Task list and best wishes for 2017


Rather than relying on a breakthrough discovery in high energy physics in 2017 which is really difficult to envision, I am quite convinced that with what we know of the complete standard model of particle physics and what we don't know from the dark energy and dark matter phenomenological parametrisation in the cosmological concordance model there are dramatic improvement possible : in model building for grand unification of gauge coupling constants at and beyond the zeptometer and also in inflation, baryogenesis and seesaw mechanisms on the zetta-eV side. 
I think with the last progress in the spectral noncommutative geometric modelisation of spacetime, fundamental fermionic matter and bosonic gauge and scalar interaction mediators, theoretical physicists could build a pretty consistent view of the dreamed micro-macro connection epitomised by the famous Glashow snake. Another task for bold and gifted experimenters will be to imagine and then design the proper tools to probe the realm of some potential new quanta of spacetime waiting for us to be uncovered.
Best wishes for 2017 to them, to the readers of this blog and to all others!


Deux anagrammes à clef* pour commencer la nouvelle année tirées d'Anagrammes renversantes et combinés par le blogueur à la façon d'un haïku :

Et les particules élémentaires  tissèrent l'espace et la lumière 1, 
tout en faisant résonner en moi la disparition de Majorana ...3  
j'adorai la dimension à part 2.



*Parcours de découverte à la recherche des clefs ou simplement pour apprécier le chemin déjà parcouru dans la modélisation spectrale de notre espace-temps physique "à la mode" noncommutative:

That's all for this brief tapestry of an Odyssey through the building of spectral noncommutative geometry. Let's be prepared to engage sooner or later in the Iliad singing the confrontation of spectral Pati-Salam model and mimetic extension of general relativity predictions with  the phenomenological world.
