res Jost. Haag headed the journal for the next eight years, and was succeeded by Klaus Hepp, followed by James Glimm, Arthur Jaffe and the Michael Aizenman, who took over in 2000. The journal publishes papers in all fields of mathematical physics, but focuses particularly in analysis related to...
