Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Theoretical Physics – Stack Exchange

Posted by Urs Schreiber

Since yesterday the site

Theoretical Physics – Stack Exchange

is in what is called public beta phase after building up speed in a private beta phase for about a month. This is about having questions and answers at research level in theoretical physics.

So far it has been working out all right. Which is not trivial, given the otherwise very low ratio of decent research-level theoretical physics discussion on the web compared to the impressive amount of decent research-level mathematics discussion on the web.

I had written:

And indeed, this attempt has now failed, too, unfortunately. They are closing it down.
