The Geologist and the Mathematician

In an ordinary 2-sphere, any loop can be continuously tightened to a point on the surface. Does this condition characterize the 2-sphere? The answer is yes, and it has been known for a long time. The PoincarĂ© conjecture asks the … Continue reading

Stanley Mandelstam

Research InterestsMy research concerns string theory. At present I am interested in finding an explicit expression for the n-loop superstring amplitude and proving that it is finite. My field of research is particle theory, more specifically string theory. I am … Continue reading

The Cosmic Landscape

I noticed a few blogs mentioning the landscape. Asymptotia(Clifford Johnson), The Reference Frame(Lubos Motl), and Not Even Wrong (Peter Woit’s) blog. The Cosmic Landscape:String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design by Leonard Susskind After reading Susskind’s book in regards … Continue reading

The CrossOver Point within the Perfect Fluid?

I had been following this research because of what I had been trying to understand when we take our understanding down to a certain level. That level is within the context of us probing the collision process for evidence of … Continue reading

Finiteness in String Theory Landscape

Quantum Effect, however allow a manifold to change state abruptly at some point-to tunnel through the intervening ridge to a nearby lower valley. Please take note of the underlined. Well after some thought here in terms of the landscape, it … Continue reading

IN Search of Mandelstam’s Holy Grail

There are two posts that reflect the purpose of this post today. One is Clifford’s linked through Lee Smolin’s comment and the other, at Backreaction. Good Physics is Conflict A lot of you may never understand the significance of the … 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
