Propulsion Universelle et Récupération d'Énergie (PURE; English: Universal Propulsion and Energy Recovery) was a motorsports engineering company founded by former British American Racing team principal Craig Pollock in 2011. It aimed to design and manufacture engines for use under the 2014 Formula One technical regulations, that mandate a switch from the current normally aspirated V8 engines to turbocharged V6 engines. The company was linked to Mecachrome, and employed former members of Renault and Peugeot's 1990s Formula One engine programmes.In July 2011, the company secured the services of Gilles Simon, formerly head of Scuderia Ferrari's engine department and the FIA technical director for powertrain development. The recruitment was controversial, with several teams and manufacturers – particularly Renault – expressing concerns that Simon's previous position with the FIA would grant him access to sensitive technical data about engine designs that could potentially be used by PURE in the development of their own engine. Simon and PURE rejected these suggestions, stating that the process of developing the 2014 engine regulations had been transparent, and that all parties involved had access to the same information so that no individual group would have an advantage. PURE used Toyota Motorsport's facilities in Cologne, Germany, whilst also maintaining a French base. In July 2012, PURE suspended its engine programme due to a lack of funding and later ceased operations.
I am approaching an old age of 40, and now pursuing an MSc in Engineering without a thesis nor project.
Before that I pursued MScs in Physics and Maths, but never finished writing my theses.
I have a sort of perturbed attitude towards both Maths and Physics, I mean something really pure in maths...

Quantum states are most often described by the wavefunction ,##\Psi##. Variable ,##\Psi(x_1x_2\dots x_n) \Psi^*(x_1x_2\dots x_n)## defines probability density function of the system.
Quantum states can also be described by the density matrices (operators). For a pure state, density matrix is...

I have some basic questions about mixed states and entanglement.
1. Do mixed states always imply that the states are entangled and vice versa?
2. Can mixed states ever be separable?

I guess USB powerbank have switching power supply for the 5V output? I need a pure 5V power bank that doesn't use switching power supply but just pure output like the 3.7v lithium battery in cell phone. And why doesn't lithium battery doesn't produce 5 volt dc output?
This is another application of using Taylor recurrences (open access) to solve ODEs to arbitrarily high order (e.g. 10th order in the example invocation). It illustrates use of trigonometric recurrences, rather than the product recurrences in my earlier Lorenz ODE posts.

Hi, I'm currently working on showing the relation of quantum fidelity:

Hi,
My question is:
If a constant load is applied at the free end of a perfectly elastic cantilever beam, would the beam oscillate about a mean position? Or would it eventually come to rest at the equilibrium position? There are no damping effects.
Thank you.
