Welcome to my theoretical particle physics blog. This blog is based on my studies as a theoretical particle physics student. Here you will find a mixture of formal and informal articles and posts on a range of topics.

In the opening pages of volume one of Polchinski's "String Theory", we are immediately introduced to an expression for the action of a relativistic point particle.

In the last entry, we looked into a study of the nonrelativistic string and derived the appropriate equation of motion. In the process, a number of comments were directed toward the reader to pay closed attention to the end points of the string. It was not...

For pedagogical purposes, I think prefacing an engagement with Polchinski's "String Theory" with a short study of nonrelativistic strings is reasonable. Although the first pages of the book immediately engage with the action for the relativistic particle, it...

As a first entry it is worth mentioning that the following notes, which I will upload to this blog over time, are the product of my studies in string theory.

Since the time of at least ancient Greece, human beings have tried to understand the fundamental constituents of all matter in the universe. Indeed, the idea that matter is comprised of discrete units dates back to many ancient cultures. For example, the etymo...
