I'm at Temple University as a postdoc, studying geometry and topology. I support research for congenital muscular dystrophy (curecmd.org) and I'm a Mormon.

comment Is basic quantum mechanics mathematically as robust a theory as special relativity?
I found this paper:journals.aps.org/prd/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevD.31.1341 It has a section on uniqueness of quantum mechanics, but I don't understand the paper well enough to distill the axiomatic assumptions that are used (in particular, I do not understand what they mean by a complementary structure).

I saw the argument about special relativity as an exercise in that short relativity book everyone uses in freshman year (I think Wheeler was an author).

This is exactly what I am asking.

comment Linear dependence of magnetic potential on current density
Thank you; what I didn't understand was their use of linear. I thought Jackson was saying that the current density was equal to a matrix composed with the magnetic potential. Thanks for clearing it up!
