### Born to do Math 86 - I'm Doing Mathematical 'Well,' Thanks for Asking

Born to do Math 86 - I'm Doing Mathematical 'Well,' Thanks for Asking
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What is needed for good mathematical training?

Rick Rosner: To be a real quantum physics guy, you probably need 2 or 3 semesters undergraduate plus 3 or 4 semesters of graduate school, but I never went to graduate school. There is this thing called the Boundary Condition(s).

You have to set up a logically consistent structure. The first exercise in QM is the Potential Well. The well is this abstract well, which you have this quantum particle in. You have to set up the mathematics of the well so that it reasonably contains this mathematical simulation of a quantum particle.

I suspect the T=O conditions found at the edge of the universe, which you find somewhat in black-ish holes, exist more as boundary conditions than as necessary conditions for the matter in the universe. Rather, it is a logical requirement that this is what you find if you journeyed there, but most matter does not journey there - back to T=0 or T=10^24th of a second after the Big Bang or after time started.

There is no information there. Everything is so hot and messy. You may or may not pull information from it. Information may pass through it. But you are not going to get any actual observable information from that super early hot mess.

It is simply logically required to be assumed to be there. The end.
