In the next series of post, I am going to define (again) and write some cool identities of several objects that mathematicians and physicists know as zeta functions and polylogarithms. I have talked about them already here http://www.thespectrumofriemannium.com/2012/11/07/log051-zeta-zoology/ 1. We … Continue reading

Hi, everyone! I am back, again! And I have some new toys in order to post faster (new powerful plugin). Topic today: Ramanujan! Why Ramanujan liked the next equation? (1) This equation can be rewritten as follows (2) … 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

This post is the first of three dedicated to some of my followers. Those readers from Mexico (a nice country, despite the issues and particularities it has, as the one I live in…), ;). Why? Well, …Firstly, they have proved … Continue reading

“(…) The answer to the Great Question…is…Forty-two(…)” said Deep Thought with infinity majesty and calm (frequently found quote from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, London 1979) Dear readers, yesterday, while I was editing, re-editing and writing my … Continue reading

The year 2013 is coming to its end…And I have a final gift for you. An impossible post! This year was the Bohr model 100th anniversary. I have talked about this subject already, here, here and here. The hydrogen spectrum is very important in Astronomy, … Continue reading

“(…)A similar path to the same goal could also be taken in those manifolds in which the line element is expressed in a less simple way, e.g., by a fourth root of a differential expression of the fourth degree…(…)” … Continue reading

Final post of this series! The topics are the composition of different angular momenta and something called irreducible tensor operators (ITO). Imagine some system with two “components”, e.g., two non identical particles. The corresponding angular momentum operators are: The following … Continue reading

This and my next blog post are going to be the final posts in this group theory series. I will be covering some applications of group theory in Quantum Mechanics. More advanced applications of group theory, extra group theory stuff … Continue reading

The case of Poincaré symmetry There is a important symmetry group in (relativistic, quantum) Physics. This is the Poincaré group! What is the Poincaré group definition? There are some different equivalent definitions: i) The Poincaré group is the isometry group … Continue reading
