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, […]

For a Deeper Understanding and Appreciation of our Physical World

Friday, November 28th, 2008

In June 2008, for the first time in the southern Philippines the biggest group of more than a dozen and a half graduate students studying quantum mechanics was ever assembled. Never mind that the Philippines was discovered by Magellan in the year 1521. Anyway, quantum mechanics was only formulated in 1926; relatively quite recent. Quantum […]
