DAE-HEP 2018 – Preons, Fermions and All That

The 23th DAE-BRNS High Energy Physics Symposium was held at IIT Madras from Dec 10 – Dec 14. It was an interesting event. I met lots of very smart people. My abstract based on my paper had been selected for a talk in the “Formal Theory” parallel session on Dec 11. Interestingly the talk preceding… Continue reading DAE-HEP 2018 – Preons, Fermions and All That

The Planck Scale May Be Closer Than It Appears

Objects in the rearview mirror may be closer than they seem. This statutory warning is familiar to anyone who has ever ridden in a passenger vehicle. Its intent is to warn the driver and the passengers to beĀ careful while backing up in case the car collides with something which is closer than it actually seemsĀ in… Continue reading The Planck Scale May Be Closer Than It Appears

Theoretical Physicists in India

There are many research centers and researchers in India working in hep-th (High Energy Physics, Theory), gr-qc (General Relativity/Quantum Cosmology) and quant-ph (Quantum Physics). However they are scattered all over the place and I have not been able to find a place which lists the names of places and individuals working in these fields in… Continue reading Theoretical Physicists in India
