Is speculative mathematics dangerous? Recent interactions between physics and mathematics pose the question with some force: traditional mathematical norms discourage speculation, but it is the fabric of theoretical physics. In practice there can be benefits, but there can also be unpleasant and destructive consequences. Serious caution is required, and the issue should be considered before, rather than after, obvious damage occurs. With the hazards carefully in mind, we propose a framework that should allow a healthy and positive role for speculation.
Responsible Authorship and Peer Review
"... In this article the basic principles of responsible authorship and peer review are surveyed, with special emphasis on (a) guidelines for refereeing archival journal articles and proposals; and (b) how these guidelines should be taken into account at all stages of writing. ..."

A nonlinear dynamic system for spread spectrum code acquisition
 Master’s thesis, MIT
, 1999
"... 1.1 Nonlinear Dynamics for Computation Nonlinear differential equations and iterated maps can perform any computation. They are Turing equivalent, which means that they can solve the same computational problems as a Turing Machine in about the same amount of time [MOO99]. To make this precise, syste ..."

1.1 Nonlinear Dynamics for Computation Nonlinear differential equations and iterated maps can perform any computation. They are Turing equivalent, which means that they can solve the same computational problems as a Turing Machine in about the same amount of time [MOO99]. To make this precise, systems that are in the class called “Turing equivalent ” can solve the same computational

I offer some historical comments about the origins of Feynman’s path integral approach, as an alternative approach to standard quantum mechanics. Looking at the interaction between Einstein and Feynman, which was mediated by Feynman’s thesis supervisor John Wheeler, it is argued that, contrary to what one might expect, the significance of the interaction between Einstein and Feynman pertained to a critique of classical field theory, rather than to a direct critique of quantum mechanics itself. Nevertheless, the critical perspective on classical field theory became a motivation and point of departure for Feynman’s spacetime approach to nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. Keywords: History of quantum mechanics, Einstein, Feynman. 1
