Stat Mech done right

Typically, we assume that macroscopic energy fluctuations can occur a little bit. This gives us uncertainty in energy, and allows us to predict the order at which events occured in time. If we introduce the concept of Quantropy into stat mech, we could get a better, more accurate path integral description. If quantropy is able […]

Abandoning Lorentz Transformations

Nima Arkani-Hamed says we should find a reformulation of QFT which removes the fabric of spacetime. This is a novel idea, as it will unambiguously allow for information to be transferred between conformal infinity and the spacetime we live in. Assume electric charge warps spacetime. But not very much. If this is true, then F=kqq/r^2 […]
