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.

"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.

comment GR. Gauge fixing in 2-sphere
1. Fixing the gauge implies that $A^\mu$ is a gauge field - which gauge symmetry is it associated to? 2. $A^\mu A_\mu$ is the (squared) norm of $A$, that's not something you can choose (if $A$ is a gauge field, it's massless, so there's no degree of freedom there). 3. $\Theta$ belongs to your scalar, not to the gauge field so...why would you try to choose that as gauge? I don't get what you are trying to do here.

comment Lagrangian, geodesics and relativity
I'm not quite sure what your question really is - the energy functional you write down is precisely what we take as the action of a test particle. What exactly do you want to know about that?
