"Quantum "Graviton" Particles May Resemble Ordinary Particles of Force"

Predicting what will emerge from a particle collision is even more daunting than predicting where a subway passenger will go. All the computers in the world working together would be unable to determine the outcome of even a fairly common collision at the LHC. If theorists cannot make precise predictions for known laws of physics and known forms of matter, what hope do we have of telling when the collider has seen something truly new? For all we know, the LHC may already have found answers to some of the greatest mysteries of nature, and we remain in the dark just because we cannot solve the equations of the Standard Model accurately enough.

In recent years the three of us and our colleagues have developed a new way of analyzing particle processes that bypasses the complexity of Feynman’s technique. Called the unitarity method, it amounts to a highly economical way of predicting what a subway passenger will do by realizing that the passenger’s options at each decision point are actually rather limited and can be broken down into probabilities for sequences of actions. Many theoretical problems in particle physics that were intractable have been cracked wide open by the new idea. Their solutions allow us to understand in unprecedented detail what our current theory of nature predicts so that we will know a new discovery when we see it. The method has also produced a wealth of results for an idealized cousin of the Standard Model that is of special interest to physicists as a stepping-stone to the ultimate theory of nature.

Joshua Fost - "Against Teleology"

19.04.12

To those who save nature for future generations,
Cut trails and parks for Sunday hikes;
To others who think of growth and economic applications,
Of medicines, and minerals, and mufflers for motorbikes:

The oceans and forests are not for anything,
The universe is not here so that.
Its silent and raucous grandeurs encompass everything,
While we sit in absorbed and smug satisfaction, indolent and fat.

The turns of the world have their own private meaning,
They have no obligation to human thought,
The swallow, the brook, the tree o’er-leaning,
Are poems the people were told—but listened not.
