A Historical Look at Kaluza-Klein Particles?

In 1919, Kaluza sent Albert Einstein a preprint — later published in 1921 — that considered the extension of general relativity to five dimensions. He assumed that the 5-dimensional field equations were simply the higher-dimensional version of the vacuum Einstein … Continue reading

The Smoking Gun

One string theorist even went so far to conclude that a string theory calculation of Kaluza-Klein modes was the “smoking gun” that proved our theory was the same as the string theory that string theorists had already been studying.Warped Passages: … Continue reading

A Conformal Field Theory Approach?

Using the anti–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

Perspective of the Theoretical Scientist

Most people think of “seeing” and “observing” directly with their senses. But for physicists, these words refer to much more indirect measurements involving a train of theoretical logic by which we can interpret what is “seen.”– Lisa Randall There are … Continue reading

So what about the Missing Energy?

“Death, so called, is but older matter dressedIn some new form. And in a varied vest,From tenement to tenement though tossed,The soul is still the same, the figure only lost.” Poem on Pythagoras, Dryden’s Ovid. It is unfortunate to have … Continue reading
