      although ,I reported many times they apologise because of making repeat me when I was speaking with some associations whiches are the best of examples;my family's member are...too extravagant relevant this subject. my mother sometimes make the me rpeat over than 8 times and in spite of this she does not understand. these are not unique samples. we also so see some matters with educated people although it is not as same as this one.

      the thing that I know clearly ; I need & needed silent ,well temoeratured remainining conditions and healthy feeds ,but the silence is almost the most important one . then ...any of thse was not available during the last 4 years. I will leave them. I have no more time to spend with them.

      however ,I would remind these to conclude this conversation for a while ; of course our mother is our the most beloved member in our life. our family is also the best community in life.these are known but there is no contradiction in relevancy with all if you care all details.

  2. Now what? How will funding of UK science recover?

      I believe I am qualified , but I hated from someones in my lifes. unluckily I have had too much frustration and all of them relevant to economic problems. then to Raider ; the islan will not be as same as in your imagine.

      for instance there will be a giant flat on that island and have very much comfortable departments in it ,and especially it will contain high numbers of laboratory,the laboratories will be the most important.

      Headline news: Brexit crash has wiped out 3 trillions dollars, and climbing. Perhaps time for a second vote.

      This is a pretty cool bass tune by them:

      Been giving RoS a listen and it's noise. Like one commenter wrote to one of their songs: " ( can't decide if its fucking awesome or fucking shit"! Going by that bass tune I linked above they can clearly play properly. It's definitely Deaf Metal and I'm deaf!!

    4. StringJunky

      StringJunky

      I listened to a RoS track and I actually found a piece of nice music in it which lasted about 30 seconds; it was like an oasis sandwiched between two walls of noise.

      I agree that posters are not the idea way of communicating. But then they were never intended to be. Posters should be a a kind of advert along the lines of what you would tell someone your work is about when in a lift. Details are for the paper.

      Yes, visual arts are useful. Sometimes they communicate more effectively than words. I was only being hard on you. ;)

  7. Been very busy, then my wife is taken ill and is in hospital. I won't be able to participate on the forums as much as I used to for a while.

      We have a geometric framework to discuss mechanics beyond Newtonian mechanics such as that fond in various applied models.

      In a sense, but what I am talking about here is classical. You can find a preprint (which is not much different to the accepted version) at http://arxiv.org/abs/1412.2719

  10. My paper in Journal of Physics A is going to be listed as one of the 'Publisher's Pick' articles as they regards it to be of particular interest to their readers. I am very pleased.

      Destruction and creation both arise from the same potential energy, therefore evil and good are but reflections, within the field of one's own individual consciousness.

      So, give us some details already.

      But dumb 'em down for us.

    3. ajb

      ajb

      Over reacting... I just wrote a very speculative and loose comment. Basically we would expect the semiclassical limit of a 'quantum space-time' to be a smooth manifold with both a metric and a Poisson structure. I just wrote a passing comment on how to use these two together. This is already know to a few 'stringy' theorists, but maybe not widely

      known.

      Most of the things I study do have implications for physics or come from physics. But it is not always so obvious or clear.

      I wonder how strong the resonance is, between submitting to journals and submitting to instructors.

    3. ajb

      ajb

      As a student all the answers are in the book, you just need to know where to look. For papers, the answer to the key problem should not be in a book or another paper.

    4. ajb

      ajb

      Well, I submitted a version of the paper I link to in my blog (minus a couple of small typos)

  16. Just had a paper rejected... not enough motivation...oh well time to rewrite and submit to another journal.

      If you don't get rejected first go, you didn't aim for a journal with a high enough IF ;)

       

    4. ajb

      ajb

      In this case the IF was quite low, but it was a very specialist journal hoping to increase its IF. So I think they are a little fussy.

      I'll have to think about how to communicate these ideas - maybe with more simple examples. Amazingly the 7 dimensional cross product is an algebraic example of a pre-Courant algebroid

      It is not that you or the others here are thick - it is just that you don't know the ideas or the language.

       

  19. Entropy and the arrow of time - the most misunderstood aspect of statistical physics and the bain of all property landlords. Maybe I should organise some lectures on statistical phsyics, entropy and the unavoidable fact that things age aimed at landlords?

      No worries AJB.

      PastO in this context means meal, so antipasto is 'before meal'. Not pastA with an opposite charge.

      "Loo-algebroids" just begs for bad jokes.

  22. Just had a paper accepted in the Journal of Geometry and Physics. The paper was rejected by a very high ranking journal only to be almost right away accepted by JGP. Over 14 months ago we wrote the first version!

    1. Sato

      Sato

      Congrats, ajb! It's not completely clear, JGP is just as / higher ranking than the journal that rejected?

    2. ajb

      ajb

      JGP is, for some reason, not very high ranking as far as IF goes. I am not sure why as some very capable people publish in that journal. I think it could just be that it is quite specialist and so papers there do not pick up lots of citations quickly.

    3. Sato

      Sato

      Ah, alright, congratulatory for your work getting accepted to the specialist journal then!

  23. Is Wales going to win Euro 2016?
