Why Mathematical Physics is required

When a student enters class XI the science subjects which he has studied till class X get more application oriented. The student has to apply the concepts he learned to the practical situations, write the mathematical equations and solve for the unknown quantities. This requires a thorough knowledge of some basic mathematical skills such as … Read more

Professor Dr. Mahua Biswas creates building blocks of tech

You don’t need a microscope to grasp the enormous impact of nanotechnology on our daily lives. “It’s the reason why a new phone is sleeker, smaller, and more efficient,” said Dr. Mahua Biswas, Illinois State University assistant professor of Physics. “It’s the future—nanometer scale materials provide superior optical and electrical properties compared to their bulk … Read more

Pitt, Swansea physicists find signs of pentaquark states, new matter

Newswise — Theorists at the University of Pittsburgh and Swansea University have shown that recent experimental results from the CERN collider give strong evidence for a new form of matter. The experiment at CERN, site of the world’s highest-energy particle collider, examined a heavy particle called a Lambda_b that decays to lighter particles including the … Read more

How the Physics of Nothing Underlies Everything

Most of the quantum fields that fill our universe have one, and only one, preferred state, in which they’ll remain for eternity. Most, but not all. True and False Vacuums In the 1970s, physicists came to appreciate the significance of a different class of quantum fields whose values ​​prefer not to be zero, even on … Read more

70 years of theoretical physics at CERN

CERN is quiet during the summer months, but there is one place that breaks that rule: the corridors of the CERN Theoretical Physics department. Here, the finest minds in theoretical physics gather all year round to discuss models and recent findings with colleagues, creating the vibrant atmosphere that has made it so special since its … Read more
