Talk at the KITP Conference: Snowmass Theory Frontier - Feb. 23, 2022
We discuss the status and some perspectives of relativistic quantum physics.
It is shown that physical fields are formed by physical structures, which in
their properties are differential-geometrical structures.
These results have been obtained due to using the mathematical apparatus of
skew-symmetric differential forms.
This apparatus discloses the controlling role of the conservation laws in
evolutionary processes, which proceed in material media and lead to origination
of physical structures and forming physical fields and manifolds.
The slogan information is physical has been so successful that it led to some
excess. Classical and quantum information can be thought of independently of
any physical implementation. Pure information tasks can be realized using such
abstract c- and qu-bits, but physical tasks require appropriate physical
realizations of c- or qu-bits. As illustration we consider the problem of
In past few years the flavor physics made important transition from the work
on confirmation the standard model of particle physics to the phase of search
for effects of a new physics beyond standard model. In this paper we review
current state of the physics of b-hadrons with emphasis on results with a
sensitivity to new physics.
Classical physics fails where quantum physics prevails. This common
understanding applies to quantum phenomena that are acknowledged to be beyond
the reach of classical physics. Here, we make an attempt at weakening this
solid belief that classical physics is unfit to explain the quantum world. The
trial run is the quantization of the free radiation field that will be
addressed by following a strategy that is free from operators or
An old branch of mathematics, Topology, has opened the road to the discovery
of new phases of matter. A hidden topology in the energy spectrum is the key
for novel conducting/insulating properties of topological matter.
Physics Education Research frequently investigates what students studying
physics do on small time scales (e.g. single courses, observations within
single courses), or post-education time scales (e.g., what jobs do physics
majors get?) but there is little research into how students get from the
beginning to the end of a physics degree. Our work attempts to visualize
students paths through the physics major, and quantitatively describe the
students who take physics courses, receive physics degrees, and change degree
paths into and out of the physics program at Michigan State University.
We discuss a nexus among quantum topology, quantum physics and quantum
