Unification of Yang-Mills theory and supergravity in ten dimensions
We show how to generalize the coupling of n=1 super-Maxwell theory and n=1 supergravity in 10-dimensions to the case of a non-abelian gauge group. We find that the supergravity 2-form potential a/subExpand

Cosmological effects of primordial black holes
ALTHOUGH only black holes with masses ≳; 1.5M\cirċ are expected to result from stellar evolution1 black holes with much smaller masses may be present throughout the Universe2. These smallExpand

The geometrical significance of certain Higgs potentials: An approach to grand unification
Abstract It is pointed out that the Higgs potentials in certain Yang-Mills-Higgs theories are natural, in the sense that they can be derived by dimensionally reducing pure Yang-Mills theories definedExpand

The Vacuum Energy in a Condensate Model for Spacetime
It is shown that a simple model for 4-dimensional quantum gravity based on a 3-dimensional generalization of anyon superconductivity can be regarded as a discrete form of Polyakov's string theory.Expand

Room-temperature spin coherence in ZnO
Time-resolved optical techniques are used to explore electron spin dynamics in bulk and epilayer samples of n-type ZnO as a function of temperature and magnetic field. The bulk sample yields a spinExpand

Dimensional reduction and flavor chirality
We show that phenomenologically realistic flavor-chiral Yang-Mills-Higgs theories in 4 dimensions can be derived by dimensional reduction of 10-dimensional vectorlike and gauge theories, where theExpand

Emergent magnetic moments produced by self-damage in plutonium
Plutonium possesses the most complicated phase diagram in the periodic table, driven by the complexities of overlapping 5f electron orbitals. Despite the importance of the 5f electrons in definingExpand
