    Steve Weinberg,

    You're a brilliant, brilliant man. But please, please, please could you make your textbooks a little less dense, so I don't need to cross check about five different sources to understand each page?

    Gravitation and Cosmology, etc? One of the most lucid books on the subject.

    It's ridiculous. Spend ages working on tiny, tiny pieces of the text, just trying to work out what the **** he just did. For example, me and a mate spent a good hour or two this afternoon trying to work out how the hell he did this:



    Still haven't worked it out. First line is fine, second line just hasn't come out at all.

    EDIT: And then a second try gets it out in fifteen minutes. Go figure.

    Looks vaguely like the behavior of (the inner product of) momentum eigenstates under a Lorentz transformation. Are you trying to establish the normalization, or something?

    Yep, exactly that. Got it out in the end. Now trying to work out what the hell he did for the massive one-particle states, specifically why SO(3) is the little/stabilizer group for those particles, which seems sensible but also seems to sort of contradict the whole point of the Wigner rotation.

    EDIT: Oh the proof is on the next page. Never mind.

    If you want some sugary crap during exercise then that's fine, but why you'd waste $5 a litre on it is beyond me. Just buy generic powdered drink mixes, same effect at 5% of the price.
