Building on self-professed perspectival approaches to both scientific knowledge and causation, I explore the potentially radical suggestion that perspectivalism can be extended to account for a type of objectivity in science. Motivated by recent claims from quantum foundations that quantum mechanics must admit the possibility of observer-dependent ...

The nonlinear generalization of the von Neumann equation preserving convexity of the state space is studied in the nontrivial case of the qutrit. This equation can be cast into the integrable classical Riccati system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The solutions of such system are investigated in both the linear case corresponding to ...

量子力学的な粒子の空間断熱移送に成功 --空間を飛び越える粒子--. 京都大学プレスリリース. 2020-01-20. / Quantum interference lies at the heart of quantum mechanics. By utilizing destructive interference, it is possible to transfer a physical object between two states without populating an intermediate state which is necessary to connect the initial and final states. A famous application is...

The conspicuous similarities between interpretive strategies in classical statistical mechanics and in quantum mechanics may be grounded on their employment of common implementations of probability. The objective probabilities which represent the underlying stochasticity of these theories can be naturally associated with three of their common forma...

Despite decades of focused research, a detailed understanding of the fundamental physical processes that underpin biological systems (structures and processes) remains an open challenge. Within the present paper we report on biomimetic studies, which offer new insights into the process of cell division and the emergence of different cellular and mu...

Simulating ultrafast quantum dissipation in molecular excited states is a strongly demanding computational task. Here, the authors combine tensor network simulation, entanglement renormalisation and machine learning to simulate linear vibronic models, and test the method by analysing singlet fission dynamics.

Classical solutions of the Klein–Gordon equation are used in astrophysics to model galactic halos of scalar field dark matter and compact objects such as cores of neutron stars. These bound solutions are interpreted as Bose–Einstein condensates whose particle number density is governed by the Gross–Pitaevskii (GP) equation. It is well known that th...

Ion hydration phenomena are of great interest in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, geochemistry and environment. However, few studies using identical calculation methods to characterize the hydration properties of ions in water and in electrolytic systems are available. Hence, it is difficult to compare the hydration properties of ions whe...

Citrus greening (huanglongbing) is the most destructive disease of citrus worldwide caused by Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLA). Currently, no strategies have been developed to manage the Huanglongbing (HLB) disease and to stop the spreading of this disease to new citrus areas. Esbp is an extracellular solute-binding protein, involved in the ...

The Bell's theorem stands as an insuperable roadblock in the path to a very desired intuitive solution of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox and, hence, it lies at the core of the current lack of a clear interpretation of the quantum formalism. The theorem states through an experimentally testable inequality that the predictions of quantum mechani...
