Prfs Nair, Polychronakos, and Franco

The National Science Foundation recently awarded the Theoretical High Energy Physics Group at CCNY a research grant of $744997 for three years. 

In this research project, Professors Franco, Nair, and Polychronakos will explore two fundamental concepts. The first of these is "entanglement". This refers to the surprising correlations between measurements carried out far from each other (sometimes referred to as "quantum weirdness” or "spooky action at a distance”). The second of these is the curvature of space and time, which is the source of gravitational forces according to Einstein’s theory of gravity.
