## Quotations

• John Updike
“Writing criticism is to writing fiction and poetry as hugging the shore is to sailing in the open sea.”

### In science:

The open electron resonator, described by Duncan et.al, is a mesoscopic device that has attracted considerable attention due to its remarkable behaviour (conductance oscillations), which has been explained by detailed theories based on the behaviour of electrons at the top of the Fermi sea.
Simple approach to the mesoscopic open electron resonator: Quantum current oscillations
Hence the inﬁnite open cluster is a sea, in the sense that all “islands” (i.e., the ∗-clusters of its complement) are ﬁnite.
The random geometry of equilibrium phases
The large widths of these states do indeed indicate strong coupling to the open mesonic channels, which in the quark model would be viewed as sea-quark admixtures.
Low lying $qqqq\bar q$ states in the baryon spectrum
Although our results can be rephrased in the standard Fock space language, the inﬁnite wedge product formalism, in our opinion, is closer to Dirac’s original idea [Dir34b, Dir34a] and opens up a more transparent view on the nature of the second-quantized Dirac timeevolution and on the role of the Dirac sea (i.e.

Exclusive diffractive processes thus open the possibility to obtain a threedimensional picture of how gluons and sea quarks are distributed in the proton. A recent quantitative study can be found in, and the relevance of such information for physics at LHC has been discussed in .

The nucleosynthesis rate is then proportional to the β decay rate: any beta decay of a neutron to a proton opens up a hole in the neutron sea, which then is rapidly reﬁlled.
