... is after all, first order in time and second order in space coordinates. This is not too hard
to deal with. We use the Heisenberg picture, so that space and time coordinates appear
together in the operators. We also need new wave equations, which depend on the spin of
particles involved. The second ...

Landauer's principle is a central example of the connection of information theory
and thermodynamics. However, several publications have discussed Landauer's
principle and the second law of thermodynamics in the quantum regime and
claimed their breaking. If true, these ...
Using Boolean Logic to Research Quantum Field Theory
... Dr.Klauber describes the information he gathered on Quantum Field Theory as all the subject he
compiled over 20 years ago when he first studied it. He also used the same description of the bird's eye

... Now a less sober idea
seriously, let’s reverse a fifty-year effort to
construct a mathematical foundation for field theory and
instead seek a field theoretic foundation for mathematics.

Topological quantum field theory
A topological quantum field theory (or topological field theory or TQFT) is a quantum field theory which computes topological invariants.Although TQFTs were invented by physicists, they are also of mathematical interest, being related to, among other things, knot theory and the theory of four-manifolds in algebraic topology, and to the theory of moduli spaces in algebraic geometry. Donaldson, Jones, Witten, and Kontsevich have all won Fields Medals for work related to topological field theory.In condensed matter physics, topological quantum field theories are the low energy effective theories of topologically ordered states, such as fractional quantum Hall states, string-net condensed states, and other strongly correlated quantum liquid states.
