A brief attempt to understand the phenomena of fake news, in a world where information can be accessed and cross checked in seconds. An entirely opinion based discursive post.
An introduction to Bayes theorem, a powerful way of thinking that can influence the way you see the world and allow you to reveal the truth. A very limited use of percentages and probabilities are used to illustrate the ideas.
A brief introduction to the biggest contender for a unified theory – a 2000 word introduction to string theory requiring no mathematics.
A brief introduction to the weird world of quantum computing. Learn how a small number of quibits can quickly transform into something wonderfully complex.
A brief introduction to the increasingly important world of neutrino physics. The little stuff is shy, mysterious but fundamentally the material from which reality is constructed. Shall we?
How deep does the rabbit hole go? Explore the basic theoretical underpinnings for information theory and how this leads to some challenging theories of reality.
Today I intend to present an elegant piece of mathematics which through it’s simplicity can give insight into seemingly disordered systems, along with producing imagery that looks more like a magic eye than mathematics.
In this post we consider the details of light, particularly the path it takes from A to B. Elementary science tells us this should be a straight line, so this should be a short article?
An explanation of the meaning of the various quantum numbers. My aim is to over time make the site self sufficient, so when we reference something like a quantum number there is somewhere else the readers can be directed which will give an explanation for those who need it.
A longer discursive post, highlighting one of the strangest features of quantum mechanics – quantum entanglement. No mathematical ability is required, with only a little simple probability.
