Sticky: Basics of Linear Vector Spaces

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

by CARIEL O. MONTALBAN In quantum mechanics, I have learned that the wavefunctions, , reside in Hilbert’s space.  What is Hilbert’s space? I guess to answer this question requires exploring the basic  properties of Hilbert’s space. Hilbert’s space is a linear vector space whose elements, entities or components obey certain rules or axioms.  This means […]

The Birth of Quantum Mechanics

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

” The Heisenberg-Bohr concepts leave us all breathless, and have made a deep impression on all theoretically oriented people.”           -Albert Einstein, 1926 The period 1905 to 1925 was a great time for the world’s leading physicists in the race to understand the quantum nature of matter. To explain so many curious and undigestible phenomena about radiation, […]

Sticky: The Equation That Changed The World

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

“Common sense is that layer of prejudices we acquire before we are 16.” – Albert Einstein The physical world that was opening up in  1900 was revealed and seen in a radical light. Max Planck’s bold hypothesis that light was emitted in  bundles or  quanta of energy where each quantum’s energy is determined by the […]
