    Event-based simulation of single-photon beam splitters and Mach-Zehnder interferometers

    We demonstrate that networks of locally connected processing units with a primitive learning capability exhibit behavior that is usually only attributed to quantum systems. We describe networks that simulate single-photon beam-splitter and Mach-Zehnder interferometer experiments on a causal, event-by-event basis and demonstrate that the simulation results are in excellent agreement with quantum theory.Comment: EuroPhys.

    Simulation of Quantum Computation: A deterministic event-based approach

    Get PDF
    We demonstrate that locally connected networks of machines that have primitive learning capabilities can be used to perform a deterministic, event-based simulation of quantum computation. We present simulation results for basic quantum operations such as the Hadamard and the controlled-NOT gate, and for seven-qubit quantum networks that implement Shor's numbering factoring algorithm.Comment: J.

    Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli with particular attention to the German outbreak strain O104:H4

    Get PDF
    This review deals with the epidemiology and ecology of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC), a subset of the verocytotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC), and subsequently discusses its public health concern. Attention is also given to the outbreak strain O104:H4, which has been isolated as causative agent of the second largest outbreak of the hemolytic uremic syndrome worldwide, which started in Germany in May 2011. This outbreak strain is not an EHEC as such but possesses an unusual combination of EHEC and enteroaggregative E. coli (EAggEC) virulence properties

    Cancellation of quantum mechanical higher loop contributions to the gravitational chiral anomaly

    Full text link
    We give an explicit demonstration, using the rigorous Feynman rules developed in~\0^{1}, that the regularized trace \tr \gamma_5 e^{-\beta \Dslash^2} for the gravitational chiral anomaly expressed as an appropriate quantum mechanical path integral is β\beta-independent up to two-loop level. Identities and diagrammatic notations are developed to facilitate rapid evaluation of graphs given by these rules.Comment: 10 pages, LaTeX and psfig (many figures
