Gravitational Wave Detection Might Be Announced Feb. 11
Gravitational waves may have been detected for the first time, but we won't know for sure until February 11, 2016 — when scientists will either confirm or dispel the rumors, sources close to the matte...
Scientists Struggle To Stay Grounded After Possible Gravitational Wave Signal
Not for the first time, the world of physics is abuzz with rumours that gravitational waves have been detected by scientists in the US. Lawrence Krauss, a cosmologist at Arizona State university, twee...
Breakthrough Junior Challenge: Some Cool Ways of Looking at the Special Theory of Relativity
110 years ago Albert Einstein published a theory that revolutionized the way we think about the universe. In this video I'll show you how to prove its two postulates using easy-to-understand real-worl...
Spacecraft That Will Test Einstein Theory Ready For Lift-Off
A spacecraft designed to test Albert Einstein's Theory of General Relativity is set to launch on Dec. 2. Under the eLISA Mission, LISA Pathfinder will help scientists detect presence of gravitational ...
Will Quantum Mechanics Swallow Relativity?
At present physicists have two separate rulebooks explaining how nature works. There is general relativity, which beautifully accounts for gravity and all of the things it dominates: orbiting planets,...
Albert Einstein Wouldn’t Like It: New Test Proves Universe Is ‘Spooky’
The universe really is weird, which is bad news both for Albert Einstein and for would-be hackers hoping to break into quantum encryption systems. Eighty years after the physicist dismissed as “spooky...
The Communist Spy (Maybe) Behind This Year's Nobel Prize in Physics
How neutrino research stems from—and validates—a physicist who defected to the Soviet Union in the 1950s
Nobel Prize in physics awarded for neutrino "changing flavors" finding
Takaaki Kajita of Japan and Arthur McDonald of Canada won the Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for discovering that tiny particles called neutrinos change identities as they whiz through the universe...
Gabriel Andrew Dirac
Gabriel Andrew Dirac (March 13, 1925 – July 20, 1984) was a mathematician who mainly worked in graph theory. He stated a sufficient condition for a graph to contain a Hamiltonian circuit. In 1951 he c...
Heinrich Rohrer
Heinrich Rohrer (6 June 1933 – 16 May 2013) was a Swiss physicist who shared half of the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics with Gerd Binnig for the design of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM). The oth...

Feynman–Kac formula
The Feynman–Kac formula named after Richard Feynman and Mark Kac, establishes a link between parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) and stochastic processes. It offers a method of solving cer...
Wheeler–Feynman absorber theory
The Wheeler–Feynman absorber theory (also called the Wheeler–Feynman time-symmetric theory) is an interpretation of electrodynamics derived from the assumption that the solutions of the electromagneti...
Bethe–Feynman formula
The Bethe-Feynman efficiency formula, a simple method for calculating the yield of a fission bomb, was first derived in 1943 after development in 1942. Aspects of the formula are speculated to be secr...
