2Physics Quote:
"The exchange character of identical particles plays an important role in physics. For bosons, such an exchange leaves their quantum state the same, while a single exchange between two fermions gives a minus sign multiplying their wave function. A single exchange between two Abelian anyons gives rise to a phase factor that can be different than 1 or -1, that corresponds to bosons or fermions, respectively. More exotic exchanging character are possible, namely non-Abelian anyons. These particles have their quantum state change more dramatically, when an exchange between them takes place, to a possibly different state." -- Jin-Shi Xu, Kai Sun, Yong-Jian Han, Chuan-Feng Li, Jiannis K. Pachos, Guang-Can Guo

Nuclear Fusion

Today we have 3 short postings on recent happenings in Fusion research.
Nuclear fusion is the power that drives our sun and thus our life.
Supporters of nuclear fusion argue that it has the potential to be a safe and
sustainable source of energy that does not produce any greenhouse-gas
emissions or long-lived nuclear waste. A fusion reactor would need just
100 grams of deuterium and 3 tons of natural lithium to produce a power
output of 1 GigaWatt, which is equivalent to a large power station
[lithium is needed to generate tritium].
So, follow our 3 postings below:

Mary Hodder on the Flickr - Yahoo ID flap
I was struck by Mary Hodder 's take on the Flickr - Yahoo ID issue because I think she does a better job of articulating the emotional attachment aspect than I did: "Yahoo reset my cookie last week for Flickr.
