I am inclined to say that questions about "physical relevance" may be off-topic for MathOverflow. But maybe I an not correctly understanding the term. Can you clarify a bit? – Willie Wong Jan 27 '14 at 9:03
I would love to read answers to this question, and might even have things to say, but as written the question is a bit opaque. Maybe you could elaborate a bit? – Theo Johnson-Freyd Jan 28 '14 at 4:08
