An off-hand comment in my RHIC post has provided a lot more traffic and entertainment than I would've thought possible, and has also accidentally re-confirmed what we used to call "Furr's Law" back in my Usenet days-- namely, that the fastest way to get information on the Internet is to say something wrong, and let people rush to correct you. (Please note, I'm not saying I deliberately slighted string theory in order to discover RHIC resources-- I deliberately slighted string theory for the sake of a (not terribly effective) joke.)
Anyway, the responses have provided a wealth of String Theory/ RHIC links, for those inclined and able to read them:
- AdS/Au-Au I and AdS/Au-Au II and Strings 2005 Wrap-Up
- Drag Force in AdS/CFT
- Asymptotic perfect fluid dynamics as a consequence of AdS/CFT
- A Gravity Dual of RHIC Collisions
So, there you go. Additions are welcome in the comments. And don't miss your chance to vote in the extremely dorky poll (currently, the fine structure constant is running second to Planck's constant, with the speed of light right up there. And according to one commenter, this will cease to be dorky if another fifteen people vote, so hurry on over...
I appreciate that you did the right thing on this. Many others would have dug their heels in and made matters worse.
For a negativistic far left-wing activist anti-Bush anti-capitalist anti-American anti-religious pseudoscientist, I'm not a bad guy...
Indeed, aren't we all?
(just a badge of honor, though I must say you are accumulating those quite rapidally recently...)
