Interesting theory of everything

A very interesting and relatively simple theory of everything (including gravity) The theory should be testable with new particle colliders. E8 polytope All fields of the standard model and gravity are unifed as an E8 principal bundleconnection. A non-compact real form of the E8 Lie algebra has G2 and F4 subalgebras which break down to …

Applying metamaterial invisibility for electromagnetic wormholes

Allan Greenleaf, professor of mathematics at the University of Rochester, and his coauthors lay out the possibility of building a sort of invisible tunnel between two points in space. Invisible tunnel Current technology can create objects invisible only to microwave radiation, but the mathematical theory allows for the wormhole effect for electromagnetic waves of all …
