comment Can one submit/publish a paper between postdocs?
Thanks for your answer. I do use arXiv, but many postdoctoral fellowship applications ask for a list of articles published in a peer review journal only - they don't seem to care about unpublished ones.

Thank you. That's great advice.

@Mitchell Perhaps I should have phrased the question as do peer reviewed journals accept submissions from people who do not have a job to make what I wanted to know clearer :-)

comment Question about the perturbative renormalization group
@Ron Thank you, but I'm a beginner at this, and don't understand how your answer relates to my question - could you clarify what you mean?

comment Question about the perturbative renormalization group
@genneth Thank you. Any chance you could look at my other question on renormalization? - It's linked to this one, so I thought you might know the answer.

revised Do perturbative renormalization groups help one understand when perturbation theory can be used in general?

comment What does it mean for a quantum spin chain to be “low energy”?
@wsc Thank you. You say that the spin waves in equilibrium diverge.. do you mean that starting off in a spin chain that's not in equilibrium, as it settles into equilibrium, the number of spin waves diverges? If you write up your comments in an answer, I'll accept it!

comment What does it mean for a quantum spin chain to be “low energy”?
@wsc thanks, do you mean like spin waves? If the spin chain is in equilibrium, if it is low energy, does it have to mean that it's in its ground state? (Since spin waves are, according to wikipedia, propagating disturbances in magnetic materials).
