SBY showed his capacities as a leader that oversee problems in macroscopic way, but he failed to show comprehension to solve the micro issues.
Maxwell equations, which are now known as the macroscopic Maxwell equations (valid in the presence of continuous polarizable matter).
By means of this concept he was able to write down modified [[Maxwell equations]], which are now known as the macroscopic Maxwell equations (valid in the presence of continuous polarizable matter).
Even more generally, one could ask whether the results of decoherence could thus be used to explain the emergence of the entire classicality of the everyday world, i.e., to explain both kinematical features such as macroscopic localisation and dynamical features such as approximately Newtonian or Brownian trajectories, whenever they happen to be phenomenologically adequate descriptions.
The associated de Broglie wavelength of a probing particle rather than the "macroscopic" wavelength defines the minimum object size that can be resolved.
"This study shows that theory developed for the 'macroscopic' world applies equally to the microscopic one," said Sam Scheiner, program director in NSF's Division of Environmental Biology, which co-funds the EID program with NSF's
Whenever you (approximately) say that the entropy is "macroscopic"
But it is a "macroscopic" conclusion that is guaranteed to be shared by quantum mechanics, too (because quantum mechanics reduces to classical physics for similar macroscopic questions).
The observer sees the group-what the researchers call a "macroscopic" qubit.
In the case of statistical physics, we want to derive "macroscopic" conclusions about a physical system that require the initial state (and therefore also the final state) to be known incompletely, and a sensible choice of the priors is important (for example, one is not allowed to assume that the initial state is conspired to lead to a special or low-energy final state).
