Angular Momentum: an Approach to Combinatorial Space-time

  title={Angular Momentum: an Approach to Combinatorial Space-time},
  author={Roger Penrose},
I want to describe an idea which is related to other things that were suggested in the colloquium, though my approach will be quite different. The basic theme of these suggestions have been to try to get rid of the continuum and build up physical theory from discreteness. The most obvious place in which the continuum comes into physics is the structure of space-time. But, apparently independently of this, there is also another place in which the continuum is built into present physical theory… CONTINUE READING
