Der unbegreifliche Zufall: Nichtlokalität, Teleportation und by Nicolas Gisin

By Nicolas Gisin

Die Quantenphysik bietet eine Beschreibung der Welt auf kleinsten Skalen und macht dazu seltsame Aussagen, die unser Verständnis der Welt und ihrer Logik ernsthaft herausfordern. Besonders schwierig zu erklären ist das Phänomen der Verschränkung, das in den vergangenen 30 Jahren intensiv erforscht worden ist. Verschränkte Teilchen scheinen sich zufällig zu verhalten, aber dennoch über weite Distanzen hinweg voneinander zu wissen, sodass ihr Verhalten korreliert ist.

Diese erstaunliche "Nichtlokalität" ist mehr als nur eine abstrakte Seltsamkeit oder ein Paradoxon: sie findet ganz pragmatische Anwendungen in der Kryptographie, die wiederum verwendet werden kann, um brilliant Informationen zu kodieren. Durch Verschränkung wird auch "Quantenteleportation" möglich, deren unermessliche Möglichkeiten selbst von Science-Fiction Autoren nur erahnt werden kann.

Das vorliegende Buch wagt sich an die tiefen logischen Schwierigkeiten der Quantenmechanik heran und bietet dem Leser dabei das Rüstzeug, diese zu begreifen und zu bewundern. Von "Bell's Theorem" bis zu Experimenten der Quantenverschränkung gewinnt der Leser so ein solides Verständnis von einem der faszinierendsten Gebiete der modernen Physik.

Frontiers of Astrobiology by Chris Impey

By Chris Impey

Astrobiology is an exhilarating interdisciplinary box that seeks to reply to probably the most very important and profound questions: are we on my own? during this quantity, best foreign specialists discover the frontiers of astrobiology, investigating the newest study questions that may fascinate a large interdisciplinary viewers in any respect degrees. what's the earliest proof for all times in the world? the place are the main most likely websites for all times within the sun procedure? might lifestyles have developed in different places within the Galaxy? What are the simplest techniques for detecting clever extraterrestrial existence? what percentage liveable or Earth-like exoplanets are there? development in astrobiology during the last decade has been fast and, with proof collecting that Mars as soon as hosted status our bodies of liquid water, the invention of over 500 exoplanets and new insights into how existence all started in the world, the clinical look for our origins and position within the cosmos maintains.

Expounding the Mathematical Seed: The Translation: A by Agathe Keller

By Agathe Keller

Within the fifth century the Indian mathematician Aryabhata (476-499) wrote a small yet recognized paintings on astronomy, the Aryabhatiya. This treatise, written in 118 verses, offers in its moment bankruptcy a precis of Hindu arithmetic as much as that point. 200 years later, an Indian astronomer known as Bhaskara glossed this mathematical bankruptcy of the Aryabhatiya.An english translation of Bhaskara's observation and a mathematical complement are offered in volumes.Subjects taken care of in Bhaskara's remark diversity from computing the quantity of an equilateral tetrahedron to the curiosity on a loaned capital, from computations on sequence to an problematic strategy to unravel a Diophantine equation.This quantity comprises an creation and the literal translation. The advent goals at delivering a common historical past for the interpretation and is split in 3 sections: the 1st locates Bhaskara's textual content, the second one seems to be at its mathematical contents and the 3rd part analyzes the kinfolk of the remark and the treatise.
