Subatomic Particles Quantum Mechanics
756 wordsQuantum Mechanics is the science of subatomic particles and their behavior patterns that are observed in nature. As the foundation of scientific knowledge approached the start of the twentieth century, problems began to arise over the fact that classic physical ideas were not capable of explaining the observed behavior of subatomic particles. In 1913, the Danish physicist Neil's Bohr, proposed a successful quantum model of the atom that began the process of a more defined understanding of its su...

Theory Of Relativity Werner Heisenberg
2,209 wordsWerner Heisenberg, born in the dawn of the twentieth century became one of its greatest physicists; he is also among its most controversial. While still in his early twenties, he was among the handful of bright, young men who created quantum mechanics, the basic physics of the atom, and he became a leader of nuclear physics and elementary particle research. He is best known for his uncertainty principle, a component of the so-called Copenhagen interpretation of the meaning, and uses of quantum m...

Werner Heisenberg And The Uncertainty Principle
2,213 words... t dealt with observed frequencies and intensities of emitted and absorbed light, and in doing it enabled a momentous breakthrough in physics, ensuring Heisenberg's place in modern physics. Heisenberg then laid the groundwork for the new theoretical "matrix mechanics." The next semester, Heisenberg wrote a paper on the topic but was not sure if he should publish it. He gave it to Born to read, and while he was away at Cambridge, England Born sent the paper to the "Zeitschrift fr Physik", a le...

Special Theory Of Relativity Quantum Mechanics
1,104 wordsPart I: The Edge of Knowledge Chapter 1: Tied Up with Strings This is the introductory section, where the author, Brian Greene, examines the fundamentals of what is currently proven to be true by experimentation in the realm of modern physics. Green goes on to talk more about "The Basic Idea" of string theory. He describes how physicists are aspiring to reach the Theory of Everything, or T. O. E. Some suspect when string theory is completely understood that it might turn out to become the T. O. ...

The authors confined themselves to dealing with computations which involved effective or mechanical methods for finding...

The paper looked at this possibility. Hawking believed that the ordinary kind of black hole, made from a massive star, pulled in matter ...

David Bohm's contributions to science and philosophy are profound, and they have yet to be fully recognized and integrated on the grand scale. David Bohm was born on December 20, 1917, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Bohm was fascinated by the dazzling concepts of cosmic forces and vast expanses of space that lie beyond our understandin...

4,210 wordsWhat is quantum computing? Quantum Computing is something that could have been thought up a long time ago an idea whose time has come. For any physical theory one can ask: what sort of machines will do useful computation? or, what sort of processes will count as useful computational acts? Alan Turing thought about this in 1936 with regard (implicitly) to classical mechanics, and gave the world the paradigm classical computer: the Turing machine. But even in 1936 classical mechanics was known to ...
