We devise a procedure for calculating boson realizations of canonical basis-states of SU$(n)$ for arbitrary $n$. We employ our boson realization to calculate Wigner $\mathcal{D}$-functions of SU$(n)$ in the canonical Gelfand-Tsetlin basis and connect these functions to outputs from multi-photon interferometry.

We introduce a non-spherical metric motivated from quantum gravity. We study the time evolution of scalar field induced gravity using numerical methods.

In Bohmian mechanics, quantum particles follow causal deterministic trajectories. These trajectories obey an equation of motion much like Newton's, with the addition of a "quantum potential" linked to the Schrödinger wave function. Quantum probabilities stem from the absence of precise knowledge of initial conditions, and they are recovered exactly if one assumes that initial particle...

We are pretty sure about four fundamental forces in the universe. Some of the forces are well behaved and can be explained in different context. Electromagnetism is among the well understood ones. On the other side, gravitational force seems to reveal different faces in various situation and trying to explain it in a unified theorem with other forces has not been successful yet. I have come to...

We consider the decay of “false kinks,'' that is, kinks formed in a scalar field theory with a pair of degenerate symmetry-breaking false vacua in 1+1 dimensions. The true vacuum is symmetric. A second scalar field and a peculiar potential are added in order for the kink to be classically stable. As with any tunneling event, the rate is proportional to $\exp{-S_E}$ where $S_E$ is the Euclidean...

Quantum walks are known to provide a universal platform for quantum algorithms and hence, are useful for quantum computation and information processing. Unlike other methods of simulating quantum protocols, quantum walks can be realized in classical systems. One of the interesting class of quantum walks is the electric quantum walk where the dynamics of the (charged) quantum walker is...
