Thread Name: BS: Schrödinger’s Cat has a friend
Subject: RE: BS: Schrödinger’s Cat has a friend
This thread started with an article from Scientific American which is in the news again for endorsing a political candidate for the first time in 175 years.
Regarding this thread basicly about Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which defends the small quantum mechanics and Einsteins large relativity, the two were brought closer together by Paul Dirac who used both relativity and quantum mechanics in his equation. In particle physics, the Dirac equation is a relativistic wave equation formulated
in 1928. It describes fields corresponding to elementary spin-½ particles as a vector of four complex numbers, in contrast to the Schrödinger equation which described a field of only one complex value.
Dirac went on to succesfully predict antimatter.
