• bunch
  • Well, a bunch of physicists started criticizing the uncertainty principle, saying things like, "Oh, your equipment just sucks at these tiny levels," or, "Hey, you're just using too clumsy a method to make your observation. (blogspot.com)
  • displaystyle
  • For example, if w is the average energy for a particle to produce a charge carrier in a detector, then the relative FWHM resolution for measuring the particle energy E is: R = F W H M μ = 2.35 F w E , {\displaystyle R={\frac {FWHM}{\mu }}=2.35{\sqrt {\frac {Fw}{E}}},} where the factor of 2.35 relates the standard deviation to the FWHM.

  • measure
  • In statistics, the Fano factor, like the coefficient of variation, is a measure of the dispersion of a probability distribution of a Fano noise. (wikipedia.org)
  • order
  • The factor 2π makes Q expressible in simpler terms, involving only the coefficients of the second-order differential equation describing most resonant systems, electrical or mechanical. (wikipedia.org)
  • critical
  • In 1904 he was the first to note the existence of density fluctuations in the gas phase, and in 1908 he was the first physicist to ascribe the phenomenon of critical opalescence to large density fluctuations. (wikipedia.org)
  • book
  • A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing is a non-fiction book by the physicist Lawrence M. Krauss, initially published on January 10, 2012 by Free Press. (wikipedia.org)
  • He has stated in many interviews and in an episode of Wonders of the Universe that when he was 12, the book Cosmos by Carl Sagan was a key factor in inspiring him to become a physicist. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • According to physicist Philip Warren Anderson, the term was coined by him and Volker Heine, when they changed the name of their group at the Cavendish Laboratories, Cambridge from Solid state theory to Theory of Condensed Matter in 1967, as they felt it did not exclude their interests in the study of liquids, nuclear matter, and so on.

  • The truncated versions of this series also allow physicists to prove that special relativity reduces to Newtonian mechanics at low speeds. (wikipedia.org)
  • BBC Two commissioned Cox to copresent Stargazing Live, a three-day live astronomy series in January 2011 - co-presented with physicist-turned-comedian Dara Ó Briain and featuring chat show host Jonathan Ross - linked to events across the United Kingdom. (wikipedia.org)
  • similar
  • If the time window is chosen to be infinity, the Fano factor is similar to the variance-to-mean ratio (VMR) which in statistics is also known as the index of dispersion. (wikipedia.org)

  • Now physicists, some of whom have been reluctant to take acceleration of the universe seriously, will have to explain what this dark energy is. (nytimes.com)
  • Of course, it was Einstein who originally ordered dark energy when he inserted a fudge factor called the cosmological constant into his gravitational equations describing the universe. (nytimes.com)
  • In particle detectors, the Fano factor results from the energy loss in a collision not being purely statistical. (wikipedia.org)
