December 1

A paper Dimensionless constants, cosmology and other dark matters by Max Tegmark, Anthony Aguirre, Martin Rees & Frank Wilczek  came out today, conveniently on the day of Beyond Einstein webcast, telling where we stand now in particle physics and cosmology. Rather than to try to summarize this excellent paper, which just has to be read, I give a quote from the conclusions: “…suggesting that nature must be devised so as to make mathematical physicists happy.”
