## 理解无限的心理差异

1.古老的乌龟和健将Achilles赛跑的故事:如果乌龟的起跑点在Achilles的起跑点前面1米,那么Achilles不管能够跑多快都永远赶不上乌龟,因为当Achilles赶到乌龟起跑点时,乌龟肯定已经爬到该点前面一段距离的位置,等Achilles再赶到该位置时,乌龟在这段时间内还是向前爬了一段距离,如此反复下去,乌龟将永远在Achilles前面.
2.为什么一个变量的微分dx既可以被看成是一个大于0的数而对它进行计算，又常常可以当成0一样被忽略？

Cosmological Parameters from Eigenmode Analysis of Sloan Digital Sky Survey Galaxy Redshifts

We present estimates of cosmological parameters from the application of the Karhunen-Loève transform to the analysis of the 3D power spectrum of density fluctuations using Sloan Digital Sky Survey galaxy redshifts. We use mh and fb = b/m to describe the shape of the power spectrum, 8gL" align="middle"> for the (linearly extrapolated) normalization, and to parametrize linear theory redshift space distortions. On scales k 0.16hMpc–1, our maximum likelihood values are mh = 0.264 ± 0.043, fb = 0.286 ± 0.065, 8gL" align="middle"> = 0.966 ± 0.048, and = 0.45 ± 0.12. When we take a prior on b from WMAP, we find mh = 0.207 ± 0.030, which is in excellent agreement with WMAP and 2dF. This indicates that we have reasonably measured the gross shape of the power spectrum but we have difficulty breaking the degeneracy between mh and fb because the baryon oscillations are not resolved in the current spectroscopic survey window function. ©2004 American Institute of Physics

Brane Inflation: From Superstring to Cosmic Strings

Brane inflation, where branes move towards each other in the brane world, has been shown to be quite natural in superstring theory. Inflation ends when branes collide and heat the universe, initiating the hot big bang. Cosmic strings (but not domain walls or monopoles) are copiously produced during the brane collision. Using the COBE data on the temperature anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background, the cosmic string tension µ is estimated to be around 10 –6 > Gµ > 10–11, while the present observational bound is 7 × 10 –7 > Gµ. This implies that the anisotropy that seeds structure formation comes mostly from inflation, but with a small component (< 10%) from cosmic string effects. This cosmic string effect should be testable in the near future via gravitational lensing, the cosmic microwave background radiation, and/or gravitational wave detectors like LIGO II/VIRGO. ©2004 American Institute of Physics
