space at the Planck scale
with the linearity of the classical objects. I agree that the naive proposal does not work but one has to give better reasons. |

space at the Planck scale
I essentially agree with the general message of this answer, but I disagree with the objection given to the naive proposal. The linear combination $c_1M_1+c_2M_2$ can trivially be taken in the vector space generated by the $M_i$'s and it is usually this kind of thing one has to do in quantum mechanics. For example, in gauge theory, we have classically bundles-with-connections and if $E_1$ and $E_2$ are two such objects then $c_1M_1+c_2M_2$ is a well-defined element in the Hilbert space of the theory. More generally, the "linearity" of quantum mechanics is something which has nothing to do .. |

The open problem of finding the explicit metric on a compact Calabi-Yau manifold
Maybe it is worth mentionning that some work has been done to approximate numerically Ricci flat metrics on compact Calabi-Yau manifolds: see for example arxiv.org/pdf/math/0512625v1.pdf and arxiv.org/pdf/hep-th/0612075.pdf The first paragraph of the second paper contains the phrase: "it is widely thought that for compact Calabi-Yau manifolds no closed form expression exists, except in trivial cases", which makes me pessimistic on the existence of a positive answer to the question. |

“Arithmetic genus” of a plane curve singularity.
@Gregor Bruns : Thanks a lot. I have corrected the formula in the answer. |
