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#150. Bohr and Doctor Who: A=mc³.

The year 2013 is coming to its end…And I have a final gift for you. An impossible post! This year was the Bohr model 100th anniversary. I have talked about this subject already, here, here and here. The hydrogen spectrum is very important in Astronomy, … Continue reading

LOG#143. Basic QFT in curved ST(III).

We are now ready to go back to curved spacetime in the IN/OUT formalism! We have Indeed, where when we get particles from gravity! The particle density reads For instance, in a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric (FRW universe) we obtain where is … Continue reading

LOG#141. Basic QFT in curved ST(I).

This post begins a thread about Quantum Field Theory (QFT) in curved spacetime (ST). They are based on some of my notes about the subject. Enjoy it! I. LIMITS FROM QUANTUM MECHANICS AND GENERAL RELATIVITY. The Einstein-Hilbert action in General … Continue reading
