@JohnRennie sir
Can we get in touch once

I'm sorry, but I'm being kept busy with physics questions and don't have time for anything else.

Has anyone read the Grenier Series? I'm thoroughly enjoying his writing style
:)

1:42 PM
nop
just started with studying

@RewCie still studying for IIT JEE?

2:32 PM
@NiharKarve no but I would maybe try to read a book explaining what's going on in that book in simple language for sure :p
@MoreAnonymous bits and pieces of them are great

@bolbteppa have you read his one on general relativity (seemed a bit strange from the description)
?

Hello all!
I want to ask an opinion-based question about holography, is there anyone who could give me some advice?

just ask - we can't tell you whether there is someone who can give you advice before you have actually told us what you need

Great idea
Well I'm a MSc student looking for a supervisor for my thesis, and for now I'm pretty sure that I want to explore the holographic principle. There are two teams working on that in my university and both have some interesting thesis proposals. I like all the professors in both teams, the methods used are fascinating to me, so I'm at an impasse, unable to chose
team 1 works on cosmological phase transitions for QCD-like theories, while team 2 studies complexity in quench setups
my question is, since I'm planning to apply for a doctorate next year, how much are these 2 subjects studied respectively?
(that, and pretty much whatever advice anyone can give about how to pick one of the two)

Disclaimer: Before this gets tagged "Homework-like", I'd like to clarify that I'm not just looking for the answer. I'd like to get clarifications on how exactly this object interacts with the surface during collision. Approach: Suppose the components of the velocity after collision are $v_{x}$ a...

(not trying to advertise, classical mechanics is not something that'll interest you guys anyways) I just wannt to know what can I do to make it look less like a HW question?

@MauroGiliberti I don't personally have any experience with this stuff, but if you know the rough prerequisites for each, which one are you more comfortable with?

Can anyone help me in understanding how LIGO works?

@NiharKarve What do you mean by prerequisites?

the physics topics that the research questions employ?

@satan29 does archer changed his name?

how will I know?

4:18 PM
I thought u are active in the chemistry room as well.

@NiharKarve Well this is a tricky question then because being holography problems the physics employed is dual: one "side" is in common between the two proposals, and it is pretty much solving General Relativity equations, analytically and numerically, and I love it. The other "side" is QCD for one proposal and Quantum Information for the other one, and I'm not a fan of any of them.

archer was quite active in that room. since it is been a long time.I just checked his name as "archer" but it is not available.

which room?

jee chemistry club

@MoreAnonymous He doesn't do GR in the series, the thing you're probably seeing is his own research

4:24 PM
@satan29 I was looking for him,anyway if u dk it ok.

@MauroGiliberti interesting. Sadly I have no idea what state-of-the-art work in the field looks like. I would ask you how much of those two topics you have learnt already, but I'm not sure how much that will factor into a numerical/analytical-focused project.
I must say however that if you like both the research groups and their research topics then this is a very good impasse to be at - good luck!

@NiharKarve Haha, I suppose you're right. Thank you kindly!

Why cant people explain why they are voting to close a question?

@MauroGiliberti whether you like it or not, the advent of quantum computers (even the non-universal ones), and the fact that it's a younger field than QCD, means the growth possibilities are greater with quantum information than with QCD. In particular knowledge (at least some knowledge) of quantum information will become an asset in the near future.
@satan29 'cuz most of the time this will only generate endless debates where nobody can win. Some people take downvotes or votes-to-close personally and will not react well to differing opinions. Not explaining your vote-to-close can (but need not be) be the most constructive way of voting.
not everybody can agree to disagree.

@NiharKarve Miguel Ángel Virasoro also passed away on the same day
