Where God lies

June 20th, 2015 by Vader

One of the most important and fruitful branches of higher mathematics is group theory. And one of the most fruitful branches of group theory is the theory of Lie groups and the associated symmetries.

Yet another Death Ray.

July 01st, 2012 by Bookslinger

I thought we already had a death ray. But here’s another one.

Technically, it’s a “Laser-Induced Plasma Channel, or LIPC.”

Oh well. I suppose there is a strategic purpose for having more than one kind. Just as a fisherman has more than one rod-and-reel combination for going after different fish; a golfer’s choice of golf club depends on the distance to the hole and the type of terrain; and the hunter selects a rifle and ammunition combination based on the type of animal to be hunted.

I’d like to hear back from you married guys if the “a golfer needs more than one club” analogy works when your wife asks why you need another rod/reel or another gun.
