Apolo 11: 50 godina kasnije

Na današnji dan, pre tačno 50 godina, tj. 16. jula 1969. godine u 9:32h po lokalnom vremenu (13:32 po Griniču), iz Kennedy Space Center-a lansirana je raketa nosač Saturn V. Na vrhu te ...

Sunčanje i/ili zdravlje? Izaberite sami!

Sunce, taj žuti disk koji svakoga dana putuje po plavom nebeskom svodu, je samo jedna od nekoliko milijardi zvezda rasutih svuda po praznom prostoru svemira. Ono je jedna sasvim obična ...

Leonardo da Vinči: Umetnik. Naučnik. Pronalazač.

Pišu: Jovana Savić i Jovana Stanimirović“Onaj ko isključivo ceni praksu bez teorije je poput moreplovca koji se ukrca na brod bez kormila i kompasa, ne znajući kuda se plovi.” - ...

Prva fotografija crne rupe!

Već nekoliko decenija, a može se reći i vekova, crne rupe privlače ogromnu pažnju kako naučnika tako i javnosti, kroz popularne tekstove, različite ideje i SF romane i (visokobudžetne) filmove.Do ...

A Capella Science – Bohemian Gravity! [17.09.2013]

Bohemian Gravity!

Copyright: A Capella Science

Današnja “Slika dana” nije slika u pravom smislu već jedan izuzetno zanimljiv, i na nauci zasnovan, spot. Interesantna obrada poznate pesme “Bohemian Rhapsody” grupe Queen. Teorija struna, kvantna gravitacija i ostali “egzotični” akteri moderne teorijske fizike su glavna tema ove pesme. Izuzetno zanimljiv spot i savršen tekst, na žalost ostaće mnogima nerazumljiv zbog neophodnog predznanja iz fizike ali to nije prepreka da poslušate ovu, sigurno, najoriginalniju obradu.

Sledi tekst pesme. Srećno! 🙂

Is string theory right?
Is it just fantasy?
Caught in the landscape,
Out of touch with reality
Compactified
On S5 or T*S3

Space is a pure void
Why should it be stringy?
Because it’s quantum not classical
Nonrenormalizable
Any way you quantize
You’ll encounter infinity
You see

Quanta
Must interact
Via paths we understand
Using Feynman diagrams
Often, they will just rebound
But now and then they go another way
A quantum
Loooooop
Infinities will make you cry
Unless you can renormalize your model
Of baryons, fermions
And all other states of matter

Curved space:
The graviton
Can be thought of as a field
But these infinities are real
In a many-body
Loop diagram
Our results diverge no matter what we do…
A Quantum Soup (any way you quantize)
Kiss your fields goodbye
Guess Einstein’s theory wasn’t complete at all!

I see extended 1-D objects with no mass
What’s their use? What’s their use? Can they give us quark plasma?
What to minimize?
What functional describes this
String?
Nambu-Goto! (Nambu-Goto)
Nambu-Goto! (Nambu-Goto)
How to quantize I don’t know
Polyakov!
I’m just a worldsheet, please minimize me
He’s just a worldsheet from a string theory
Reperametrized by a Weyl symmetry!

Fermi, Bose, open, closed, orientable?
Vibrations
Modes! They become particles (particles!)
Vibrations
They become particles (particles!)
Vibrations
They become particles (particles!)
Become particles (particles!)
Become particles (many many many many particle…)
Modes modes modes modes modes modes modes!
Oh mamma mia mamma mia,
Such a sea of particles!
A tachyon, with a dilaton and gravity-vity-VITY

(rock out!)

Now we need ten dimensions and I’ll tell you why
(anomaly cancellation!)
So to get down to 4D we compactify!
Oh, Kahler!
(Kahler manifold)
Manifolds must be Kahler!
(Complex Reimannian symplectic form)
If we wanna preserve
Any of our super-symmetry

(Superstrings of type I, IIa and IIb)
(Heterotic O and Heterotic E)
(All are one through S and T duality)
(Thank you Ed Witten for that superstring revolution and your new M-theory!)

(Maldecena!)
(Super-Yang-Mills!)
(Type IIB String!)
Dual! Dual!
(In the AdS/CFT)
(Holography!)

Molecules and atoms
Light and energy
Time and space and matter
All from one united
Theory

Any way you quantize…
