### Matrix universality of gauge field and gravitational dynamics

- Physics
- 2008

A simple cubic matrix model is presented, which has truncations that, it is argued, lead at the classical level to a variety of theories of gauge fields and gravity. These include Chern-Simons theory…

### Aspects of Twistor Geometry and Supersymmetric Field Theories within Superstring Theory

- Mathematics
- 2006

In this thesis, we report on results in non-anticommutative field theory and twistor string theory, trying to be self-contained. We first review the construction of non-anticommutative N=4 super…

### Noncritical M-theory: Three Dimensions

- Physics
- 2004

At the macrosopic level we study candidate 3D effective field theories associated to M theory in three dimensions. These represent analogs of 11D supergravity for eleven dimensional M-theory. At the…

### Quantum reference frames and triality

- Physics
- 2020

In a background independent theory without boundary, physical observables may be defined with respect to dynamical reference systems. However, I argue here that there may be a symmetry that exchanges…

### Extending Dualities to Trialities Deepens the Foundations of Dynamics

- Mathematics
- 2015

Dualities are often supposed to be foundational, but they may come into conflict with a strong form of background independence, which is the principle that the dynamical equations of a theory not…

### Views, variety and celestial spheres

This paper describes a continuation of the program of causal views, in which the world consists of nothing but a vast number of partial views of its past. Each view is associated to an event, and is…

### The Autodidactic Universe

- Computer ScienceArXiv
- 2021

An approach to cosmology in which the Universe learns its own physical laws by exploring a landscape of possible laws by discovering maps that put each of these matrix models in correspondence with both a gauge/gravity theory and a mathematical model of a learning machine, such as a deep recurrent, cyclic neural network.
