SEARCH BLOG: PHYSICIST and ECONOMIST
After watching a "watered-down" explanation of how 11 dimensions elegantly explains ... well, everything, I was curious how physicists really talk about this mind warping concept. Naturally, there was a very clear abstract:
We present a superspace formulation of N=1 eleven-dimensional supergravity with no manifest local Lorentz covariance, which we call teleparallel superspace. This formulation will be of great importance, when we deal with other supergravity theories in dimensions higher than eleven dimensions, or a possible formulation of noncommutative supergravity. As an illustrative example, we apply our teleparallel superspace formulation to the case of N=1 supergravity in twelve dimensions. We also show the advantage of teleparallel superspace as backgrounds for supermembrane action.Okay, maybe someone missed a dimension in the video I watched. But now that these physicists have determined that 12 dimensions really explain everything better than 11, there is no need for talking anymore about how things really work. No wonder everyone respects physicists and no one understands economists. I've already booked a cruise through the 7th dimension through Yahoo!
