ATLAS discovers its first new particle

String theory isn’t just another quantum field theory, another particular finite list of elementary particles with some interactions. It’s an intellectually and literally multi-dimensional reservoir of wisdom that has taught us many things of completely new kinds that we couldn’t … Continue reading

Superconductivity Dance Flash Mob

What can I say people in science seem to like to dance a lot to explain things?:) Ranging from slime molds to Alzheimer’s Disease, a new online exhibit, Emergent Universe (http://www.emergentuniverse.org) aims to encourage young people to learn about “emergence,” … Continue reading

Point Particles and String Amplitudes

For myself understanding the dimensional relationship toward the QFT perspective of particle research and development,  it has been a difficult road to understanding this relation. It is not just the idea of what transpires as we architecturally build the world\universe … Continue reading

Solidification of Geometrical Presence

While I might infer the “attributes of Coxeter here,” it is with the understanding such a dimensional perspective which has it’s counterpart in the result of what manifests as matter creations. Yet we have taken our views down to the … Continue reading

Against Symmetry

The term “symmetry” derives from the Greek words sun (meaning ‘with’ or ‘together’) and metron (‘measure’), yielding summetria, and originally indicated a relation of commensurability (such is the meaning codified in Euclid’s Elements for example). It quickly acquired a further, … Continue reading

"Lead by Physics," Faces the "Trouble With Physics"

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is a world-class scientific research facility that began operation in 2000, following 10 years of development and construction. Hundreds of physicists from around the world use RHIC to study what … Continue reading

Historical Approach of the Sand Reckoner

I should pave the way for how the thoughts that are unfolding this morning. But nothing afflicted Marcellus so much as the death of Archimedes, who was then, as fate would have it, intent upon working out some problem by … Continue reading

What’s on the Condense Matter Theorist’s Mind?

The Theory of Everything Prof. Robert B. Laughlin The crystalline state is the simplest known example of a quantum , a stable state of matter whose generic low-energy properties are determined by a higher organizing principle and nothing else. Robert … Continue reading

Numerical Relativity and Math Transference

Part of the advantage of looking at computer animations is knowing that the basis of this vision that is being created, is based on computerized methods and codes, devised, to help us see what Einstein’s equations imply. Now that’s part … Continue reading

From the Stillness Born

Can harmonic oscillators serve as a bridge between quantum mechanics and special relativity? “Daddy, is this the World,” my young son asks, as we drive through the neighborhood with which we lived. This still sits deep in my conscious mind, … Continue reading
