Research Highlights

  • Prof. Goyal publishes new article "Derivation of Quantum Theory from Feynman's Rules"

    Building on his previous work showing how to derive Feynman's rules from simpler assumptions, Prof. Goyal's recent article now shows how to derive the rest of the standard von Neumann quantum formalism starting from Feynman's rules, and how to derive the rules for composite systems. The full article is available here.

  • New Results on Supersymmetry

    Using data collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, SUNY physicists Julian Bouffard, Jesse Ernst, Adam Fischer, Vivek Jain, and collaborator Stefan Guindon, have recently made public results that put tight constraints on the existence of particles predicted by Supersymmetry, a very attractive extension of the Standard Model of Particle Physics.

  • Prof. Philip Goyal writes new article "Informational Approach to Identical Particles in Quantum Theory"

    Prof. Goyal's article, on the derivation of the symmetrization postulate which is needed to describe identical particles in quantum theory, is available here.
