Authors: Cabezas, Carlos; Endo, Yasuki Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY CHEMICAL PHYSICS Publication date: 2020/01/14 DOI: 10.1039/c9cp05030b Abstract: Rapid reactions of carboxylic acids with Criegee intermediates provide efficient gas phase removal processes and are proposed to trigger the formation of new molecular compounds, which are implicated in the growth of atmospheric aerosols. The new adducts formed [...]

Closed timelike curves and chronology protection in quantum and classical simulators

2021-02-12T10:08:13+01:00Tags: , , |

Authors: Martin-Vazquez, Gonzalo; Sabin, Carlos Contribution: Article Journal: CLASSICAL AND QUANTUM GRAVITY Publication date: 2020/02/20 DOI: 10.1088/1361-6382/ab5f3f Abstract: In principe, general relativity seems to allow the existence of closed timelike curves (CTC). However, when quantum effects are considered, it is likely that their existence is prevented by some kind of chronological protection mechanism, as Hawking conjectured. [...]
