    A Green's function for Stokes equation

    So I've just started learning about Greens functions and I think there is some confusion. We start with the Stokes equations in Cartesian coords for a point force. $$-\nabla \textbf{P} + \nu \nabla^2 \textbf{u} + \textbf{F}\delta(\textbf{x})=0$$ $$\nabla \cdot \textbf{u}=0$$ We can apply the...

    A Stokeslet derivation (expression 9 on this document derivation). I understand the need for substitution etc into the integral. What puzzles me is how the integral equals what it does. If...

    A Knill-Laflamme condition Shors code

    The K-L condition has projection operators onto the codespace for the error correction code, as I understand it. My confusion I think comes primarily from what exactly these projections are? As in, how would one find these projections for say, the Shor 9-qubit code?

    A Derivation of recovery channel for bit flip error

    In general, if R is the recovery channel of an error channel ε, with state ρ, then and according to these lecture slides, we get the final result highlighted in red for a bit flip error channel. I am simply asking how one reaches this final result. Thank you (a full-ish derivation can be found...

    A Exploring Free and Interaction Terms of L in Quantum Field Theory

    With free part L=-½(∂Φ)^2 -½m^2 Φ^2 and interaction term L=½gΦ^2 Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    A Line element geometry

    There isn't much unfortunately. All we were given was the line element and range, the fact that its a two dimensional geometry and told to calculate what geometry that is.

    A Line element geometry

    Apologies for the notation. Yes you are right in what I meant. I don't think I recall being taught that the determinant being less than or equal to zero means the metric is lorentzian. Would 'Lorentzian' actually count as the geometry then?

    A Line element geometry

    I've tried spherical, but (I don't think) the line element given can be converted successfully. Also the its meant to be a 2-D geometry (unless it means a 2-D geometry embedded in 3 dimensions). It also doesn't specify whether or not the coordinate system is orthogonal. I'm at a bit of a loss...

    A Line element geometry

    i'm trying to find what sort of 2-d geometry this system is in, I've been given the line element 𝑑𝑠2=−sin𝜃cos𝜃sin𝜙cos𝜙[𝑑𝜃2+𝑑𝜙2]+(sin2𝜃sin2𝜙+cos2𝜃cos2𝜙)𝑑𝜃𝑑𝜙 where 0≤𝜙<2𝜋 and 0≤𝜃<𝜋/2 Im just not sure where to start. I've tried converting the coordinates to cartesian to see if it yields a...

    I Parallel transport on flat space

    When parallel transporting a vector along a straight line on flat space, does the connection (when calculating the covariant derivative) always equal zero? Do things change at all when using an arbitrary connection, rather than Christoffel symbols?

    A Line element geometry

    Is there a general method to determine what geometry some line element is describing? I realize that you can tell whether a space is flat or not (by diagonalising the matrix, rescaling etc), but given some arbitrary line element, how does one determine the shape of the space? Thanks
