LOG#223. Pi-logy.

Hi, there. Today some retarded Pi-day celebration equations (there is a longer version of this, that I wish I could publish next year). Some numbers and estimates for pi-related equations: 1st. Hawking radiation temperature (Schwarzschild’s 4d black hole case). (1) … Continue reading

LOG#215. Entanglement is the key?

Hi everyone! Is entanglement the key? A tribute to Ant-Man and Hawking today as the preamble, Quantum Chess playing for heroes like you: Entanglement is the subject we have today. Entanglement is that spooky weird feature of the quantum realm … Continue reading

LOG#208. Monsters and LISA.

Black holes and other astrophysical objects are true monsters. Some interesting tools from web pages to learn about these free catalogues: WATCHDOG and BLACKCAT. Also, the blackhole.org page and the sounds of spacetime for gravitational waves are suitable for you. … Continue reading

LOG#199. M-sigma.

Black holes are coming! No, winter is coming! NOOOO! Winter is here, and black holes, as shown by LIGO, are not coming. They are already here, as they were already supposed to exist due to X-ray astronomy. Moreover, LIGO-VIRGO, LISA, … Continue reading

LOG#194. On minimons, maximons and darkons.

If you believe in both, relativity AND quantum mechanics, something that I presume you do due to experimental support, you are driven to admit that the speed of light is the maximal velocity (at least, the maximal 1-speed, in single … Continue reading

LOG#193. Bits on black holes (II).

The second and last blog post in this thread is about the analogies between black holes and condensed matter theory, in particular with phases of matter like fluids or superconductors. That is what explains my previous picture…And this post! Are … Continue reading

LOG#192. Bits on black holes (I).

  Hi, doctorish ladies and gentlemen! I am going to teach some bits of black hole today. For the simplest static (non-rotatory) black hole, the whole space-time is fully specified by mass , and some constants, like . The critical … Continue reading

LOG#191. The hooke and the dyson.

Hello, metriplectic followers and friends! I have often written about Stoney units or Planck units in this blog. Indeed, I have a complete thread about systems of units. For Stoney and Planck units, you get some basic units of S.I. … Continue reading

LOG#188. Scales of (quantum) gravity?

Hello, world! In the paper Notes on several phenomenological laws of quantum gravity, by Jean-Philippe Bruneton, you find a very interesting discussion I am going to enlarge about the scales of (quantum) gravity. With Planck quantities:         … Continue reading

LOG#187. Hypothetical particles: the list.

Fast post! List of particles not yet confirmed or completely confirmed to exist: Preons. (“boojums” and “snarks”?) Pre-preons. Prequarks. Rishons. Subquarks. Haplons. Hexads/Hexons (and trons?). Bradyons (tardyons, ittyons). Superbradyons. Elvisebrions. Erebons. Darkons. . . -bosons, -particles. -bosons, -particles. Luxons (beyond … Continue reading
