I'm currently a student of physics at the University of Heidelberg. I'm a theoretician.

I received my B.Sc. in physics from the University of Heidelberg in 2015 with an overall classification of "very good".

I am mainly interested in geometrical formulations of theories, e.g. Hamiltonian mechanics, gauge theories as theories on bundles, topological field theories, and non-perturbative phenomena in quantum field theories.

Having all the answers just means that you've been asking boring questions.

"The more we learn about the world, and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know, our knowledge of our ignorance." ~ Karl Popper

"Rigor cleans the window through which intuition shines." ~ Ellis D. Cooper

Note: My favorites list is to be viewed as a collection of posts I wanted, for some reason or another, to access again. They are not only posts I like.

@JimtheEnchanter: It's just a semantic confusion about the word map. I'm not sure it belongs conclusively to either physics or math.

@KyleKanos: We should close the other way around, this question has got far better answers, and is (now, at least) better phrased.

comment In GR, why should the spacetime manifold be differentiable?
Uh...because almost nothing in GR works if you can't differentiate? What kind of answer are you looking for?

comment Conservation Laws and Isotropic Time
The exchange of the time direction (forwards <-> backwards) is a discrete $\mathbb{Z}_2$ symmetry, so Noether's theorem does not associate a conservation law to it, see this post.
