Consider the following situation. A certain quantity of ideal monatomic gas (say one mole) is confined in a cylinder by a piston and is maintained at constant temperature (say $T_0$) by thermal ...
Knowing some about thermodynamics and reactions, I do understand how it can be shown that a change is reversible. But irreversible? Why can't it be that a change that was deemed irreversible thousands ...
When a quantum system is perturbatively coupled to a continuum of states, one uses the Fermi's golden rule to compute the rate of transition form an initial state to a set of states contained in an ...
I am looking for a resource that clearly exposes the concepts of a particle source and a particle detector in the context of Quantum Field theory. I want to understand Irreversibility in this context. ...
