realQM vs Hartree-Fock and DFT

I have put up an updated version of realQM (real Quantum Mechanics) to be compared with stdQM (standard QM).

stdQM is based on a linear Schrödinger equation in a $3N$ dimensional wave function with global support for an atom with $N$ electrons, which is made computable in Hartree-Fock and Density Functional Theory DFT approximations reducing the dimensionality to basically 3d.

realQM is based on a system of non-linear Schrödinger equations in $N$ 3d electron wave functions with local disjoint supports, which is computable without approximation. Evidence that realQM describes real physics is given.

Trump: End of Global Warming Alarmism

The new president of US Donald Trump expressed a clear standpoint against global warming alarmism during the presidential race:
  • The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
  • Any and all weather events are used by the GLOBAL WARMING HOAXSTERS to justify higher taxes to save our planet! They don't believe it is $\$\$\$\$$!
  • This very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bullshit has got to stop. Our planet is freezing, record low temps,and our GW scientists are stuck in ice.
  • It’s snowing & freezing in NYC. What the hell ever happened to global warming?
  • Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!
Trump says that he will end all federal clean energy development, all research on solar, wind, efficiency, batteries, clean cars, and climate science:
  • I will also cancel all wasteful climate change spending from Obama-Clinton, including all global warming payments to the United Nations. These steps will save $100 billion over 8 years, and this money will be used to help rebuild the vital infrastructure, including water systems, in America’s inner cities.
This is hopeful to the world and to science. It says that you cannot fool all the people all the time, in a democracy with free debate and science. 

This is the beginning of the end of global warming alarmism including its most aggressive form led by Sweden and Germany. The weather is now celebrating Trump's victory by heavy snow fall over Stockholm...

PS Trump picks top climate skeptic to lead EPA transition:
  • Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies.
  • Ebell’s views appear to square with Trump’s when it comes to EPA’s agenda. Trump has called global warming “bullshit” and he has said he would “cancel” the Paris global warming accord and roll back President Obama’s executive actions on climate change (ClimateWire, May 27).
Finally, reason is taking over...

Why are Scientists Openly Supporting Hillary?

Physicists and mathematicians such as Peter Woit, Leonard Susskind and Terence Tao have come out as strong supporters of Hillary in the presidential race, and then of course as strong opponents to Trump. This is unusual because scientists seldom (openly) take on political missions.

Why is that? Isn't science beyond politics? No, not in our time, and then not in particular climate science, which has become 100% politics. Climate scientists don't like Trump, because he says that climate science is 100% politics and not science. 

Is it the same thing with physics and math? Is a pure mathematician like Tao and a string theorist like Susskind fearing that a questioning non-opportunist Trump would be more difficult to deal with than an opportunist Hillary representing (scientific) establishment? What if Trump would question the value of string theory, as he did with climate science?

Weinberg: Why Quantum Mechanics Needs an Overhaul!

My new book Real Quantum Mechanics seems to fill a need: Nobel Laureate in Physics Steven Weinberg believes that quantum mechanics needs an overhaul because current debates suggest need for new approach to comprehend reality:
  • I’m not as happy about quantum mechanics as I used to be, and not as dismissive of its critics.
  • It’s a bad sign in particular that those physicists who are happy about quantum mechanics, and see nothing wrong with it, don’t agree with each other about what it means.
I hope this can motivate you to check out the new approach to quantum reality presented in the book, which addresses many of the issues raised by Weinberg.

Weinberg takes the first step to progress by admitting that quantum mechanics in its present form cannot be the answer to the physics of atoms and molecules.

Of course the witness by Weinberg is not well received by ardent believers in a quantum mechanics once and for all cut in stone by Heisenberg and Born, such as Lubos Motl.

But it may be that questioning a theory, in particular a theory supposedly being embraced by all educated, shows more brains and knowledge than simply swallowing it without any question.

PS1 I put up a comment on Lubos Reference frame, but the discussion was quickly cut by Lubos, us usual...any questioning of the dogma of Heisenberg-Bohr-Born is impossible to Lubos, but that is not in the spirit of real science and physics...

PS2 Here is my closing comment which will be censored by Lubos: It is natural to draw a parallel between Lubos defence of the establishment of QM and the defence of the Clinton establishment by Woit, Tao, Susskind et cet, (rightly questioned by Lubos) in both cases a defence with objective to close the discussion and pretend that everything is perfectly normal. Right Lobos?

PS3 Here is a link to Weinberg's talk.
