Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm.

In these proceedings of the second international conference on smarandache type notions in mathematics and quantum physics (december 21-24, 2000, university ofcraiova, romania; organizers: v. Seleacu and m. L perez) are collected articles and notes: in mathematics: related to smarandache anti-geometry, function, f-inferior part function, k-k additive relationships, 2-2 subtractive relationships, sequences, coprime functions, double factorial function, magic squares, prob...

Introduction: Many of the modern ideas in cosmology can be explained without the need to discuss General Relativity. The present chapter represents an attempt to do this based entirely on Newtonian mechanics. The equations describing the velocity (called the Friedmann equation) and acceleration of the universe are derived from Newtonian mechanics and also the cosmological constant is introduced within a Newtonian framework. The equations of state are also derived in a ve...

The author's motivating interest the past few years has been the development and dissemination of G-dimensional theory (GDT). K. Toshihara, from Japan, proposed the concept of a paper defining G-Dimensional theory in relation to the Smarandache quantum paradoxes. After reviewing a draft, Dr. M. L. Perez, Editor of the SNJ, suggested the inclusion of the Smarandache (FTL) Hypothesis as well. So it is hoped that a determination of parametric relationships between the quant...
