I'm a PhD student at Queen Mary, University of London. I'm interested in modern approaches to scattering amplitudes, in particular twistor methods.

comment Analogy for the AdS/CFT Correspondence
@Andrew - just a thought about the accuracy of the analogy. Can't you tell the distance between objects by using the fact that there are two images (one on each side of the room)? To do this you'd need to know the size of the room, but this is encoded in the boundary data. This seems like a nice property of the analogy since then boundary data at separated points is encoded by passage through the bulk... It would be interesting to hear people's take on this!

comment What laws are the same in all string theory compactifications?
Agree with @MitchellPorter - this question should be left open. Fine, it's research level, but it isn't too unclear in my opinion. I may answer myself if I get a moment this afternoon!

Seconding @JohnRennie - if you show us some of your working we can help you with a specific problem. But we won't do the whole question for you!

comment The shape of a bubble?
This question contains two subquestions. The first (about spherical shape) is a duplicate as @JohnRennie suggested. The second (about the bursting) is not, as far as I can tell. user237444: I suggest you rewrite your question to focus only on the second subquestion.
