  • precision
  • He is famous in his field for betting colleagues that he can calculate with increasing precision the behavior of gravitons, hypothetical particles that are believed to impart the force of gravity. (wired.com)
  • believe
  • Though gravitons are individually too weak to detect, most physicists believe the particles roam the quantum realm in droves, and that their behavior somehow collectively gives rise to the macroscopic force of gravity, just as light is a macroscopic effect of particles called photons. (wired.com)
  • We believe SPAMS is the only detection instrument that can autonomously detect multiple types of threat agents and trigger alarms within less than a minute," said Matthias Frank, an LLNL physicist and one of the paper's co-authors. (nanowerk.com)
  • question
  • He added, however, that the particles in question are far too small to serve as cloud condensation nuclei, adding, "At the moment, it actually says nothing about a possible cosmic-ray effect on clouds and climate, but it's a very important first step. (wikipedia.org)
  • matter
  • It was disappointing that the show didn't include a clear explanation on what the Christian position actually is (other than a very vauge 'spirit effects matter' - (followed by the later admission that the freedom of this spirit to choose is contrained all the time by physical factors).

  • The profile follows up her story about Arkani-Hamed and his then-student Jaroslav Trnka's concept of the "amplituhedron," the article that really made her name among physicists. (theopennotebook.com)
  • The researchers determined that while a few particles showed up as spores among the almost one million particles studied, there were so few that no alarms would have been triggered. (nanowerk.com)

  • What distinguishes SPAMS from other instruments is the high-quality information we receive from the instrument in the form of single-particle mass spectra," Frank said. (nanowerk.com)

  • Well, for one thing, you can't even get absolute proof that the two particles actually exist, as opposed to being some kind of hallucination created in you by the Dark Lords of the Matrix. (lesswrong.com)
  • system
  • CLEO was a hermetic detector that in all of its versions consisted of a tracking system inside a solenoid magnet, a calorimeter, particle identification systems, and a muon detector. (wikipedia.org)
  • forces
  • We might also wonder, if one force is so much larger than the others that it needs a factor of 4 x 1029 to allow it to be related to them in terms of effects, how did our universe come to be so exactly balanced when its forces emerged. (wikipedia.org)
