Qubits, which can be made of atoms or subatomic particles, behave according to the laws of quantum mechanics.
Quantum mechanics seems strange to us because the way its rules play out at the scale of humans - much, much bigger than atoms - 'disguises' them and makes them look like a different sort of physics (i.e.
One of the strange predictions of quantum mechanics is that energy comes in tiny little chunks called 'quanta'.
The considerations of Section 3 reinforce the underlying physical building blocks of quantum mechanics: the superposition principle, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and wave-particle duality.
The metaphysical/ontological problem of quantum mechanics is that, while it is one of the most successful theories in the history of science, it is predictive only.
(1) In this formalism of quantum mechanics like the ordinary one, time-dependent form of Schrodinger equation in q-deformed quantum mechanics is written in form of
The following questions were devised to test the logic of key elements of quantum mechanics. We let the published definitions and explanations of the theory be our guide to answering the questions, except where new or additional logical conclusions or inferences could be drawn.
In roughly the past decade, all of the strange and seemingly non-physical behaviors of quantum mechanics, which were previously believed impossible in the macro world, have been replicated in numerous fluid mechanics experiments.
It's intended for use as a two-semester course of study, can be used either by professors as a sourcebook for lecture materials or by students pursuing courses in quantum mechanics, and it discusses different approaches to calculation from Born series and approximations to what happens in the case of degenerate unperturbed eigenfunctions.

"Quantum mechanics shows that entanglement can exist across the event horizon, between particles inside and outside the black hole.
Table 1 & 2 show the similarities and difference between Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity.
