When fluid dynamics mimic quantum mechanics

Por • 1 ago, 2013 • Category: Ciencia y tecnología

MIT researchers, in collaboration with physicist Yves Couder at the Université Paris Diderot and his colleagues, report that they have produced the fluidic analogue of a classic quantum experiment, in which electrons are confined to a circular “corral” by a ring of ions. “It’s a great result,” says Paul Milewski, a math professor at the University of Bath, in England, who specializes in fluid mechanics. “Given the number of quantum-mechanical analogues of this mechanical system already shown, it’s not an enormous surprise that the corral experiment also behaves like quantum mechanics. But they’ve done an amazingly careful job, because it takes very accurate measurements over a very long time of this droplet bouncing to get this probability distribution.”



A roll of the dice

Quantum theory is close to optimal in terms of its predictive power, say researchers from the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, the University of Calgary’s Institute for Quantum Information Science, and the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) in Zürich.



Reading Theorie Analytique des Probabilites

Por • 15 jun, 2012 • Category: Educacion

This note is an extended read of my read of Laplace’s book Theorie Analytique des Probabilites, when considered from a Bayesian viewpoint but without historical nor comparative pretentions. A deeper analysis is provided in Dale (1999).
