Infrequent comments on maths and theoretical physics as seen from the point of view of a lecturer on a finite contract.

Last Monday and Tuesday saw the start of the Winter school on Supersymmetric Attractor Mechanism here in Frascati. I have already described a little of the content of Per Kraus' talks, but we also have had a series of talks by his frequent collaborator Finn Larsen. Larsen has given three talks under the title Introduction to Attractors with applications to Black Rings and based upon his paper with Kraus: Attractors and Black Rings. At some point there will be a video online. At least one was made, and it seems there is a certain attractor mechanism for all real world content to eventually stabalise on the internet, so it seems fair to expect it will appear one day. I'll let you know if I hear anything.

It is...wearing blood-spattered marigolds while it cradles the limp carcass of its former incarnation...rocking gently on its feet...and humming...tunelessly.
