The interesting thing about trying to unravel the laws of nature is that yes, we have found some laws. We understand gravity to some extent. We understand the quantum world with some extent. But we don’t understand everything. We know that there are some laws missing, laws that we haven’t… Continue Reading The Information Paradox: Do Black Holes “Bleach” Cosmic History? With Christophe Galfard.
Black holes are one of the strangest things in existence. They don’t seem to make any sense at all. Where do they come from… …and what happens if you fall into one? Stars are incredibly massive collections of mostly hydrogen atoms that collapsed from enormous gas cloud under their own… Continue Reading Black Holes Explained – From Birth to Death
Watchmen is one of the most popular and influential comic books ever, written in the 80s by English wizard Alan Moore. Watchmen is a superhero story that questions the idea of a hero – which is symbolised by this bloody smiley face. The smiley is the ultimate simplistic cartoon, representing… Continue Reading Watchmen Explained (original comic)
Ankerberg: Alright. Now, we’re going to show you a little bit of this complexity, and the big question that we’re going to is, where did this information come from? If you’re starting from zero, could this information have come about by chance? Natural selection? Alright, so let’s watch this animation… Continue Reading How Complex is DNA and Where Did the Information in DNA come from?
In all modes of communication, in general the communication is not error free. We may be able to reduce the accuracy in transmission in digital systems by reducing the probability of error that is Pe. Let me say that probability of error is denoted by Pe, but it appears that,… Continue Reading Mod-01 Lec-01 Introduction to Information Theory and Coding
I am Fumio Hiroshima of the Faculty of Mathematics. I research mathematical physics, especially ‘Quantum Field Theory’ and ‘Infinite Dimensional Analysis’. Modern mathematics is split into three main fields, algebra, geometry, and analysis. My field of research is called ‘quantum field theory.’ While quantum field theory is a physics subject,… Continue Reading Professor Fumio Hiroshima (Faculty of Mathematics,Kyushu University)
