DOC: QUANTUM MECHANICS AND THE GEOMETRY OF S PACETIME


Incorporating Quantum Mechanics A simple approach • General relativity is a classical field theory • We should quantize it • It is hard to change the shape of spacetime • For most situations - quantum fields in a fixed geometry is a good approximation • General relativity as an effective field theory - systematic low energy approximation....

  SOLID MECHANICS

... THE APPLICATION OF THE PRINCIPLES OF MECHANIC S TO BULK MATTER IS CONVE NTIONALLY DIVIDED INTO THE MECHANICS OF FLUIDS AND THE MECHANICS OF SOLIDS . THE ENTIRE SUBJECT IS OFTEN CALLED CONTINUUM MECHANICS , PARTICULARLY WHEN WE ADOPT THE USEFUL MODEL OF MATTER AS BEING CONTINUOUSLY DIVISIBLE, MAKING NO REFERENCE TO ITS DISCRETE STRUCTURE AT MICROSCOPIC LENGTH SCALES WELL BELOW THOSE OF THE APPLICATION OR PHENOMENON OF INTEREST. ...

PREVIOUSLY, WE REPORTED CHANGES IN THE CONTRACTILITY OF ENGINEERED VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE TISSUE THAT APPEARED TO BE CORRELATED WITH THE SHAPE OF THE CONSTITUENT CELLS, SUPPORTING THE COMMONLY HELD BELIEF THAT ELONGATED MUSCLE GEOMETRY MAY ALLOW FOR THE BETTER CONTRACTILE TONE MODULATION REQUIRED IN RESPONSE TO CHANGES IN BLOOD FLOW AND PRESSURE. TO TEST THIS HYPOTHESIS MORE RIGOROUSLY, ...
