Welcome to the blog! Posts on this blog will tagged with a level to signify how much mathematics or physics I assume the reader knows. The levels work as follows:
- Level 0: High school algebra/physics
- Level 1: Calculus/ first course in Physics with calculus
- Level 2: University-level mathematics/physics
- Level 3: Graduate-level mathematics/physics
In this level-0 post, we discuss the latest Nobel Prize in physics, awarded to Alain Aspect, John Clauser, and Anton Zeilinger “for experiments with entangled photons, establishing the violation of Bell inequalities and pioneering quantum information science,” the significance of their experiments, and what it means for the universe to not be locally real.
In this level-0 post, we take a look at some interesting thought experiments in thermodynamics, in particular the various incarnations of Maxwell’s demon. These were constructed as possible ways to subvert the second law of thermodynamics, and here we will talk about why they don’t.
