Core dump…

For those of you that still remember the good old days of core dumps, here’s a post that follows that philosophy. :wink:

It’s been quite sometime since i last had a chance to put some content here on the blog, nor have i had time to expand on the interesting comments that have appeared and so on… time has been short lately.

In some sense, this is good news: research has really taken the best of me (as opposed to, e.g., some of the network management tasks that have plagued me in the not-so-distant-past :wink: ) — last week i gave a talk at Syracuse, and if all goes well, maybe i’ll be able to talk a bit about it here. :smile:

    Pô, fiquei realmente chateado com a notícia da morte do Wheeler…
    Mas, mudando de pato a urubu, aproveitando a “thread” da sua palestra
    em Syracuse, saca só essa notícia (tem já quase um mês, “but anyway”…):

    Higgs seen at the LHC

    Infame, mas irresistível…;-)

    Cheers,

    P.S.: Como anda o Balachandran?

    Grande Pedrão!

    Ah… a “NewsScientist” ataca novamente… :-(

    O ‘truque’ nisso tudo é uma coisa só: personal publicist (o Higgs tem um, contratado pela Edinburg University). Isso pra não falar no fato de que o bóson só é chamado de “Higgs” porque o Hagen (co-autor do artigo do Guralnik) tinha uma animosidade com o cara (cujo nome agora me fugiu) que “batizou” a partícula — coisas da história… que teve uma ajudinha duma greve de correios em Londres.

    Agora, quanto ao Balachandran… vc acredita que ele me reconheceu?!!! Eu não botei uma fé: ele abriu uma memória elefante-yoga e desceu o cacete: “eu lembro de vc assim e assado…” Foi massa! :-)

    Mas ele ma pareceu estar bem.

    Um abração, []’s!

    Memória de Ganesh… É, mas esse é o Bala… Ele deve vir a Brasília
    esses dias durante o mês de maio, pra trabalhar com o Amílcar. Eu o
    conheci em 2004, quando ele estava visitando o Teotônio. Ele me pôs
    em contato com a Sumati Surya num momento em que eu precisei de uns
    truques de atraso temporal gravitacional de geodésicas nulas para
    o meu trabalho, e ele participou em alguns seminários informais de
    uma série que eu apresentei em 2004-2005 lá no DFMA escrutinando o
    artigo do Romeo (Brunetti), do Klaus (Fredenhagen) e do Rainer (Verch)
    sobre teorias quânticas de campo localmente covariantes, que eu usei
    depois extensivamente na minha tese.

    Quanto à história do Higgs, o Wreszinski tinha me contado um
    pedaço. Disse que o Hagen teve um treco na época…

    Olá Daniel. Gostaria de pedir linkagem ao LDC, se possível. Muito obrigado! []’s!

    OMG. Have you even read the abstracts of all this stuff? Anyway, thanks for the new motivic links.

    Hi Kea,

    In fact, i always try to read the arXivs everyday, and make my personal “selections” accordingly — even if i don’t post them here that often.

    What happened in this particular case is that i ended up accumulating about 1 month of this information… hence this “core dump”. (You can check the particular date range comparing this post’s date with my last one’s.)

    As for reading the abstract… i never put something here that i haven’t personally “sanctioned”. Now, you can obviously criticize this subjective method of mine — but, there is a method. ;-)

    Personally, i offer this to help ease your thoughts (if it helps at all): once you realize how different topics are connected and form the picture of current research in Physics (and Math), it becomes a bit easier to put things in context and understand what are the starting points and what is being sought as a result. Besides, having lunch (and the following coffee time ;-) ) with some of the faculty from the Physics and Math Depts really helps. :-)

    Cheers.
