    The concept “Out of sight, out of mind” has been repeatedly challenged by findings that show visual information biases behavior even without reaching consciousness. However, the depth and complexity of unconscious processing remains elusive. To tackle this issue, we examined whether high-level linguistic information, including syntax and semantics, can be processed without consciousness

    Born-Infeld Black Holes in 4D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet Gravity

    A novel four-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity was formulated by D. Glavan and C. Lin [Phys. Rev. Lett. 124, 081301 (2020)], which is intended to bypass the Lovelock's theorem and to yield a non-trivial contribution to the four-dimensional gravitational dynamics. However, the validity and consistency of this theory has been called into question recently. We study a static and spherically symmetric black hole charged by a Born-Infeld electric field in the novel four-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity. It is found that the black hole solution still suffers the singularity problem, since particles incident from infinity can reach the singularity. It is also demonstrated that the Born-Infeld charged black hole may be superior to the Maxwell charged black hole to be a charged extension of the Schwarzschild-AdS-like black hole in this new gravitational theory. Some basic thermodynamics of the black hole solution is also analyzed. Besides, we regain the black hole solution in the regularized four-dimensional Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity proposed by H. L\"u and Y. Pang [arXiv:2003.11552].Comment: 13 pages and 18 figures, published versio

    Entanglement criterion via general symmetric informationally complete measurements

    Full text link
    We study the quantum separability problem by using general symmetric informationally complete measurements and present a separability criterion for arbitrary dimensional bipartite systems. We show by detailed examples that our criterion is more powerful than the existing ones in entanglement detection.Comment: 8 pages, 5 figure
