LOG#179. Extra dimensions: Kepler 3rd law.

Hi, everyone! Long time since the last time I wrote here. I am sorry. Life is complex and complicated…But I know you are there, dear followers. Today, Kepler motion and Kepler third law with extra dimensions! Are you prepared? Let … Continue reading

LOG#177. SCHERK, SUSY and SUGRA.

Joël Scherk (not Schrek, the ogre) was a French theoretical physicist with a tragic death. Perhaps his contributions were short, but they were important in the fields of supersymmetry (SUSY), supergravity (SUGRA) and superstrings. Moreover, he also introduced some crazy … Continue reading

LOG#173. Proton decay.

Are diamonds and other (crystalline) jewels/gemstones forever? Well, if protons are stable they are. If not, you are lost! We are all lost indeed in such a case…(However, I am sure that Superman would be fine to know the fact … Continue reading

LOG#172. Higgscelebration: 3 years of a Higgs-like boson!

In 2012, July 4th…We had the Higgsdependence day! A SM Higgs-like resonance was discovered at the LHC and was announced to the world. Today, we celebrate this discovery of the Higgs-like thing or particle almost 3 years ago. So let … Continue reading

LOG#171. From Bohrlogy to dualities.

Old (old fashioned!) Quantum Mechanics is understood as the quantum theory before its final formulation around 1927-1931…It includes the Bohr model, the Wilson-Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization and some other tricks like the one to take into account the finite nuclear size. For … Continue reading

LOG#168. D-dimensional laws(III).

The question of the origin of mass is one of the more important issues in theoretical physics. The existence (or not) of extra dimensions of space and time will likely affect to the final solution of this unsolved problem. The … Continue reading

LOG#167. D-dimensional laws(II).

Let me begin this article in D=d+1 spacetime. We are going to study quantum gases and their statistics in multidimensional space. Usual notation:     In D=d+1 spacetime, the massless free ideal relativistic gas satisfies, as we will show, certain … Continue reading

LOG#166. D-dimensional laws(I).

My next thread of nested articles are aimed to explore (shallowly, only) the issue of extra dimensions (of space and time!). Let me begin with the Gauss law for the electric field. The electrical flux in D-dimensional space reads, for … Continue reading

LOG#155. Maximal tension, Λ and quantum gravity.

Hi, folks! Before the upcoming series of thematic blog posts (they are on their way, eager readers), I found a very interesting paper to discuss. The paper is this http://arxiv.org/abs/1408.1820 and the pdf file can be found here http://arxiv.org/pdf/1408.1820v1.pdf . The author of the … Continue reading

LOG#152. Bohrlogy (II).

An interesting but relatively unknown variation of the Bohr model is to use a logarithmic potential energy. In that case, we have (1) (2) (3) Bohr quantization rules impose and that so (4) and then (5) (6) (7) The momentum … Continue reading
