For it, in 1933, he received the Nobel Prize (together with Paul Dirac). It contains the term Ψ, refered somewhat improperly as "wave function". The significance of it was not understood, untill Max Born interpreted it as defining the probability of finding a particle in a determinate place of space. He received the Nobel Prize for itin 1932. The possibility can be represented by a Gauss curve, with maximum in the center and coming assyntotically to zero int he extremities. The mathematical formalism adopted leaves clear that in the instant the location of the particle is made, all probabilities desapear. Stangelly, since the formulation to this day, numerous discussions about the significance of this disapearance occur, maintaining that there is something misterious in it. Nevertheless, when we have a dice in hand before we throw it the possibility of each face falling upside is one to six. In the moment it falls upon the table and immobilize, it's clear one can nomore speak in probabilities, as one of the faces was defined. Its obvious, there is nothing misterious in it, as even Einstein and Niels Bohr concurred.<br /><br />It's what occurs when one imagines Physics necessarilly must be described by mathematical formulas, even when they are not needed, as is the case. In this love by mistery, even today is frequent the undertanding that the wave function significs that the particle is in all places at the same time, and quantic theory makes possible the creation on a computer capable of realizing simultaneously infinite mathematical operations, a thing that would be useful, by instance, in braking chiptographed texts.<br /><br />Another common mistake that has the same origin consists in Hugh Everett's "multiple universes interpretation", that erroniously affirms the objective reality of the universal wave function.<br /><br />Fernando Arthur Tollendal Pacheco<br />fernandoarthur@gmail.comUnknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16651924473655855091noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-32927469237085537952015-06-19T03:52:06.769-07:002015-06-19T03:52:06.769-07:00A gallon of gasoline is cheaper than a gallon of b...A gallon of gasoline is cheaper than a gallon of bottled water and they complain.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
