NOUN
- the branch of quantum physics that is concerned with the theory of fields; it was motivated by the question of how an atom radiates light as its electrons jump from excited states
How To Use quantum field theory In A Sentence
- In physics, the "graviton" is a hypothetical elementary particle that mediates the force of gravity in the framework of quantum field theory. American Chronicle
- The usual group of spacetime symmetries in relativistic quantum field theory is called the Poincaré group.
- They are not invariant under the T (time reversal) operation of quantum field theory, as has been experimentally verified in the decay of the neutral kaon. Arrow of Time FAQ
- Acquaints readers with the main concepts and literature of elementary particle physics and quantum field theory.
- P. P.arle was the first to propose [P.arle, 1990] a relativistic generalization of CSL to a quantum field theory describing a fermion field coupled to a meson scalar field enriched with the introduction of stochastic and nonlinear terms. Collapse Theories
- The answer to this question takes the discussion deep into the realm of quantum field theory.
- They were more interested in a competing theory called supergravity, and in more traditional quantum field theory sans gravity, the standard model. Euclid’s Window
- This is not an objection to Bohmian mechanics but merely a recognition that quantum field theory explains a great deal more than does nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, whether in orthodox or Bohmian form. Bohmian Mechanics
- In modern quantum field theory a classical field is quantized and particles arise as a result.
- Quantum electrodynamics, and its expansion to the electroweak Standard Model of particle physics, is also a quantum field theory.
