Stringy Geometry

fancier way of saying that is that in general, it’s okay to model the space around us using the Euclidean metric. But the Euclidean model stops working when gravity becomes strong, as we’ll see later. The Euclidean model for space … Continue reading

Theoretical Excellence

Although Aristotle in general had a more empirical and experimental attitude than Plato, modern science did not come into its own until Plato’s Pythagorean confidence in the mathematical nature of the world returned with Kepler, Galileo, and Newton. For instance, … Continue reading

E8 and the Blackhole

“I’m a Platonist — a follower of Plato — who believes that one didn’t invent these sorts of things, that one discovers them. In a sense, all these mathematical facts are right there waiting to be discovered.”Donald (H. S. M.) … Continue reading

Visual Abstraction to Equations

Sylvester’s models lay hidden away for a long time, but recently the Mathematical Institute received a donation to rescue some of them. Four of these were carefully restored by Catherine Kimber of the Ashmolean Museum and now sit in an … Continue reading

Finiteness of String Theory and Mandelstam

It might be that the laws change absolutely with time; that gravity for instance varies with time and that this inverse square law has a strength which depends on how long it is since the beginning of time. In other … Continue reading

Beyond the Dance of the Sun

When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able to handle it better. In fact, you want … Continue reading

All Particles of the Standard Model and Beyond

Polchinski Elected Member Of National Academy of Sciences Polchinski’s discovery of D-branes and their properties is, according to the Academy citation, “one of the most important insights in 30 years of work on string theory.” Can I tell a little … Continue reading

Special holonomy manifolds in string theory

So what instigated my topic today and Hypercharge make sits way for me to reconsider, so while doing this the idea of geoemtries and th eway in which we see this uiverse held to the nature of it’s origination are … Continue reading
