Just like you can create the ilusion of superluminal motion by projecting a flashlight into a wall, some strings would be projected into tachyons. Has anyone heard or thought about that?
BenTheMan said:The theories live in different space-time dimensions.
BenTheMan said:So you want to compactify 15 of the 26 dimensions of bosonic string theory and get M theory?
MTd2 said:I'd like to see if it is possible to explain the fermions by geometric means, instead of just being a field on the worldsheet.
Bosonic strings are theoretical objects in string theory that are one-dimensional objects with no thickness, but rather exist as vibrations or excitations of energy in space-time.
M-theory is a theoretical framework in physics that attempts to unify the five different superstring theories into one overarching theory. It is a proposed theory of everything that attempts to explain the fundamental nature of our universe.
Bosonic strings are hypothesized to exist in a ten-dimensional space, and this dimensionality is described by a mathematical concept called projective spaces. This is a mathematical tool that helps to visualize and understand the properties of bosonic strings.
It is currently a topic of debate among physicists whether bosonic strings can be considered a projective space in m-theory. Some theories suggest that bosonic strings are a projection of higher-dimensional objects in m-theory, while others propose that bosonic strings exist independently as a type of projective space in m-theory.
If bosonic strings are indeed a projective space in m-theory, it could have significant implications for our understanding of the fundamental nature of our universe. It could help to bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and gravity, and provide new insights into the behavior of particles and energy at the smallest scales.
