This blog was started by a PhD student in Bose-Einstein Condensation (Theoretical Atomic Physics) in a US University, to write something on Quantum Mechanics and the phenomena which can be better explained quantum mechanically. The blogger was born on the lap of the HIMALAYAS !

God does not play dice with the universe !
No one can say for sure which face is turned up when a dice is rolled in a game of dice. One can say something like - the chance of getting a 6 in a single roll of a dice is 1/6 and so on. Quantum physics also deals with the probability of occurrence of some event or existence of something rather than the certainty of it. In most of the cases, we find the probability of occurrence of any quantum mechanical event or the uncertainty that exists in its measurement. Heisenberg, Born and other quantum physicists were in favor of the probabilistic nature of the atomic and subatomic phenomena which Einstein did not like. In his disagreements of such 'may be' kind of thing, Einstein said that - 'God does not play dice with the universe'. But the winner were the quantum physicists in the sense that the probabilistic nature of quantum physics was shown experimentally and a new discipline was established !
