Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Breaking Out All Over

Lisa Randall

Update (3/15/2005):

Evidently, not quite ready for primetime. You’ll have to wait a bit for Lisa’s site to go live.

Time to welcome another Harvard Physics faculty member to my blogroll. Lisa Randall’s an old friend. I’m sure she’ll have lots of interesting stuff to say.

Her first post is about the emergence of 11-dimensional M-theory from the strongly-coupled limit of Type IIA string theory. She manages to carry off a creditable explanation without ever using the phrase “threshold bound state.”

Re: Breaking Out All Over

I posted a comment last night in Lisa Randall’s blog, and now the entire thing is gone! I hope I didn’t scare her away. :-(

It’s currently 404, but I am assured that her blog will return in the not-too-distant future.
