121. General Relativity And Cosmology
An online notes from the University of British Columbia featuring simple explanations of cosmological phenomena.
Next: Astronomy
As Elementary Particle Physicists direct their attention ``down'' toward the indescribably tiny, so Cosmologists turn their gaze ``upward'' toward the unfathomably huge. Of course, these days both are increasingly likely to be incarnate in the same individual - I'll get to that later. As one who has never looked through a telescope larger than I could carry, I am certain to give short shrift to the magnificent observational science of astronomy , which provides cosmology (a theoretical discipline) with all its data. But a summary of the former without good colour plates of star fields and nebulae would be a terrible waste anyway, so I hope I have motivated the curious to go out and read a good Astronomy book on their own. Moreover, I am so ignorant of General Relativity and most of the fine points of Cosmology that I really have no business writing about either. Therefore I must content myself with a justification in terms of my ``unique point of view,'' whereby I excuse the following distortions.

A group led by Professors Alexey Bezryadin and Paul Goldbart at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has recently demonstrated that a multiwall carbon nanotube (MWNT) can be switched between metallic and semiconducting states by threading a strong magnetic field through the tube, a phenomenon predicted by theorists some years ago but never before clearly seen in individual molecules.

    131. Time Travel - Fact Or Fiction?
    The science fiction paradigm, conservation laws, general relativity, paradoxes, tachyons and graphs.
    [Physics FAQ] Updated 1994;
    Original by Jon J. Thaler.
    Time Travel - Fact or Fiction?
    We define time travel to mean departure from a certain place and time followed (from the traveller's point of view) by arrival at the same place at an earlier (from the sedentary observer's point of view) time. Time travel paradoxes arise from the fact that departure occurs after arrival according to one observer and before arrival according to another. In the terminology of special relativity time travel implies that the timelike ordering of events is not invariant. This violates our intuitive notions of causality. However, intuition is not an infallible guide, so we must be careful. Is time travel really impossible, or is it merely another phenomenon where "impossible" means "nature is weirder than we think?" The answer is more interesting than you might think.
    The Science Fiction Paradigm
    The B-movie image of the intrepid chrononaut climbing into his time machine and watching the clock outside spin backwards while those outside the time machine watch the him revert to callow youth is, according to current theory, impossible. In current theory, the arrow of time flows in only one direction at any particular place. If this were not true, then one could not impose a 4-dimensional co-ordinate system on space-time, and many nasty consequences would result. Nevertheless, there is a scenario which is not ruled out by present knowledge. This usually requires an unusual spacetime topology (due to wormholes or strings in general relativity) which has not yet seen, but which may be possible. In this scenario the universe is well behaved in every local region; only by exploring the global properties does one discover time travel.

    If you like science and math and if you like to explore why things are the way they are, you will like physics.
    The following section includes questions frequently asked by prospective Physics majors. What do physicists study?
    Physicists study everything from the dynamics of the grains of sand on a beach to the formation of galaxies, from elementary particles to semiconductors, from fiber optics to computers. Physics is an experimental science, with nature remaining the ultimate authority on the correctness or incorrectness of any theory. Physics, as a field, naturally separates into two divisions: Experimental and Theoretical. Experimentalists typically work in a Laboratory, directly testing theories and measuring physical phenomena. Theorists work with experimentalists, trying to explain their measurements, or proposing new experiments. How do I know if physics is for me?

    THE WAR PERIOD, 1941-1945
    Preparations During the period 1935-1941, research activities in the physics department proceeded almost as if America's entry into World War II had been forseen and that the department would play an important role in the associated war effort. The number of tenure/tenure-track faculty almost doubled, increasing from 7 to 13 during this period and the research productivity as indexed by publications in the Physical Review went up proportionally to nearly 25 publications per year. It was during this period that the department became a major player in nuclear physics research, with the construction of a Van de Graaff accelerator and, more importantly, a cyclotron which would give the department unique capabilities for carrying out research during war time. As envisioned, the Van de Graaff accelerator was designed to produce a stream of neutrons through ``high energy" deuteron-deuteron collisions with the resultant neutron flux then being used to study neutron diffraction and neutron activation of heavy elements. Three graduate students, R.E. Schreiber, R.E. Holmquist and W.A. Miller, worked on and completed the construction of this accelerator in 1937 at a total cost of only $825.62 above the cost of labor! Unfortunately, the resultant 250 KeV neutron beam only had a flux of about 0.25 milliampere which was too small to be useful for studying neutron diffraction. However, two years later in 1939, following the discovery in Germany by Otto Hahn, Lisa Meitner, and Fritz Strassmann of the fission of uranium when bombarded with low energy neutrons, the Van de Graaff was put to use to study fission fragments. Detection of the fragments was done by the use of photographic plates.

    138. Dr. Mendel Sachs
    On compatibility of the quantum theory and theory of general relativity by Dr. Mendel Sachs
    The Future of Physics? My name is Mendel Sachs. My subject is theoretical physics. I have recently become aware of this excellent means of communicating ideas to my fellow physicists. I would like to ask your indulgence in some of my thoughts about physics today. I have discovered during my professional career that in order to increase our comprehension of the material world, it is necessary to ask significant questions and then try to answer them, as completely and rigorously as possible no matter how hard this may seem to be at the outset. A "significant question" to me is one whose answer could possibly increase our understanding. Of course, there is no guarantee at the outset that the question would turn out to be significant in the final analysis. On the other hand, it is often clear when a question (that a great deal of attention may be given to) is not significant! Let me start out, then, with some questions that I believe are significant, and then try to answer them, in my view. 1) What do we presently believe are the most fundamental assertions of the laws of nature? My answer is: The bases of the quantum theory and the theory of relativity. I am not referring here to mathematical expressions of these theories; I refer to the basic concepts that underlie these expressions. If you do not agree with this answer, or those to the questions below, please respond with your own views.

Contact Us The Physics major at Otterbein College prepares students interested in the natural sciences for a wide variety of careers, from academic or industrial research and development, to medicine, law or business, by providing training in problem solving and analytical thinking. Introductory physics is also taken by students majoring in Chemistry and Life Science who wish to understand the physical principles applied in their own disciplines. The Physical Science major prepares students for a career in teaching in grades 7-12. Otterbein offers a program in Engineering in cooperation with Washington University in St. Louis and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland leading to a B.A. degree from Otterbein College and a B.S. degree in Engineering from the partner institution. Students in this program commonly attend Otterbein for three years and Washington University or Case Western for two. The cooperative engineering program is an attractive alternative to traditional engineering curricula which are typically highly structured and require longer than four years to complete. Program graduates are "liberally educated engineers" with a professional advantage due to the distinctive range of their skills, from problem solving to communication.

    140. Hiroshima And Nagasaki For Physics Teachers
    Information on a workshop for physics teachers who wish to explore creation of a general education course or units about the effects of the nuclear policies of nations.
    Hiroshima and Nagasaki for College Teachers A One-week Workshop, June 28 - July 2, 2004
    Resources and planning for a general education course or units
    dealing with All Things Nuclear and The Legacy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
    Guide: Raymond G. Wilson, Ph.D., Emeritus Associate Professor,
    Physics Department, Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL 61702
    Supported by The Cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
    Project Illinois Wesleyan University has unusual success with its course, " Problems of Nuclear Disarmament ." It deals with what journalists have voted to be " The Story of the Century ." Students apparently wish to know about their futures and the challenges they may have to face.
    The instructor (RGW) began teaching about the effects of nuclear war in 1959. He has spent seven summers of study in Hiroshima. In 1979 the " Problems of Nuclear Disarmament " course was created.
    Perhaps on your campus there already exists a course which deals with the problems of nuclear war, and the social, biological, and physical effects on the cities and people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki wherein the death toll was well beyond 200,000. We believe such courses are rare. We further believe that college teachers can develop unique understandings and approaches to the problems brought about by contemporary threats to world peace, including nuclear weapons.
    In 2002 and 2003 this one-week Workshop was offered solely for physics teachers. We wish now to make it available to all college teachers.
