Hello Slovenia!


On a per capita basis, El Naschie Watch seems to be more popular in Slovenia than anywhere else in the world. I have no idea why that would be, but... Welcome!


Here's a post about El Naschie and Chaos, Solitons and Fractals on Kvarkadabra.

  1. How did you calculate these, Jason? You didn't go through all this manually, tell me you didn't. Anyway, welcome to our Slovenian readers!

  2. No, I didn't do a calculation. It didn't seem necessary -- I just noticed that we have as many hits from Slovenia with a population of only 2 million as from countries many times larger.

  3. A slowenian physicist, Marek-Crnjac, publishes regularly in CS&F. In one of the last issues he published a paper about the difference between number theory and numerology. Needless to say that in his opinion El Naschie is doing number theory, not numerology. I've cited the abstract of this paper in http://www.scienceblogs.de/mathlog/2008/11/radosophie.php

  4. Aha! Thank you for explaining.

  5. This paper of hers must set a record for name-dropping in a title:

    From Arthur Cayley via Felix Klein, Sophus Lie, Wilhelm Killing, Elie Cartan, Emmy Noether and superstrings to Cantorian space–time

    L. Marek-Crnjac

  6. Just for the record:

    Leila Marek-Crnjac is a high school math teacher and she obtained her PhD in the field of pedagogical mathematics (needless to say that she fulfilled the PhD criteria due to papers published in CS&F). As for her affiliation at the "Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics", she is no longer a member of that institution and even in the past was only a part time member for the obvious reason of using her credentials for applications to science projects (see her curriculum):

  7. I even heard that ms. Marek-Crnjac (unofficially) actualy confirmed that she is not the real author of "her" papers, but El Naschie publishes his own papers under her name.

  8. In Seattle we have bold, insolent raccoons, but...

    I understand Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, has a problem with bears. Wow! You guys win that round hands down :)

    Maybe you should flee the city and head for the woods.

  9. Haha, it was wandering on a hill in the surroundings of Ljubljana; there was no danger to find one in your backyard--like you can find an alligator in your swimming pool in Miami. :)

    Anyway, the bear has been put to sleep and transferred into the woods. What frightens to death in Ljubljana is boredom. :)

  10. We had a "bear problem" in Germany a few years ago. The bear turned into a "problem bear" once he found out how easy it is to get food when breaking into the chicken barns at farms etc. so he would always turn back. Quite a little drama good enough for some headlines until it was shot. Sorry to say that this guy still sleeps now :(
