The Maximum Entropy Principle – The distribution with the maximum entropy is the distribution nature chooses

In a previous article entropy was defined as the expected number of bits in a binary number required to enumerate all the outcomes.  This was expressed as follows: entropy= H(x)=   In physics ( nature ) it is found that the probability distribution that represents a physical process is the Read more…

Quantum Entanglement and Spooky Action at a distance

————– distance = X nanoseconds light velocity ————–      Imagine you and a friend agree to go to separate locations and flip a coin and record on a clip board what you get.   Imagine afterward you get together and compare notes and see that the entire list is identical ?  That is what essentially Read more…

Physics Fun – Fisica Divertida Those Crazy Brazilians actually study alot

The brazilian economy is booming because it is one based more on commodities.  In spite of this the common person there is somewhat stymied in relation to career, jobs and starting businesses.  This is because they have a built in bias against this.  The ruling class there tends not to Read more…

Why We keep our thermostats set lower in summer than winter or – A little Physics for liberals : Listen up Joe Klein

Ok I know its hard for you liberals to understand mathematics.  Mathematics and physics are two subjects that are definitely skewed towards those of us with testorone.  Women are simply not present in proportional percentages in engineering classes.  This is not preconceit.  I have sadly seen it with my own Read more…

Quantum Computing Parallelism Explained

Assumptions: -1- You had a 3 bit register with each bit in a mix of both states —  states 0 and  state 1 -2- You then perform operations on the register When you perform the operation you will be performing the operation on all the possible values 000  through 111.  Thus is explained Read more…

Use of Maximum Entropy to explain the form of Energy States of an Electron in a Potential Well

The base state of an electron in an infinite potential well has the most "space" for the electron state.  Thus it has the maximum entropy. Take that same state and imagine pinching the electrons existence to nil in the middle of the trough.  Now you have state-2.  The electron now Read more…

The 20 Physical variables of a delicately balanced universe

Click on image for a larger version Its said that there are approximately 20 delicately balance variables that determine the balance of the universe we live in.  Its also said that if any one of them were different we would live in a very different universe. I have a slightly Read more…

Heuristic method of understanding the shapes of hydrogen atom electron orbitals

Click on the image for a larger version Have you ever wondered why the dumbell shape of the N=2 quantum state of the hydrogen atom.  I have! The Schrodinger wave equation gives you the results. But WHAT are you looking at? I have finally solved the problem of understanding the Read more…
