UCSB Physicist Receives Funding to Study Quantum Observables


UC Santa Barbara theoretical physicist Steven Giddings has received a $100,000 two-year grant from the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi). He will study quantum observables — mathematical quantities that characterize physical properties, such as energy, spin or position — that play a central role in describing the division of a system like the universe into smaller entities.
