Category of Networks PPT

It's interesting to find this presentation because last week as I was traveling and thinking about random things, I suddenly realized that perhaps graphs & networks are the underlying math for ways of describing our universe! We have social networks, biological systems, genealogy(family trees), entropy, lots of math objects (even knots!), brain, CFT, Feynman diagrams, … Continue reading Category of Networks PPT

Creative Ways of Communicating Research

I'm part of LYNX under the Stanford Undergraduate Research Journal this year. Here's a useful piece we received as new writers: Awesome Examples Writing Quanta Magazine (here) Nautilus (here) Asian Scientist Magazine (here) Philosophy Now (here) Podcast / Radio / Audio Radiolab (here) Cold Spring Harbor Labs Oral History Collection (here) Philosophy Bites (here) Social Science … Continue reading Creative Ways of Communicating Research

A Solution to High-Energy Quantum Gravity: AdS/CFT + Quantum Error Correcting Code = ???!

I went to a talk given by Daniel Harlow at Stanford last Thursday (2016 Oct) on Emergent Locality and Gravity & Quantum Error Correction. He started from summarizing the existing attempts to  solve the short distance quantum gravity problem including string theory and the attempt to quantize the metric as a local field. Then he … Continue reading A Solution to High-Energy Quantum Gravity: AdS/CFT + Quantum Error Correcting Code = ???!
