Isaac Newton in London | Science Museum

Isaac Newton is best known for his theory of gravity and laws of motion, work he did while he was an academic professor in Cambridge. But he had a second life – as a public figure in London.

Minimal geometric deformation of Yang-Mills-Dirac stellar configurations

The method of minimal geometric deformation (MGD) is used to derive static, strongly gravitating, spherically symmetric, compact stellar distributions that are solutions of the Yang-Mills-Einstein-Dirac coupled field equations on fluid membranes...

The braneworld scenario is studied and the effective action of 3-brane living
in 5-dim. Minkowski space is constructed. This action is proved to be invariant
under spontaneously broken scale and Weyl symmetries and to encode a model of
quadratic...

Calabi-Yau Spaces in the String Landscape

Calabi-Yau spaces, or Kahler spaces admitting zero Ricci curvature, have
played a pivotal role in theoretical physics and pure mathematics for the last
half-century. In physics, they constituted the first and natural solution to
compactification of...

String theory has no parameter except the string scale $M_S$, so the Planck
scale $M_\text{Pl}$, the supersymmetry-breaking scale, the EW scale
$m_\text{EW}$ as well as the vacuum energy density (cosmological constant)
$Λ$ are to be determined...

Reading to explore the resonance of Douglass’ famous speech

A 4th of July community reading to explore the resonance of Frederick Douglass’ famous speech, reflect on the past, and what comes next.

Swampland Conjectures for Strings and Membranes

Swampland criteria like the Weak Gravity Conjecture should not only apply to
particles, but also to other lower-codimension charged objects in 4d EFTs like
strings and membranes. However, the description of the latter is in general
subtle due to...
