https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154100&ref=Feed
In 1935, Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen published a paper revealing a counter-intuitive situation in quantum mechanics which was later known as the EPR paradox. The phenomenon involved an entangled state., which Schrodinger called "not one but the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics." In textbooks, entanglement is often presented in abstract notations. In popular accounts of quantum mechanics, entanglement is sometimes portrayed as a mystery or even distorted in a nearly pseudoscientific fashion. In this worksheet, we use Maple's LinearAlgebra package to represent quantum states and measurements in matrix form. The famous Bell's inequality and teleportation can be understood using elementary matrix operations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=154100/8df7b465a1583cedab7e3e6452644591.gif" alt="Matrix Representation of Quantum Entangled States: Understanding Bell's Inequality and Teleportation" align="left"/>In 1935, Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen published a paper revealing a counter-intuitive situation in quantum mechanics which was later known as the EPR paradox.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=142318&ref=Feed
We describe in this work a five-qubit quantum convolutional error correcting code and its implementation on a classical computer. The encoding and decoding circuits and an error correction procedure are presented. We will verify that if any X, Y, Z error or any product of them occurs on one or two qubit, this correction always allows to recover the useful information or to obtain a list of possible errors. The originality in this correction is the winning time obtained by measuring only the required syndromes, thus avoiding the decoherence phenomenon. Also, we give the average fidelity for double errors recovered as single errors having same syndrome.<img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Simulation of a five qubits convolutional code" align="left"/>We describe in this work a five-qubit quantum convolutional error correcting code and its implementation on a classical computer.

<p>In many situations is necesary to calculate the density of probability to find an electron near the nucleus. In this short article we calculate such probabilities in order to avoid the calculations and simplifications behind the problem. Due to the purpose of this article I will only expose the method to get the result for the s orbitals. The calculations can be easily arranged to produce the same results for other types of orbitals such as the p or d orbitals.<br /><br /></p><img src="/view.aspx?si=95272/95272.png" alt="Density of Probability of an Electron near the Nucleus" align="left"/><p>In many situations is necesary to calculate the density of probability to find an electron near the nucleus.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4260&ref=Feed
The new ScientificConstants package in Maple 8 provides the values, symbols, uncertainty and units of over 13,000 physical constants. Never again do you have to search the internet or grab a reference book to look up such values. This extensive package gives you access to the basic chemical properties of any element or isotope from the Periodic Table. Also available are 70 physical constants, such as Planck's constant, the Newtonian constant of gravitation, magnetic flux quantum, and speed of light in a vacuum. If a specific physical constant that you need is not included, simply add the constants you commonly use to Maple's database. This flexible package also allows you to modify properties or change the system associated with a constant. The ScientificConstants package in conjunction with the comprehensive Units package introduced in Maple 7 together provide valuable tools for scientists and engineers.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4260//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="The ScientificConstants Package" align="left"/>The new ScientificConstants package in Maple 8 provides the values, symbols, uncertainty and units of over 13,000 physical constants.
