CMS currently uses a number of tools to transfer data which, taken together, form the basis of a heterogeneous datagrid. The range of tools used, and the directed, rather than optimized nature of CMSâ€¦ (More)

If the density matrix is treated as an objective description of individual systems, it may become possible to attribute the same objective significance to statistical mechanical properties, such asâ€¦ (More)

One of the most striking features of quantum mechanics is the profound effect exerted by measurements alone. Sophisticated quantum control is now available in several experimental systems, exposingâ€¦ (More)

Landauer erasure seems to provide a powerful link between thermodynam-ics and information processing (logical computation). The only logical operations that require a generation of heat are logicallyâ€¦ (More)

In a recent paper [Stud. Hist. Philos. Mod. Phys. 36, 355 (2005)] it is argued that to properly understand the thermodynamics of Landauer's principle it is necessary to extend the concept of logicalâ€¦ (More)

The proposal that the one-parameter solutions of the real part of the SchrÃ¶dinger equation (quantum Hamilton-Jacobi equation) can be regarded as 'quantum particle trajectories' has receivedâ€¦ (More)

An overview is presented of the characteristics of HEP computing and its mapping to the Grid paradigm. This is followed by a synopsis of the main experiences and lessons learned by HEP experiments inâ€¦ (More)

The European DataGrid (EDG) project ran from 2001 to 2004, with the aim of producing middleware which could form the basis of a production Grid, and of running a testbed to demonstrate theâ€¦ (More)

We develop the argument that the Gibbs-von Neumann entropy is the appropriate statistical mechanical generalisation of the thermodynamic entropy, for macroscopic and microscopic systems , whether inâ€¦ (More)
