Famous Fluid Equations Are Incomplete - www.quantamagazine.org

Shared 4 years 12 weeks ago

In 1900, the great mathematician David Hilbert presented a list of 23 unsolved problems worth investigating in the new century. The list became a road map for the field, guiding mathematicians through unexplored regions of the mathematical universe as they ticked off problems one by one. But one of ...

Macroscopic quantum phenomena discovered in ice - phys.org

Shared 4 years 12 weeks ago

(Phys.org)—Scientists have discovered an anomaly in the properties of ice at very cold temperatures near 20 K, which they believe can be explained by the quantum tunneling of multiple protons simultaneously. The finding is a rare instance of quantum phenomena emerging on the macroscopic scale,...
