In a recent series of papers [1-3], we have discovered a connection between non-perturbative quantum field theory and the (noncommutative) geometry of configuration spaces. In this post, which has also been published on the noncommutative geometry blog, we would like to outline our findings in a non-technical manner intended for readers, who are familiar with…Read more The Metric Nature of Matter
Quantum or classical: which is primary?
In the following I would like to discuss this question: when we search for a fundamental theory, what relationship should there be between the quantum and the classical? Or put differently: which one is primary, the classical or the quantum? The operational arrows of quantum vs. classical Let me try to explain these questions by…Read more Quantum or classical: which is primary?
Noncommutative Geometry and the Standard Model of Particle Physics
In the following I will discuss what I consider the most fascinating and intriguing development in theoretical high-energy physics in the past some forty years, namely the research field known as noncommutative geometry. The core business of noncommutative geometry, which is pioneered by the french mathematician and field medalist Alain Connes, is is to produce…Read more Noncommutative Geometry and the Standard Model of Particle Physics
