Video: Physics map includes ‘chasm of ignorance,’ illustrating unknowns between quantum physics and theory of relativity

By Faye Oney / April 5, 2017

Physicists have their work cut out for them as they attempt to narrow the “chasm of ignorance” between quantum physics and the theory of relativity. Dominic Walliman breaks it down to the simplest terms in his “Map of Physics” video.

How does glass form? MDI research team set to get some answers on International Space Station

By Eileen De Guire / August 15, 2016

In a recent paper, Materials Development Inc. (Arlington Heights, Ill.) approached the problem of topological constraint theory from a different theoretical angle—the team wanted to see whether approaching structure from the theoretical perspective of the thermodynamic model of ideal associated solutions could describe temperature-dependent structure changes.
