@dankchristianmemer:matrix.orgdank (virgo/aquarius)what kind of physics are you guys interested in?23:57:03
@dankchristianmemer:matrix.orgdank (virgo/aquarius)there was another chat with like 900 members. what happened?23:57:22

@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S) dank (virgo/aquarius): I have broad spectrum interests in fundamental physics. More specifically mathematical formalization of fundamental theories that lack one. I think that matters which is controversial opinion to put it lightly. 00:40:20
@pwp:matrix.jeethsuresh.compwpI'm hoping it will liven up when the book club starts01:09:38
@pwp:matrix.jeethsuresh.compwpPersonally, I'm sorta interested in pretty much anything. I've got but a lowly undergrad and needed to make money after school so I work as a software engineer now. I'm basically just an armchair physicist at this point.01:11:03
@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S)pwp: Same here I'm software dev with computer science degree. I started masters degree in physics but kinda got lazy with it during the pandemic. I wasn't in the mood of attending the exams. I might finish it at some point but I don't explicitly need it at this point. I'm more interested in learning stuff.05:32:13

@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S)It's also hard when you work full time.05:33:13

I know of theories with no lagrangian description, but what does it mean to have a theory with no mathematical description? And how/why would one study it?
08:22:18
@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S) dank (virgo/aquarius): My bad I missed one word. I meant rigorous mathematical formulations. Example of such theory is everything that requires QFT. 08:34:44
@dankchristianmemer:matrix.orgdank (virgo/aquarius)so you just mean you want to make QFT rigorous 08:35:24
@dankchristianmemer:matrix.orgdank (virgo/aquarius)ok08:35:38

@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S) changed their display name from boundry to ∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S).03:36:50
@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S) changed their profile picture.03:37:34
@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S) changed their profile picture.03:39:15
@davpp:matrix.orgDavidHey everybody, sorry for the delay. You can now go and vote for a book on the website. 19:00:43
@davpp:matrix.orgDavidIf you're thinking of coming to the book club, what time zone are you in? I'm in the UK. 19:02:12
@pwp:matrix.jeethsuresh.compwpAs long as it is not 9-5 CST Monday-Friday, I can probably make it. That means since you are in the UK it would probably have to be a weekend for me to be able to attend. Don't let that prevent you guys if a week day Eu evenings works best for the majority of the server though!22:56:09

@pwp:matrix.jeethsuresh.compwpI'm also open to whenever on the weekends. If it ends up being 2 am my time, so be it.22:57:21

I'm +2 hours difference from UK.

@davpp:matrix.orgDavidJust an FYI, if we end up doing general relativity for maths graduates, I'll do my best but you might have to explain some things! XD 21:11:48

I'll definitely need to go brush up on some of the finer points of tensors again as well :) Though I probably should do that anyway.

Whatever it takes goddamnit! We're all gonna make it brahs!

@davpp:matrix.orgDavidbtw, the voting wasn't working. I had tried to stop double voting by just noting the IP when a vote is made (not perfect, but I'd notice if there were weirdly 100 votes or something). Anyway it was weirdly using the IP of the server rather than the user so thought everyone was the same (apparently a server config thing), but I've fixed it so voting works again.12:01:11

I am encouraged by your enthusiasm :)

@boundry:matrix.org∂S = cℓ(S) ∩ cℓ(X \ S)Hmm are we all voting for the same book or nobody is voting? There's no sense of competition. Come on guys you gotta pump those numbers up. Those are rookie numbers within this racket...01:11:09
