.

After installing Qt, check whether its version is 5.9 or later. If so, install the Android SDK Tools by installing Android Studio.

If you use Ubuntu 18.04 or later, you can use the snap command to install Android Studio. Besides installing Android Studio, it also automatically updates Android Studio regularly.

What is the meaning of $\displaystyle{\alpha'}$?

How come $\displaystyle{\alpha' = \frac{1}{2}}$?

If we consider a rigidly rotating open string, $\alpha'$ is the proportionality constant that relates the angular momentum $J$ of the string, measured in units of $\hbar$, to the square of its energy $E$. More explicitly, $\displaystyle{ \frac{J}{\hbar} = \alpha' E^2 }$

— p.68

. $\displaystyle{ J = \frac{1}{ 2 \pi T_0 c} E^2 }$

As anticipated, the angular momentum is proportional to the square of the energy of the string. Comparing with equation (8.69) we deduce that \displaystyle{ \begin{aligned} \alpha' &= \frac{1}{2 \pi T_0 \hbar c} \\ T_0 &= \frac{1}{2 \pi \alpha' \hbar c} \end{aligned}}

These equations relate the slope parameter $\alpha'$ to the string tension $T_0$.

# The problem of induction 3.2

The meaning of induction is that

we regard, for example, that

“AAAAA –> the sixth is also A”

is more likely than

“AA –> the second is also A”

We use induction to find “patterns”. However, the induced results might not be true. Then, why do we use induction at all?

There is everything to win but nothing to lose.

— Hans Reichenbach

If the universe has some patterns, we can use induction to find those patterns.

But if the universe has no patterns at all, then we cannot use any methods, induction or else, to find any patterns.

.

However, to find patterns, besides induction, what are the other methods?

What is meaning of “pattern-finding methods other than induction”?

（問：不太敢，因為，那幾乎沒有可能。但是，我明白你的意思。現在要我做回中一的測驗卷，又真的會覺得，一定會高分，可能會滿分。）

「附加數」比「基礎數」而言，艱深非常，大部分人也覺得十分辛苦。但是，亦正正是因為「附加數艱深非常」，你才會覺得「核心數容易萬分」。

The first step to set up EQL5-Android is to install Qt. In Ubuntu, if you do not need the most updated Qt, you can just install the Qt-Creator using apt-get.

# Problem 14.5c3

Counting states in heterotic SO(32) string theory | A First Course in String Theory

.

At any mass level $\displaystyle{\alpha' M^2 = 4k}$ of the heterotic string, the spacetime bosons are obtained by “tensoring” all the left states (NS’+ and R’+) with $\displaystyle{\alpha' M_L^2 = k}$ with the right-moving NS+ states with $\displaystyle{\alpha' M_R^2 = k}$.

Similarly, the spacetime fermions are obtained by tensoring all the left states (NS’+ and R’+) with $\displaystyle{\alpha' M_L^2 = k}$ with the right-moving R- states with $\displaystyle{\alpha' M_R^2 = k}$.

c) Are there tachyonic states in heterotic string theory?

Write out the massless states of the theory (bosons and fermions) …

~~~

.

Open String: \displaystyle{ \begin{aligned} N^\perp &= \sum_{p=1}^{\infty} \alpha_{-p}^I \alpha_p^I \\ L_n^{\perp} &= \frac{1}{2} \sum_{-\infty}^{\infty} \alpha_{n-p}^I \alpha_{p}^I~~~(n \ne 0) \\ L_0^{\perp} &= \alpha' p^I p^I + N^\perp \end{aligned} }

.

Closed String: \displaystyle{ \begin{aligned} N^\perp &= \sum_{p=1}^{\infty} \alpha_{-p}^I \alpha_p^I \\ \bar N^\perp &= \sum_{p=1}^{\infty} \bar \alpha_{-p}^I \bar \alpha_p^I \\ L_0^\perp &= \frac{\alpha'}{4} p^I p^I + N^\perp \\ \bar L_0^\perp &= \frac{\alpha'}{4} p^I p^I + \bar N^\perp \end{aligned} }

We have the following well-known bosonic string mass formulae $\displaystyle{\alpha' = \frac{1}{2}}$:

open string: $\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2} M^2 = N - a}$

closed string: $\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8} M^2 = N_L - a}$ $\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8} M^2 = N_R - a}$
