Re: Open letter to MagneticTrap

No result of anything what never has been done before can completely be ruled out at all. There is still the slight chance that a certain combination of words (a spell) can create things from nothing, there is really only statistical proof that it doesn't work but no real experimental data which pro...

Re: Predicting lottery number spread using neural networks

You just have to keep in mind that despite of the fact that one number has not been drawn for a long time or another number has been drawn just last sttureday both still have the same probability to be drawn next week, everything else would be an underlying system and should be ruled out as soon as ...

Re: False Vacuum

That is an agreed fact in quantumphysics that pure observation can change the outcom of an experiment (collapse the wavefunction). there is only argument about if this collaps is globalor only local. According to quantum theory there is always the slight possibility that a wafefunction is not yet co...

Re: Predicting lottery number spread using neural networks

I think neuronal Networks only help if htere is an underlying system what is not yet known or understood, so it might work for econnomy or as you say currencys. For Lottery there should be by de3finition no underlying system but only random, so also neuronets will not help there.

Thats my opinion.

Re: Can black holes grow?

@2.0:

that is a good and true explaination, but I think we already agreed from the beginning that groth not mean spacial groth, but groth in mass.

Re: Open letter to MagneticTrap

@stephen: as long as we assume teh laws of "confinement" and of "confirmation of energy" are true there is no way that a small amount of quark-gluon-plasma can transform a larger ammount of Protons and/or Neutrons also to quark-gluon-plasma without adding Energy, so this article just doesn't make se...

Am curious to know what they are doing to sector 81 today. Obviously it takes long.

Re: 2010 Startup

The latest news published here in the forum is still this There the last paragraph says: CMS collaboration members were asked for their best estimates of when first collisions would occur, with results plotted here. Lots of optimists voted for around March 1, the date that got the most votes was Apr...

Re: Physics Reading for Non-Physicists

I read "In search of Schrödingers cat" a long time ago and remember there were some more books of the "in search of ..." series, like "In search of the big bang" and "In search for the doubblehelix" (not exactly physics but biochemistry).
Maybe I should also read this one about shrödingers kittens.

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

To me the newes qoute of Ivan seems to violate the law of conservation of energy since it assumes some boiling Quarks would transform an up to inifinite number of Quarks bound in solid (protons and neutrons) also to boiling without adding any additional energy per nucleon. That just doesnt seem to m...

Re: Can black holes grow?

Thats what scinetist say nad more than that also for the rope each meter added to come closer to the evevthorizon brings you less and less closer to it the closer you are and in the end you have to add an infinite length to ever reach it by lowering slowly using a rope.

Re: Infinite series in quantum phyics

I did not say that one cannot use mathematics to describe quantum physics and also the mathematical theorems are not wrong themselfes only some of them like one quoted by you dividing everything into smaller and infinitesimal smaller portions cannot be used for Quantumphysics and produce wrong predi...

Re: Infinite series in quantum phyics

was not exactly meant to be ironic, but only means that it is true that pure calculus especially infinitesimal calculus for the very small doesn't work for quantum physical effects. Actually this is the reason why Einstein got the first ide wich later lead others to the quantum theory. There was a p...

Re: Infinite series in quantum phyics

I guess if it was not true what you write there we could not get any macroscopic prove of quantum-physical effects at all, but we get lik the collaps of the wave pattern on the screen only by observation, what is not predictet only by usin calculus, so you must be right.
