comment Causes of hexagonal shape of Saturn's jet stream
The full paper by Aguiar, Read, Wordsworth, Salter and Yamazaki is here: sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0019103509004382 . It looks like they did a linear stability analysis of certain solutions of the barotropic vorticity equation en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barotropic_vorticity_equation describing the flow in the atmosphere, which then motivated their experiments.

comment What happens for the spins around the phase transition
@Learningisamess I do not know of any such books. My impression is that the connection between the two is still being sorted; there are several different connections in the literature and to be honest I am not familiar enough with any of them to say anything intelligent. The 2006 Physics Reports paper of Bauer and Bernard contains a section which describes their work which I think may be the easiest to follow from a physics perspective, see also perhaps the papers of Doyon, Riva and Cardy. There are also other works by Friedrich+Werner, Kang+Makarov, Hongler+Kytola+Viklund from the math side.

comment Number theory in Physics
As far as I know, the primon gas so far has not been rigorously related to the Hilbert-Polya conjecture that you are referring to (in particular, the conjectured operators in the latter look nothing like the "hamiltonian" of the primon gas). Please correct me if I'm wrong though.

comment Scattering of phonons and electrons within solids
Your second question is really one about the Dirac delta function and Fourier transforms on a lattice. You may want to look in the appendix of whatever book you're looking at (or if you're not looking at a book yet, you may want to pick up Ashcroft and Mermin's text and start reading).
