Quantum Mechanics & Chaos – Resources

3 Comments »

Below, I’ll provide resources and brief introductions to Chaos Theory, Quantum Mechanics, and Quantum Chaos.   I haven’t had much time to post on this blog, due to having 3 other websites that I’m currently working on, in addition to another one (article-submit site) that I’m submitting work to.   So, I’ll just drop down some links to some crazy physics.   By the time you unravel all of these scientific problems, I should have already made it back by then…for additional updates to this blog.   Ha-ha!

First in line, is a theory to entertain the science aficionados, called “Chaos Theory.” In this concept, ‘chaos’ doesn’t mean complete disorder.   A common metaphor is “A butterfly flaps its wings and a hurricane begins on the other side of the planet.   Sound silly?   Perhaps, but I’ll provide the wiki-link, to get you started.
Wikipedia’s version of this Butterfly Effect: Chaos theory is a field of study in mathematics, physics, and philosophy studying the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. Read more…  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory
Next up, is Quantum mechanics (QM).   The discovery of cathode rays, way back in 1838, by Michael Faraday…was sort of like the onramp to QM.
Later on, the developments in quantum mechanics hastily led to its status as the “standard formulation for atomic physics.”
Wikipedia’s take on QM:  Quantum mechanics is a set of scientific principles describing the known behavior of energy and matter that predominate at the atomic scale. Read more… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics

Now, lets fuse the Chaos theory together with Quantum Mechanics and investigate it under the field of “Quantum Chaos.”
Wikipedia’s Resources:  Quantum chaos is a branch of physics which studies how chaotic classical systems can be shown to be limits of quantum-mechanical systems. Read more…  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_chaos
