Pascual Jordan’s many innovations made him a pioneer in the field of quantum mechanics, but his genius, and his legacy, has been overshadowed by his support of the Nazi party, and Adolf Hitler.
Quantum mechanics is the most accurate (and strangest) theory in the history of physics. Yet it has great difficulty making accurate predictions for “many-body” systems — those involving a large number of particles. Physicists Nikolai Prokof’ev and Boris Svistunov at the University of Massachusetts Amherst with three alumni of their group propose a novel solution: […]
