  • A theoretical mechanism is devised to determine the large distance physics of spacetime. It is a two dimensional nonlinear model, the lambda model, set to govern the string worldsurface in an attempt to remedy the failure of string theory, as it stands. The lambda model is formulated to cancel the infrared divergent effects of handles at short distance on the worldsurface. The target manifold is the manifold of background spacetimes. The coupling strength is the spacetime coupling constant. The… CONTINUE READING
