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

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.

comment Is Dark Energy and or Dark Matter directly proportional to EMR?
Please indicate what you mean by "proportional to radiation", and why you think it could be. Currently it is unclear where this question comes from.

comment Intro Mechanics: Finding ball speeds after collision
What do you mean "how does it know"? Are you asking why things obey the laws of physics? (That'd be essentially because the laws of physics were obtained by observing how things behave)

comment What is a single-phonon?
@NaOH: Yes! If it is normalized ($\int f(k) = 1$), then it is precisely the probability density for that.
