Sabine ("Hossi") Hossenfelder this is Sabine Hossenfelder http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~hossi/Bilder/Fotos/Fotokl1.jpg she just posted this on arxiv http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0510245 Self-consistency in Theories with a Minimal Length "The aim of this paper is to clarify the relation between three different approaches of theories with a minimal length scale: A modification of the Lorentz-group in the 'Deformed Special Relativity', theories with a 'Generalized Uncertainty Principle' and those with 'Modified Dispersion Relations'. It is shown that the first two are equivalent, how they can be translated into each other, and how the third can be obtained from them. Self-consistency requires that all three features be present to adequately describe the effects of a minimal length." She was at Frankfurt, then Arizona, now Santa Barbara. PhD was in 2003, now postdoc in UCSB Physics Department. She paints mostly oil but also acrylic and other media. Nudes, landscapes, different subjects. She writes verse---some is rhythmic, formal, with rhymes, which I tend to appreciate. Some is kind of popular lyrics as one gets from singersongwriters of her (b. 1976) generation. Some has an uninhibited irrepressible spirit. One wants to be careful with that. Imagine, someone still under-30 who does not have a blog!!! her CV and published research http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~hossi/Physics/physstudies.html her research interests http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~hossi/Physics/phystop.html other photos: http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~hossi/Kontakt/conphotos.html http://www.th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~hossi/Bilder/Fotos/bett.jpg I don't know what to say. I think it is splendid that a smart enthusiastic young person at UCSB has found out about Doubly Special Relativity (DSR) and also Loop Quantum Gravity---so she is making citations to papers by Rovelli and Thiemann, Ashtekar, Lewandowski, Perez. Can't say what will come of it. Maybe she should drive over to UC Riverside and visit John Baez. It isnt all that far and its freeway all the way. My guess is Hossi drives a red Miata.
