Latest Uncertainty principle Stories
For scientists working in quantum physics, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle says that measurements of properties such as the momentum of an object and its exact position cannot be simultaneously specified with arbitrary accuracy.
Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle is arguably one of the most famous foundations of quantum physics.
No-one likes a know-it-all but we expect to be able to catch them out: someone who acts like they know everything but doesn't can always be tripped up with a well-chosen question.
Once we learn the relationship between a cue and its consequencesâ€”say, the sound of a bell and the appearance of the white ice cream truck bearing our favorite chocolate coneâ€”do we turn our attention to that bell whenever we hear it?
Researchers have uncovered a fundamental link between the two defining properties of quantum physics.
A quantum particle is hard to grasp, because one cannot determine all its properties precisely at the same time.
In a study published in the July 1 issue of the journal Nature, Dartmouth researchers describe one example of the microscopic quantum world influencing--even dominating, they say--the behavior of something in the macroscopic classical world.
Probability matching is tempting, but strategists are better off going by the numbers when choosing winners in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
Exquisitely sensitive microwave amplifier increases nano-scale measurement accuracy; could lead to quantum computing breakthroughs.
By KATE O'HARE By Kate O'Hare Zap2it.com WHEN A TV SERIES hits its fifth season, it can start to get a little mushy around the middle. David Krumholtz, star of CBS' mathematics/crime drama "Numb3rs," which reaches that milestone at 10 tonight, feels his show is still lean and mean.
