How dead is this forum?

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

I'm sure it'll liven up in a month or so when acceptances start coming in.

We should play some physics related game until that happens. What about twenty questions for a physics related clue? I'll start.

Nope, it's not. It's a concept, not a phenomenon. 19 questions left.

Superposition!

Though it's really a linear algebra concept, not a physical one.

Okay, so a QM concept, related to but not specifically about wave functions. I guess I should ask about it's breadth.

Is it a fundamental concept of QM?

Nope... To make things you guys should just ask multiple questions in one post.

Well considering that I said it's a physics concept and hence intangible, if you can make it larger than a bread box just call up the Nobel committee for this year and tell them to give you the prize straight.
