Spin Entanglement – A Unifying Principle for Superconductors and Molecular Bonding

Received: 20 December 2023;  Published: 03 June 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2402012

Abstract

The spin-statistics theorem is generalized to include quantum entanglement. Specifically, within the context of spin entanglement, we prove that isotropically spin-correlated (ISC) states must occur in pairs. This pairing process can be composed of parallel or anti-parallel states. Consequently, the article proposes using ISC states as a unifying princi [...]
