Canonical quantisation: A solution to quantum gravity?

Canonical quantisation: A solution to quantum gravity?

General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are some of the most significant results in modern physics. Both theories appear to work seamlessly by themselves and have stood up to decades of scrutiny, but they also appear to be completely incompatible with each other. So far, no-one has managed to develop a theory which merges them together. Now, Dr Stuart Marongwe at the Botswana […]

When kinetic theories clash, mind the lattice step: A statistical physics approach to the motion of atoms within materials

Master Equations Fokker–Planck Equations research outreach

What happens when the method used to search out an answer appears to have an effect on the answer itself? In the field of Statistical Physics, two different approaches have been used to describe the particle kinetics: the so-called Master Equations; and their counterpart, the Fokker–Planck Equations. But which is better and why does the approach used have an effect on the […]
