Struggles with the Continuum: Spacetime Conclusion

 We've been looking at how the continuum nature of spacetime poses problems for our favorite theories of physics --- problems with infinities.…

Struggles with the Continuum: General Relativity

 Combining electromagnetism with relativity and quantum mechanics led to QED. Last time we saw the immense struggles with the continuum this…

LHC Part 4: Searching for New Particles and Decays

 The LHC experiments are in full swing collecting data this year (more information in the forum), and a while ago the collaboration of the…

Struggles with the Continuum – Relativity and Quantum

 In this series, we're looking at mathematical problems that arise in physics due to treating spacetime as a continuum---basically, problems…
