Understanding what SuperGravity is

In theoretical physics, supergravity is a modern field theory that combines the principles of supersymmetry and general relativity, in contrast to non-gravitational supersymmetric theories such as the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Supergravity is the gauge theory of local supersymmetry. Since the supersymmetry (SUSY) generators form together with the Poincare Algebra a Superalgebra, called the super-Poincare algebra, supersymmetry a gauge theory makes gravity arise in a … Continue reading Understanding what SuperGravity is

Understanding the Obesity Epidemic and how to treat it

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health. It is defined by body mass index (BMI) and further evaluated in terms of fat distribution via the waist-hip ratio and total cardiovascular risk factors. Obesity is generally caused by eating too much and moving too little. If you consume high … Continue reading Understanding the Obesity Epidemic and how to treat it
