Waves, all the way down

January 12, 2021

Sabine Hossenfelder derives the Born rule from a symmetry requirement regarding transition probabilities. Curiouser and curiouser. 

Mathematicians work hard at estimating the probabilities for rogue waves. That has importance to mariners and insurers, both.  

The day is so pretty, I doubt any wave was to blame for the capsize shown. I’ve never seen a Melges 24 do that. I did once see someone fall off one during a race. That might have been caused by a small bump in the bay. We circled back for her, but her own boat already was getting her back aboard.
