Illusions of Grandeur?

Illusions of Gravity Three spatial dimensions are visible all around us–up/down, left/right, forward/backward. Add time to the mix, and the result is a four-dimensional blending of space and time known as spacetime. Thus, we live in a four-dimensional universe. Or … Continue reading

A Holograpical Universe

Plato likened our view of the world to that of an ancient forebear watching shadows meander across a dimly lit cave wall. He imagined our perceptions to be but a faint inkling of a far richer reality that flickers beyond … Continue reading

A Conformal Field Theory Approach?

Using the antiā€“de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence to relate fermionic quantum critical fields to a gravitational problem, we computed the spectral functions of fermions in the field theory. By increasing the fermion density away from the relativistic quantum critical point, … Continue reading

What is Happening at the Singularity?

WEll, some of the commentors like myself are not worth counting?:)Thanks for keeping it interesting Clifford of Asymptotia. I hope you won’t mind the following quotes for consideration.( it was considered spam) so I reprint it here. Quantum geometry differs … Continue reading
