Xiao-Gang Wen and the 500 phases of matter

Posted By News On December 21, 2012 - 10:00pm

Forget solid, liquid, and gas: there are in fact more than 500 phases of matter. In a major paper in today's issue of Science, Perimeter Faculty member Xiao-Gang Wen reveals a modern reclassification of all of them.

Using modern mathematics, Wen and collaborators reveal a new system which can, at last, successfully classify symmetry-protected phases of matter. Their new classification system will provide insight about these quantum phases of matter, which may in turn increase our ability to design states of matter for use in superconductors or quantum computers.

This paper, titled, "Symmetry-Protected Topological Orders in Interacting Bosonic Systems," is a revealing look at the intricate and fascinating world of quantum entanglement, and an important step toward a modern reclassification of all phases of matter.

This anti-knot is for you. By Mark A. Kroll 48223

I only fell an inch, when I found electrons live existentially.

I recovered & I twirled, while I played this field symphony.

What then is this quantum epiphany ?
Pounding as I am, on this ethereal tabulary.

What can it be ? This counter-intuitive, anti nodal, orbital anomaly.
At first glance, it’s surface appears to be unipolar charge parity.
At it’s core, it is a conservation of collisional angularly-attenuated field energy.
Which necessarily is, unaffected by gravity.
Else, all would spin down, to a state of zero entropy.
Rightfully, it is Causal Shared Symmetry,
which redefines multi-dimensional topographical geometry.
Although it is only a theory, it evaporates Loop Quantum Gravity & its Great Grand Daddy - String Theory.
How does one attempt to explain this temporally?
You can’t. You explain everything else away heuristically.
