Possible Extended Symmetries of Field Theoretic Systems

Aug. 15, 2014 — Many physical systems, from superfluids to pi mesons, are understood to be manifestations of spontaneous symmetry breaking, whereby the symmetries of a system are not realized by its lowest energy ... read more

June 27, 2014 — When Albert Einstein proposed the existence of gravitational waves as part of his theory of relativity, he set in train a pursuit for knowledge that continues nearly a century later. These ripples in ... read more

June 26, 2014 — Researchers have detected the smallest force ever measured -- approximately 42 yoctonewtons -- using a unique optical trapping system that provides ultracold atoms. A yoctonewton is one septillionth ... read more

Black Hole Trio Holds Promise for Gravity Wave Hunt

June 25, 2014 — The discovery of three closely orbiting supermassive black holes in a galaxy more than four billion light years away could help astronomers in the search for gravitational waves: the 'ripples in ... read more

Possibly Primordial Gravitational Waves, but Galactic Dust Not Ruled Out: Nuanced Account of Stunning Patterns in the Microwave Sky

June 19, 2014 — Following a thorough peer-review process, the researchers who previously announced the detection of B-mode polarization in a patch of the microwave sky have published their findings. Their research ... read more

May 13, 2014 — Astrophysicists have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide an important cosmological ... read more

Mapping the Road to Quantum Gravity

Apr. 23, 2014 — The road uniting quantum field theory and general relativity -- the two great theories of modern physics -- has been impassable for 80 years. Could a tool from condensed matter physics finally help ... read more

Apr. 23, 2014 — What if spacetime were a kind of fluid? This is the question tackled by theoretical physicists working on quantum gravity by creating models attempting to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics. ... read more

Apr. 16, 2014 — It does not always take a huge accelerator to do particle physics: First results from a low energy, table top alternative takes validity of Newtonian gravity down by five orders of magnitude and ... read more

Mar. 25, 2014 — Physicists are using surprising ideas and mathematical tools originating in string theory to guide research into strange materials that are cropping up in condensed matter laboratories. There are a ... read more

Mar. 24, 2014 — Australian astronomers have combined all observations of supernovae ever made to determine that the strength of gravity has remained unchanged over the last nine billion years. Newton's ... read more

Mar. 24, 2014 — Einstein's skepticism about quantum mechanics may lead to an ultra-secure Internet, a new paper suggests. In 1935, Einstein and researchers highlighted a 'spooky' theory in quantum ... read more

Mar. 24, 2014 — Recently physicists have been poking holes again in Stephen Hawking's black hole theory -- including Hawking himself. Now another professor has jumped into the fray. He believes he has solved ... read more

Mar. 17, 2014 — Almost 14 billion years ago, the universe we inhabit burst into existence in an extraordinary event that initiated the Big Bang. In the first fleeting fraction of a second, the universe expanded ... read more

Researchers Propose a New Way to Detect the Elusive Graviton

Mar. 4, 2014 — A cosmologist and a physicist have proposed that measuring minute changes in the cosmic background radiation of the universe could be a pathway of detecting the telltale effects of ... read more

A Forgotten Model of the Universe: Analysis of Einstein's 1931 Paper Featuring a Dynamic Model of the Universe

Feb. 19, 2014 — Researchers have provided the first English translation and an analysis of one of Albert Einstein's little-known papers, "On the cosmological problem of the general theory of ... read more

Einstein's Conversion from a Belief in a Static to an Expanding Universe

Feb. 17, 2014 — Albert Einstein accepted the modern cosmological view that the universe is expanding long after many of his contemporaries. Until 1931, physicist Albert Einstein believed that the universe was ... read more

How Hypergravity Impacts Electric Arcs

Dec. 18, 2013 — A new study on electric discharge behavior under intense gravitational forces shows that its dynamic changes as gravity increases. Arc discharges are common in everyday conditions like welding or in ... read more

Dec. 10, 2013 — Apply heat and stir; an expanding universe can emerge in a remarkably simple way, say scientists. When soup is heated, it starts to boil. When time and space are heated, an expanding universe can ... read more

Dec. 5, 2013 — Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics -- so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a ... read more
