Basic ideas of general relativity

General Relativity (GR) is a classical field theory (whatever that means, could be something like Electrodynamics or something like Fluiddynamics) There is no gravitational force. Principle of Mach: The distribution of matter and energy defines the geometry of space-time Principle of Equivalence: Acceleration = homogenous (in time and space) gravitational field; Principle of Covariance: All coordinate systems are equal.

Battery

Lithium metal-air batteries can store a tremendous amount of energy–in theory, more than 5,000 watt-hours per kilogram. That’s more than ten-times as much as today’s high-performance lithium-ion batteries, and more than another class of energy-storage devices: fuel cells.

Can a computer ask questions

Computers are useless. They can only give you answers. (Pablo Picasso) Is Picasso correct? In the scientific literature the question if a computer can be made to ask questions is hardly discussed.

Classical limit of quantum mechanics

The semi-classical limit corresponds to $ h\rightarrow 0$, which can be seen to be equivalent to $ m\rightarrow\infty $ , the mass increasing so that it behaves classically. (from http://en.

Gravitational Cherenkov Radiation

Cherenkov Radiation is a very interesting phenomenom. Recently I asked myself, if such a phenomenom allso exists for gravity in the sense, that if a particle moves faster than the speed of gravity in a medium, it should radiate gravitational cherenkov radiation.

Gravity

The basic equations are: $$G_{\mu \nu} + \Lambda g_{\mu \nu}= \frac{8\pi G}{c^4} T_{\mu \nu}$$ with $$G_{\mu\nu} = R_{\mu\nu} - \frac{1}{2} g_{\mu\nu}R$$ and $$T_{\mu \nu} = g_{\mu \alpha} g_{\nu \beta} T^{\alpha \beta}$$ and $$T^{\alpha \beta} , = \left(\rho + \frac{p}{c^2}\right)u^{\alpha}u^{\beta} + p g^{\alpha \beta}$$
