Kinematics Part 1: Where am I?

I claimed that my last post was not going to be foundational, and then I went an wrote about pretty much everything which lies at the foundation of classical mechanics. Now it’s time I feel to distill all that down to the bare fundamentals, without the wrapper of a falling coin that my previous post provided.

No, this August, Mars will not appear as big as the full moon in Earth's sky... Part 2!

But, alas, I can't just stop at refuting this claim by demonstrating that it's been made before. No, I have to refute it with math!

Getting Even More Entangled with Wave Functions

In my previous post, I used my latest invention, quantum playing cards, to give specific examples of entangled and non-entangled quantum systems. I recommend reading that article if you have not already done so, or reread it if it has been a while, for today I am going to expand upon that example and use it to introduce a bit of mathematical formalism, which is necessary for our ultimate goal of understanding quantum teleportation.
