If a non-commuting measurement is made on a quantum property (like spin), this can be seen as the wavefunction being prepared. So you can't tell if the outcome represents the property, or that the property is prepared. However, if the property is prepared, we can predict the correlation with a...
If an entanglement experiment, whereby an entangled pair of particles is measured at both ends, is independent of the next entanglement experiment with another pair of entangled particles, how can there be a correlation? It seems that each independent run does not influence the next run, but...
all the references I can find on the net to justifying a correlation treat it as a matter of judgment, and, quite correctly, that it depends on the application.
But it seems to me that one could compare the fit to the data of a horizontal line (i.e. average y) with that of the linear regression...
Suppose we have two variables A and B. A has a truly random distribution over {0,1} with P(0)=P(1)=0.5 . B has the same distribution.
Now suppose that A and B always show both a 1 or both a 0. This would be a strong correlation between A and B.
Now could this be called 'a coincidence'? And if...

I have the following questions as homeworks and I would like to get help.
Question 1) Give the formal expression of the total number density of galaxies. Why is this expressoin problematic in practice?
Question 2) In practice one uses a numerical value for the number...
Suppose A is an ensemble of measurement events in the past.
Suppose B is an ensemble of measurement events in the present.
Suppose there is a correlation between A and B that stays the same over time.
Suppose we can manipulate the outcomes of B (for example by choosing the orientation of the...
OK, so, I've forgotten more statistics than my students will ever know, and I'm not too proud to ask for help, cuz I'm just blanking out on this. I would appreciate it if someone could patiently follow along and let me know what I've got right or wrong please.
My understanding of the chi-sqr is...
Hello everyone.
I stumbled across an article in the social sciences that had a correlation coefficient of r=0.93.
Being from a maths background and knowing nothing about things like social sciences, psychology, etc., is this r-value in these types of fields considered fairly strong, strong...

A couple of questions today. First. I am running a panel data regression test. First I check the correlations between the independent variables and the dependent variable. these are the results.
The D/(D+Em) is the dependent variable, and the independent are the 4 variables most adjacent...
Suppose we have two truly random sources A and B that generate bits ('0' or '1') synchronously. If we measure the correlation between the respective bits generated, we find a random, ie no, correlation.
Now suppose A and B are two detectors that register polarization-entangled photons passing...

I wasn't sure where to post this, I hope this was the right section.
I've been struggling quite a bit with implementing an autocorrelation code into my current project. The autocorrelation as it is now, is increasing exponentially from 1 at the start of my MC run, and hitting 2 halfway through...
I thought I understood the concept of a correlation function, but I having some doubts.
What exactly does a correlation function quantify and furthermore, what is a correlation length.
As far as I understand, a correlation between two variables ##X## and ##Y## quantifies how much the two...
First let me ask this:
Consider a pair of entangled photons fired at a respective detector after passing respective polarisation filters.
If a photon passes a polarisation filter, is it in a superposition of having passed and not having passed?
Is the measuring device (that detects the...
Consider the 2-point correlator of a real scalar field ##\hat{\phi}(t,\mathbf{x})##, $$\langle\hat{\phi}(t,\mathbf{x})\hat{\phi}(t,\mathbf{y})\rangle$$ How does one interpret this quantity physically? Is it quantifying the probability amplitude for a particle to be created at space-time point...
Suppose we have a source of polarization-entangled photons, that fires pairs of photons in opposite directions at two detectors with orientation-adjustable polarizationfilters in front of them. Obviously, there is a correlation between the orientation of the respective filters and the joint...
If we assume there is no counterfactual definiteness, would that mean that measurements on entangled particles needn't be correlated, for if you don't compare the results, you just don't know if they do?
I have a question that seems to reflect my main concern with QM. Here it is:
Consider a series of polarisation-entangled photon pairs that are sent in opposite direction to two measuring devices (e.g. at opposite ends of the universe). The measurement consists of detection of a photon after...
If I'm correct, a series of with respect to some property entangled particles exhibits a correlation between several measurements of that property by means of two measuring devices.
My question is: is it possible that between measurements the physical constitutions of the measuring devices...
Just taking an advance in what I want to learn someday:
I understand that decoherence and entanglement are more or less equivalent. So, I take it decoherence is in principle a process of entanglement.
Consider two particles A and B who are entangled. if A decoheres by interacting with particle...
I was wondering. In this example I use polarized photons, but maybe it is applicable to electrons and spin also.
We can prepare two completely unentangled polarized photons, and send them in opposite directions to two detectors preceded by a filter at particular angles. Both of them will show a...
Hello I have to variables X and Y, 50,000 in each row (a time series of 2 years). I am curious how to calculate a linear correlation between the two, for example if X decreases does Y increase or decrease.
Looking for formula or a MATLAB function :)
As I understand it, the 2-point fnuction is for 1 particle incoming, 1 particle outgoing. The 4-point function is for 2 particles incoming, 2 particles outgoing. Is this correct? So an N-point function describes N/2 incoming particles and N/2 outgoing particles?
Thanks!
