Why does bosonic string theory require 26 spacetime dimensions?
Isn't the title also exceedingly uninformative? It should be obvious to mathematicians that a title "Why 26?" must refer to the number of sporadic finite simple groups. I suppose chemists might start wondering about Iron's properties or something. |

Heuristic argument that finite simple groups _ought_ to be “classifiable”?
Isn't the ultra product of the alternating groups definably simple but not simple? There is a deep result of Boris Zilber's that definable simplicity implies simplicity for groups of finite Morley rank, which suggests those simple groups might be classifiable. |

Asymptotics of the number of required Dehn relators in hyperbolic groups
I hadn't even considered finite groups, but amusingly the alternating and symmetric groups might be "the easiest example to bear in mind" for my purposes, thanks! |
