Elements of physics for the 21st centuryJournal of Physics Conference Series
Given the experimental precision in condensed matter physics -- positions are measured with errors of less than 0.1pm, energies with about 0.1meV, and temperature levels are below 20mK -- it can be inferred that standard quantum mechanics, with its inherent uncertainties, is a model at the end of its natural lifetime. In this presentation I explore the elements of a future deterministic framework based on the synthesis of wave mechanics and density functional theory at the single-electron level.
