As particle physics becomes a deeper but more difficult field, there is too much emphasis on fashionable ideas and the search for anomalies, and too little reward for improving accelerators and detectors.

Prices that libraries pay for subscriptions vary widely among journals; for physics and mathematics publications the cost per character varies by as much as a factor of 40.

When the interaction between an oscillator and its driver is strong enough, the oscillator will resonate at, or “lock” onto, an infinity of driving frequencies, giving rise to steps with a fractal dimension between 0 and 1.

Some 50 years ago, in his first research contribution, a young Japanese theoretical physicist explained the strong, short‐range force between neutrons and protons as due to an exchange of “heavy quanta.”
