Some time ago, Zeldovich derived the following expression for the vacuum energy density: (1) or equivalently, with a link to Caianiello’s maximal acceleration formula, (2) Remark: the above vacuum energy density is related to the cosmological constant via … Continue reading

Hi, there! In this short note I am going to introduce you into a big problem from a simple integral I use to call “the cosmological integral” (it should be the cosmological energy density integral, but it is too long…). … Continue reading

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

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

I. Back to QFT in flat Spacetime. Any scalar quantum field has an action and lagrangian density: in D spacetime dimensions. The lagrangian density is usually written as follows The EOM (equation of motion) reads: A nice feynmanity! Indeed, it … Continue reading

Warm Dark Matter candidates: neutrinos, axions, extra relativistic species currently unknown. Cold Dark Matter candidates: many. Pick one (or many!): Z primes, the lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP), gravitino, gaugino, neutralino, ELKO fields, Majorana spinors, the infinite component Majorana field, unparticles, … Continue reading

Evolution of the Universe: the scale factor The Universe expands, and its expansion rate is given by the Hubble parameter (not constant in general!) Remark (I): The Hubble “parameter” is “constant” at the present value (or a given time/cosmological age), … Continue reading

In 1905, one of Einstein’s achievements was to establish the theory of Special Relativity from 2 single postulates and correctly deduce their physical consequences (some of them time later). The essence of Special Relativity, as we have seen, is that … Continue reading

In this short blog post, I am going to list some of the greatest “naturalness” problems in Physics. It has nothing to do with some delicious natural dishes I like, but there is a natural beauty and sweetness related to … Continue reading
