Tensor networks provide toy models which explicitly realize many puzzling features of AdS/CFT correspondence, and are sometimes treated as the lossy descriptions of the skeleton (in the AdS scale) of the space geometry along with the low energy physics attached on. more
Oct 6 2015 | Neutrino 'flip' wins physics Nobel Prize | Posted In: Awards, Blog
Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald led two teams which made key observations of the particles inside big underground instruments in Japan and Canada. They were named on Tuesday morning at a news conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Goran Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of... more
Ground states of quantum matter can often be distinguished by their zero temperature electrical properties.  This way, superconductors, metals and insulators have zero, finite, and infinite resistance respectively, at T=0.  In two dimensions, it is widely believed that only superconductors,... more
Kicking the world’s largest machine into overdrive is turning out to be harder than expected. Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, near Geneva in Switzerland, say that plans to run their physics experiments at higher energies are likely to be delayed until next year. more
