2016 Nobel Prize In Physics Awarded To David Thouless, Duncan Haldane And Michael Kosterlitz
They were honored for their work in revealing the secrets of exotic matter. Their discoveries, using advanced mathematics, had boosted research in condensed matter physics and raised hopes for uses in...
3 share Nobel Prize in physics for discoveries on strange states of matter
Three physicists share the Nobel Prize for their work discovering strange states of matter
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.
How Albert Einstein Celebrated His Birthday
The physicist was born on March 14, 1879
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...
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...
Nobel Prize For Physics 2015: How Neutrinos Saved The World
The prize goes to a discovery about the properties of neutrino particles that has saved us from worrying that Earth might end in an icy death. Astronomers called it the solar neutrino problem. It was ...
After A Half Century, The Exotic Pentaquark Particle Is Found
In July, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reported the discovery of the pentaquark, a long-sought particle first predicted to exist in the 1960s as a consequence of the theory of elementa...

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...
Hellmann–Feynman theorem
In quantum mechanics, the Hellmann–Feynman theorem relates the derivative of the total energy with respect to a parameter, to the expectation value of the derivative of the Hamiltonian with respect to...
