The marriage between gravity and quantum mechanics is “complicated”. The best physicists and brightest minds have tried, but only with partial success. String/superstring theory, now M-theory, is a curious story. The another story is canonical quantum gravity, or loop quantum … Continue reading

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

Bradyons (tardyons, ittyons). Superbradyons. Elvisebrions. Erebons. Darkons. . . -bosons, -particles. -bosons, -particles. Luxons (beyond … Continue reading

Today, I return to my best friends. The polylogs! Are you ready for polylog wars? The polylogarithm can be represented by the next integral: (1) As you know, if you follow my blog, you have … Continue reading

I have the power! I have a power BETTER than the Marvel’s tesseract. It is called physmatics. Hi, there! We are back to school. This time, I am going to give you a tour with some geometrical objects, or geometricobjects, … Continue reading

In this short post, I am going to relate the relatively unknown notion of absement, the quantity with some common transforms, in particular, with Fourier series and transforms more naturally. The Fourier series for a periodic signal is … Continue reading

This post continues the Bohrlogy thread I did some time ago. It aims to parallel electric Bohr (atom), the gravitational Bohr atom and the black hole atom (as new!). Note that , and , . First of all, the common … Continue reading

In the previous post, I reviewed very naively and shallowly some of the relationships between duality and gravity, and that from electromagnetic duality. There are many other interesting points. This post is aimed to highlight some issues and works that … Continue reading

The 2nd superstring revolution circled/circles about (electromagnetic) duality. In D=4 (or general space-time), duality transformations for the electromagnetic field strength read and for the dual field 2-curvature They are true symmetry for the Maxwell equations in vacuum, , and for … Continue reading

Hi, everyone! Today is not today. Elementary particles are known to fall in two species, taking for granted the Standard Model (SM): bosons and fermions. The SM bosons are photons, gluons, W and Z bosons and the recently found Higgs … Continue reading
