Experimental evidence for the Unruh effect. (arXiv:1903.00043v3 [gr-qc] UPDATED) 2019年10月18日 星期五 下午7:34 | gr-qc updates on arXiv.org Authors: Morgan H. Lynch, Eliahu Cohen, Yaron Hadad, Ido Kaminer We examine the radiation emitted by high energy positrons channeled into silicon crystal samples. The positrons are modeled as semiclassical vector currents coupled to an Unruh-DeWitt detector to incorporate any local change in the energy of the… Read more →

Dimensional reduction via a novel Higgs mechanism. (arXiv:1806.07520v1 [gr-qc] CROSS LISTED)  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-23 1:03am GMT Authors: Saurya Das, Mir Faizal Many theories of quantum gravity live in higher dimensions, and their reduction to four dimensions via mechanisms such as Kaluza-Klein compactification or brane world models have associated problems. We propose a novel mechanism of dimensional reduction via spontaneous… Read more →

Test of a hypothesis of realism in quantum theory using a Bayesian approach  PRA: Fundamental concepts on 2017-5-05 2:00pm GMT Author(s): N. Nikitin and K. Toms In this paper we propose a time-independent equality and time-dependent inequality, suitable for an experimental test of the hypothesis of realism. The derivation of these relations is based on the concept of conditional probability and on Bayes’… Read more →
