swooshWell, I sort of disappeared there for about a week. I got lost in some really interesting physics and had a lot of fun doing it.

I kept walking away, and it kept bringing me back. There’s that fun groove one can get into that other theorists will recognise: You hit an interesting vein where you can calculate interesting results in a particular model, and you just can’t help yourself computing more and more things, as more and more questions keep popping into your head. It really is the gift that keeps on giving… The outcome is a paper that’ll appear shortly, and I’ll try to say a bit about it once it is out. For now, I’ll show you one of the many diagrams I’ve prepared for the paper, with some helpful labels removed (and other changed) to protect the innocent. It’s a rather nice swoosh! I’ll talk about its meaning in that later post. [Update: Or/And, I can point you to the paper.]

Now I’m going to step away from physics for a bit and see what’s going on in the world. (Or at least the garden…)


On this day on Asymptotia...
