### Langlands Program and TGD

**Authors:** M. Pitkanen

**Comments:** recovered from sciprint.org

Number theoretic Langlands program can be seen as an attempt
to unify number theory on one hand and theory of representations
of reductive Lie groups on the other hand. So called automorphic
functions to which various zeta functions are closely related define the
common denominator. Geometric Langlands program tries to achieve
a similar conceptual unification in the case of function fields. This
program has caught the interest of physicists during last years.

### Nuclear String Hypothesis

**Authors:** M. Pitkanen

**Comments:** recovered from sciprint.org

Nuclear string hypothesis is one of the most dramatic almost-predictions
of TGD. The hypothesis in its original form assumes that nucleons inside
nucleus form closed nuclear strings with neighboring nuclei of the
string connected by exotic meson bonds consisting of color magnetic
flux tube with quark and anti-quark at its ends. The lengths of flux
tubes correspond to the p-adic length scale of electron and therefore
the mass scale of the exotic mesons is around 1 MeV in accordance
with the general scale of nuclear binding energies. The long lengths
of em flux tubes increase the distance between nucleons and reduce
Coulomb repulsion. A fractally scaled up variant of ordinary QCD
with respect to p-adic length scale would be in question and the usual
wisdom about ordinary pions and other mesons as the origin of nuclear
force would be simply wrong in TGD framework as the large mass scale
of ordinary pion indeed suggests.
