As an occupation, I'm a mathematical physicist, studying string theory and quantum field theory.

I've developed as a hobby a few Cocoa (Touch) apps. The largest one so far is spires.app, which manages articles and metadata downloaded from the arXiv eprint server, the inspire database, and the journal websites.

I'm also interested in many other things, which is why I ask questions in various StackExchange sites ...

comment Uniqueness of supersymmetric heterotic string theory
And could you suggest me where it is shown that these two solutions are unique? That was my question.

Yes I'm sorry. I updated it.

Don't you need c=24k for modular invariance?

Do they satisfy the required specific "nice properties" to construct a heterotic string?

comment Does 4D N = 3 supersymmetry exist?
Has anybody read Chap. 12 of ["Harmonic Superspace" ebooks.cambridge.org/ebook.jsf?bid=CBO9780511535109], titled "N=3 super Yang-Mills theory"? I've never understood whether what they describe is N=3 or N=4

comment Why are some solitons formed from bosonic fields fermionic?
Additional comment is that even in 4d, the WZW term can make a soliton constructed from scalar fields alone fermionic; the skyrmion becoming a baryon when the number of color is odd is the typical example. In a sense the Lagrangian in this case has a term which produces long-range phase.

comment Pedagogical explanations of critical dimensions of string theories
OK, I guess I need to go back to Polchinski's bible... thanks anyways

Thanks, could you list ten different ways, so that I can learn?
