Quantity of matter


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Quantity of matter in a body, its mass, as determined by its weight, or by its momentum under a given velocity.
    • ***


  • Jules Renard

In poetry:

IF Atomes are as small, as small can bee,
They must in quantity of Matter all agree:
And if consisting Matter of the same (be right,)
Then every Atome must weigh just alike.
Thus Quantity, Quality and Weight, all Together meets in every Atome small.
"The weight of Atomes." by Margaret Cavendish

Report on GRG18, Session A3, Mathematical Studies of the Field Equations
The quantities P 0 = q0 + EN (~p) and ~P = ~q + ~p are the total energy and momentum of the DN pair in the nuclear matter rest frame, with EN (~p ) being the single-particle nucleon energy and the values (q0, ~q ) the energy and momentum of the D meson also in this frame.

Because the tests we are presenting require the use of pro jected quantities, we will focus in particular on how those artifacts affect the pro jected galaxy distribution within a redshift bin in its comparison to the pro jected matter distribution.
A step towards testing general relativity using weak gravitational lensing and redshift surveys
There have been many efforts in last two decades using various observations to distinguish between cosmological models and put constraints on some of the key cosmological quantities like matter density, curvature and dark energy.

Since only very small quantities of non-baryonic dark matter is present in disks, the dark component of collisional debris should be dark baryons.
What collisional debris can tell us about galaxies
Indeed, it is a matter of fact that when experimenters measure a physical quantity in the laboratory, on a quantum system, what they do is precisely to repeat the same experiment a large number of times, on identically prepared systems, in order to calculate probabilities as limits of relative frequencies of outcomes.

Only in models with large dark energy perturbations or modifications of Einstein gravity, the two quantities might be different, and special care about the definition of the matter power spectrum is needed.

In the 90’s, the first estimates of the matter power spectrum P (k) (or of some related quantities) on galaxy scales and cluster scales showed clearly that the HDM scenario was ruled out.
