Chaos theory

Chaos theory is the branch of mathematics that studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. This means that small differences in initial conditions (such as those arising due to rounding errors in numerical computation) can give rise to vastly different outcomes. Chaos theory is often used in the physical … Read more

Quantum computer

A quantum computer is a computer that uses quantum mechanical phenomena to perform calculations. These computers are different in many ways from the computers that are in use today. For example, a quantum computer can be in multiple states simultaneously, whereas a classical computer can only be in one state at a time. This allows … Read more

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC, GMT, CUT)

UTC, which stands for Coordinated Universal Time, is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. It is effectively a successor to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). UTC is maintained by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), which is an international standardization organization. The BIPM sets the UTC standard and … Read more
