Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

In attempting to comprehend the atom, physicists outfitted quantum mechanics, the main profitable thought in technology and the foundation of one-third of our economic climate. they discovered, to their embarrassment, that with their concept, physics encounters awareness. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner clarify all this in non-technical phrases with support from a few fanciful tales and anecdotes in regards to the theory's builders.

Quantum theory of optical coherence

A precis of the pioneering paintings of Glauber within the box of optical coherence phenomena and photon information, this booklet describes the elemental principles of contemporary quantum optics and photonics in an educational variety. it truly is hence not just meant as a reference for researchers within the box, but additionally to offer graduate scholars an perception into the elemental theories of the sector.

Is quantum logic really logic

Putnam and Finkelstein have proposed the abandonment of distributivity within the good judgment of quantum conception. this transformation effects from defining the connectives, now not fact functionally, yet when it comes to a definite empirical ordering of propositions. Putnam has argued that using this ordering ("implication") to manipulate proofs resolves yes paradoxes.

From a different point of view, this Monte Carlo code can be seen as a tool to apply the knowledge gathered in new experimental low energy 48 A. Muñoz et al. electron databases to practical applications, suitable both in macroscopic and microscopic scales. Macroscopic parameters, such as energy loss profiles and averaged deposited energy, can be studied more accurately from these new models. According with the energy range of the implemented cross sections, this code can be naturally applicable to study profiles of deposition of energy in the microscopic scale, in which other codes can only extrapolate results generated from data computed to be used at higher energies and larger scales.

INTRODUCTION Important applications related to biology and medicine are requiring an increasing degree of detail in how radiation transfers the energy to the medium and its consequences in terms of induced damage. e. the total energy absorbed per unit mass. In general, for bulk materials the radiation damage is proportional to the dose and therefore it is used as reference parameter in most applications connected with radiation protection and radiotherapy.

If for each of the σiM values we use the all-orientations average, we are ignoring the effect of the relative orientation of de different blocks inside the macromolecule. Some sample calculations show that these effects are usually small. Fig. 10 shows some calculations for an extreme case: a few timine rings all of them with different relative orientations. As can be appreciated, even in this extreme situation, the orientation-effects are small: around 10% at 10 eV and smaller at larger energies.
