Hi everyone! Is entanglement the key? A tribute to Ant-Man and Hawking today as the preamble, Quantum Chess playing for heroes like you: Entanglement is the subject we have today. Entanglement is that spooky weird feature of the quantum realm … Continue reading

Some weeks ago, the Riemann zeta function and the Riemann hypothesis were again in the news. Sir Michael Atiyah proposed a (wrong) failed proof of the Riemann hypothesis. My blog has an history of being controversial from time to time. … Continue reading

If you believe in both, relativity AND quantum mechanics, something that I presume you do due to experimental support, you are driven to admit that the speed of light is the maximal velocity (at least, the maximal 1-speed, in single … Continue reading

The second and last blog post in this thread is about the analogies between black holes and condensed matter theory, in particular with phases of matter like fluids or superconductors. That is what explains my previous picture…And this post! Are … Continue reading

Hi, doctorish ladies and gentlemen! I am going to teach some bits of black hole today. For the simplest static (non-rotatory) black hole, the whole space-time is fully specified by mass , and some constants, like . The critical … Continue reading

Hello, world! In the paper Notes on several phenomenological laws of quantum gravity, by Jean-Philippe Bruneton, you find a very interesting discussion I am going to enlarge about the scales of (quantum) gravity. With Planck quantities: … Continue reading

I have the power! I have a power BETTER than the Marvel’s tesseract. It is called physmatics. Hi, there! We are back to school. This time, I am going to give you a tour with some geometrical objects, or geometricobjects, … Continue reading

In this year, 2015, we celebrate the Light Of Year (LOY) and one century of general relativity (GR), a misnomer for something that should be called relativistic theory of gravity. Let me celebrate the centenary of general relativity with some … Continue reading

Following the previous article, now I will discuss some interesting points in the paper: Generalized information entropies depending only on the probability distribution, by O.Obregón and A.Gil-Villegas. You can find the paper here http://arxiv.org/abs/1206.3353 The Boltzmann factor for a generalized … Continue reading
