Did Newton know Quantum Mechanics? Reply

My insight of the day. Quantum Mechanics makes Newton’s Law consistent in its two forms. Otherwise they would be inconsistent. So Newton knew some QMech. He knew 1. F=ma=mdv/dt and 2. F=dp/dt. These two are consistent in a framework where wave-particles are central. Because F=ma corresponds to particles and F=dp/dt corresponds to waves.

I will explain this later. More…

Triangles and Particle Physics ! 7

Phase Space.

When we deal with what we call particle physics, we always have to bring into discussion; whats a phase space. Its the most basic thing to do, in that involvement. Its like each time we make pizza we have to think of whats the dough and whats the topping. At-least the theoretical and experimental particle physicists would think so.

Whats phase space? How is it that the special relativity was hidden into a small angle?

Lets first talk phase space.

Phase space literally means a space of angles. A phase is an angle. But what is the angle? The angle that gives us the direction of momentum. And the magnitude of the momentum is directly connected to the energy. More…

The Discovery of Subatomic Particles by Steven Weinberg .. review Reply

I own this book but haven’t read through much of it. Excellent history of particle physics. If one aspires to write books for Physicists and allied scientists one shall follow the ethos behind such book . More…

The nature of Physical truth and our approach to find it 2

The Unification of fundamental physical interactions is a result of that abstract thinking, and look at it, we are successful because nature nods “agreed”. One example of this unification is is how the electric fields (E) are same as a magnetic field (B) if you recognize that the E, B fields are not fundamental but a mere form of the more fundamental field when the speed of reference is quite ordinary. This was explained in much detail in the preciding chapter: What are photons? There we learned how we see these fields in an everyday sense, we do not see the lightening speeds if we were to we would not be seeing these fields but their rather fundamental origin and we would see that there is only one field: the electromagnetic field, which is jumping from one state to the next releasing something we call the photon or light corpuscles.
Now reductionism can be understood as a prevalent thinking in the theoretical approach to understand our Universe…

The story of particle physics 1

sitting here on my desk, a self-procreated office locus, on a rainy and lightening midnight what can I do?

My love for physical isn’t too much a secret. I try very hard to transcend that to Physics. And without much self-organization I can not weave the scattered threads. So I will just pick randomly on a topic and give it a go. I choose the importance of vision and say “what direction is particle physics going?”. More…
