An interesting arXiv paper: "Precession optomechanics"

Hi all,

Just thought that the following paper archived at the arXiv yesterday could be of general interest to any mechanician:

Xingyu Zhang, Matthew Tomes, Tal Carmon (2011) "Precession optomechanics," arXiv:1104.4839 [^]

The fig. 1 in it makes the matter conceptually so simple that the paper can be recommended to any mechanician for his general reading, and not only to a specialist in the field.

What would you like for an undergraduate book on QM to explain to you?

 

1. Background:

A couple of things concerning books happened recently, in the last week or two.

(i) Dr. Biswajit Banerjee announced last week that a new book on metamaterials and waves in composites authored by him is coming out in print within a few months.

Journal Club Theme of February 2009: Finite Element Methods in Quantum Mechanics

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Welcome to the February 2009 issue. In this issue, we will discuss the use of finite elements (FEs) in quantum mechanics, with specific focus on the quantum-mechanical problem that arises in crystalline solids. We will consider the electronic structure theory based on the Kohn-Sham equations of density functional theory (KS-DFT): in real-space, Schrödinger and Poisson equations are solved in a parallelepiped unit cell with Bloch-periodic and periodic boundary conditions, respectively.

What is "randomness"?

Does the word "randomness" have antonym? If yes, what is it? Why? What view of randomness does that imply?
