I am studying for my Bachelor thesis (in Mathematics). I and my advisor agreed on the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. My question is: 1) Which mathematical background should I focus on ...
To have a consistent superstring theory (which is to avoid the conformal anomaly on the worldsheet CFT) we are forced to build our theory on the critical dimension $n=10$. However, the Standard ...
Can somebody please let me know where I can find a reference for calculating heat kernel coefficients on a manifold with conical singularities? I am trying to compute the entanglement entropy for ...
Can anyone please explain Hawking-Penrose Singularity Theorems and geodesic incompleteness? In easy to understand plain English please.
Suppose I have two point/line singularities in spacetime (what is important to me is that they are localized). Also suppose I have some fields in spacetime and that the two singularities interact with ...
My general premise is that I want to investigate the transformations between two distinct sets of vertices on n-dimensional manifolds and then find applications to theoretical physics by: ...
