Are there really conformal frames? Uniqueness of affine inflation. (arXiv:1802.01247v2 [gr-qc] UPDATED)  hep-th updates on on 2018-4-28 8:09am GMT Authors: Hemza Azri Here we concisely review the nonminimal coupling dynamics of a single scalar field in the context of purely affine gravity and extend the study to multifield dynamics. The coupling is performed via an affine connection and its associated… Read more →

H-theorem and Maxwell Demon in Quantum Physics. (arXiv:1804.06886v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on on 2018-4-21 2:11am GMT Authors: N.S. Kirsanov, A.V. Lebedev, I.A. Sadovskyy, M.V. Suslov, V.M. Vinokur, G. Blatter, G.B. Lesovik The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that temporal evolution of an isolated system occurs with non-diminishing entropy. In quantum realm, this holds for energy-isolated systems the evolution of which is described by the so-called unital… Read more →

A Finite Theory of Qubit Physics. (arXiv:1804.01734v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on on 2018-4-07 1:45am GMT Authors: T.N.Palmer Hardy’s axiomatic approach to the quantum theory of discrete Hilbert Spaces reveals that just one principle distinguishes it from classical probability theory: there should be continuous (and hence infinitesimal) reversible transformations between any pair of pure states – the single word `continuous’ giving… Read more →
