Category: Quantum Mechanics

Quantum mechanics is a sub-discipline of physics that describes the behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic scales. It is a fundamental theory that underlies many areas of modern physics, including particle physics, condensed matter physics, and quantum field theory.

Quantum mechanics is characterized by its probabilistic nature, where the behavior of particles is described by wave functions that represent the probability of finding a particle in a certain state. It also includes concepts such as superposition, entanglement, and uncertainty.

Quantum mechanics has many practical applications, including in the development of quantum computers, cryptography, and sensors. It also plays a crucial role in our understanding of the behavior of atoms and molecules, the properties of materials, and the behavior of fundamental particles in high-energy physics experiments.
