Main Question or Discussion Point

This could be a widely-read paper.

Quantum geometry and the Schwarzschild singularity
Abhay Ashtekar, Martin Bojowald

How many UK downloads should be expected by year-end?

under 40
40-59
60-79
80-99
100-119
120+

Here is a PF thread discussing this paper.

(the paper reports a result that has been speculated about for some time)

the reason it is UK downloads is that the UK mirror site of arXiv
counts how many people download the PDF

So if someone wants to read the A and B paper and they go to
http://uk.arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0509075
and click on PDF
then that gets counted and you can see how many did that (when the count gets updated from time to time).

But if they go to the usual arXiv site and do the same thing it is not counted.

Marcus, as soon as the implications are realized from the paper, then as soon as an academic asks the question:So what happens in a Stella Collapse, as the compacting information reaches the Blackhole Event horizon, some of the "information" will NOT transverse this horizon, so cosmological evidence should be available to this fact?

For instance again, photons streaming towards the BH will go "straight through", thus a Galactic Blackhole will radiate rigorously!..as quite alot of light will not be absorbed into the Event Horizon.

So this image for instance:http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/gr/public/gal_milky.html

really is showing a high number of photons that have passed right through the Galactic core Blackhole, and therefore due to the fact that the have passed through in every direction, and also emerge from ever direction?

Hi Spin N,
After thinking about it, I decided to go along with your prediction of 60-79 and will join you in that bracket. Too bad not to have more spread, but that is what I think the UK hits will be.

Your picture showing a galaxy's glowing central bulge is nice but I don't see how visible light could return out of a massive BH. So I probably either don't understand your discussion of the picture or would disagree that it has to do with A/B's paper.

I think what they show is growing evidence of a mathematical similarity or compatibility between LQG pictures of Hole and Bang-----so that, although there might not be a connection, there could be one (a technical possibility in the LQG picture). but if there is a connection from Hole to Bang, then it has to be an absolutely ONE-WAY bridge, as I understand it.

because time goes inwards to the Hole and outwards from the Bang. nothing could fight the flow of time and go back to his own big bang and fight his way thru the quantum bridge and come out the prior black hole---so it's like a oneway valve connection.

I checked today to see how the Ash-Bo paper is doing and found that it already has 16 hits.

this is pretty good. UK downloads are presumably just a small fraction of total downloads worldwide (at the main arxiv site and all mirror sites) and the paper only came out a few days ago----I think it posted on Monday 19 September, just one week ago today.

any new guesses as to what the count will be by 31 December?
