19:41 Phys.orgBeyond the black hole singularity

Our first glimpses into the physics that exist near the center of a black hole are being made possible using "loop quantum gravity"—a theory that uses quantum mechanics to extend gravitational physics beyond Einstein's theory of general relativity. Loop quantum gravity, originated at Penn State and subsequently developed by a large number of scientists worldwide, is opening up a new paradigm in modern physics. The theory has emerged as a leading candidate to analyze extreme cosmological and astrophysical phenomena in parts of the universe, like black holes, where the equations of general relativity cease to be useful.

In recent decades, it has been proven that the effectiveness of existing anti-cancer therapy strategies (for example, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy) increases if the applied therapy leads to cell death through the pathway of immunogenic cell death (ICD), which is associated with the activation of the body's anti-tumor immune response, resulting in the most complete elimination of the tumor.

Author(s): Shouryya Ray, Matthias Vojta, and Lukas Janssen At low temperatures, isotropic two-dimensional Fermi systems with quadratic band touching are unstable with respect to a symmetry-broken ground state when interactions are taken into account. Here, the authors demonstrate that in a setup with threefold symmetry only - as realized, for instance, in bilayer graphene - interactions induce a splitting of the quadratic band touching into four Dirac cones. This shifts the instability to a finite interaction strength and leads to a quantum critical point with emergent Lorentz invariance.
