Unstable quantum systems are predicted to exhibit a short time deviation from the exponential decay law. This universal phenomenon has led to the prediction that frequent measurements during this nonexponential period could inhibit decay of the system, one form of the quantum Zeno effect. Subsequently, it was predicted that an enhancement of decay due to …

## Quantum Zeno Effect and the Burning Bush

What has a paradox of an old Greek to do with the burning bush that Moses saw in the desert? First let’s see in what this Zeno paradox consist of. There are two versions of the Zeno’s paradox, the “Achilles and the tortoise” and the “The dichotomy paradox”. Both describes that “all is one” and …

## The End of Time

What is Time? Time is the space of probability that gives certain events the chance to occur. In probability theory, a probability space or a probability triple is a mathematical construct that models a real-world process (or “experiment“) consisting of states that occur randomly. A probability space is constructed with a specific kind of situation …
