Fluid dynamics and quantum mechanics

Monday, April 5th, 2021

Message from Russ Davis:

The youtube video at the link below may be of interest (presented by Cambridge University Press webinar series). It details some recent macroscopic fluid experiments that result in quantum-like statistics, so fluid dynamics and quantum mechanics could have significant commonality.

John W. Bush of MIT proposes and explores a new, trajectory-based description of quantumdynamics informed by the hydrodynamic system.(Jun 15, 2020)

You may find these webpages more useful than the fast-paced audio English language youtube video.

New version of ECE textbook

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

In the ECE textbook, chapter 7 on dynamics has been added. After electrodynamics, this is the first chapter on mechanics and dynamics. This is the preliminary version for proof reading:

Two chapters on unified fluid dynamics and gravitation will follow.
