Not Physics

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Some years ago, in a discussion about physics (in India, but it could be generalised easily) I described the work of some physicists as “they check the consistency of conjectured properties of non-existent objects.” I was talking about some very well-known physicists working in string theory and related fields.

This paper is somehow worse, as the authors turn a non-existent non-object (a cutoff) into something physical, and then use what appears to be very poor logic to claim results out of this.

For more discussion, see here or here.
