129-148), the author investigates the relationship between language, consciousness, and loneliness by comparing and contrasting coherence theory with the correspondence principle. Coherence theory relies on the notion that truth is dynamic and composed of internal relations, whereas the correspondence principle suggests that a proposition is only true if it corresponds to an external and observable phenomenon.
Although it does not yet prove that we are living in a hologram, the study adds to growing evidence for the validity of the correspondence principle in our own universe, and its calculations were published in the March issue of the journal "Physical Review Letters." (Cihan/Sputnik)
The proposed planar directional UWB antenna is derived from a volumetric structure to which the solid-planar correspondence principle is applied.
They cover the statistical background, the fractional kinetics of dispersive transport, transient processes in disordered semiconductor structures, fractional kinetics in quantum dots and wires, fractional relaxation in dielectrics, and the scale correspondence principle.
In physics the correspondence principle "appeared for the first time in the old quantum theory of the atom created by Niels Bohr." (9)
The correspondence principle has been defended as essential to respect for autonomy; it ensures that one is punished only for choices one has made, not for events one did not will or anticipate." It reflects basic values of classical liberalism and rejects the state's power to use individuals for public ends, even for a laudable goal like harm prevention.
For larger values of n with fixed electron energies, dc increases hence oscillations vanish showing classical behavior which is according to correspondence principle.
The connection between the two fields goes back to the correspondence principle that Niels Bohr formulated around 1920, which predicts that the behavior of a quantum system in the high-energy limit should reflect the properties of the corresponding classical dynamical system.
The rule in the history of physics seems to be that, whenever a theory replaces a predecessor, which has however itself enjoyed genuine predictive success, the "correspondence principle" applies.
