@MengCheng Ok, thank you

comment How to interpret a null critical exponent?
And is there any deeper reason for it instead of being just because the $\log$ function diverges slower than any power?

comment How the torque/moment-of-force can be mathematically defined?
Yes it is, they are not being added, they are being multiplied. Do you have any trouble multiplying distance with the inverse of time to get a speed? This is the same thing.

Well... you are not adding position and force which wouldn't make sense. You're multiplying them, which produces a new unit Newton*meter. Mathematically, they both belong to $\mathbb R^3$, so they belong to the same space and that product is perfetly well defined.

comment Why does choosing a time break covariance?
Some simple example would be greatly appreciated, I think that would trigger my understanding. Thank you for your answer by the way.

comment Why does choosing a time break covariance?
That is exactly my question, in which point of defining canonical momentum or legendre transforming the lagrangian do you fix a time? Couldn't you just define the momentum to be $\partial\mathcal L/\partial\dot\phi$, with the dot representing any parametrization of time in minkowsky space?
