El Naschie's name doesn't appear at all.

24. The higher-energy particles m3 to m8 are expected to produce much smaller features in the total scattering line shape, as they carry a much reduced weight and are overlapping or are very close to the lower-boundary onset of the continuum scattering (see Fig. 4E).
25. The small offset between the estimated 1D and 3D critical fields is attributed to the interchain couplings, which strengthen the magnetic order. We note that amore precise quantitative comparison with the E8 model would require extension of the theory to include how the mass ratio m2/m1 depends on the interchain wave vector q„¨, as the data in Fig. 4D were collected slightly away from the 3D Bragg peak positions; the already good agreement with the long-wavelength prediction expected to be valid near the 3D Bragg wave vector may suggest that the mass ratio dispersion is probably a small effect at the measured wave vectors.

27. The 3D magnetic ordering wave vector has a finite component in the interchain direction due to antiferromagnetic couplings between chains.
28. We thank G. Mussardo, S. T. Carr, A. M. Tsvelik, M. Greiter, and in particular F. H. L. Essler and L. Balents for very useful discussions.

The Naschie Party claim that Coldea et al. confirms El Naschie's predictions requires that those predictions be exhibited by them, because the claim is not supported in Coldea et al. The fact that the paper ostensibly detects E8 through measurement of its golden mean fingerprint isn't adequate. Armwaving "El Naschie's been talking about this for nineteen years" isn't specific enough.

  1. At Nature this week, they have the chutzpah to run a News and Views item on the Helmholtz experiments, "Solid-state physics: Golden ratio seen in a magnet", and even to illustrate it with a photo of the Great Pyramid of Giza - without mentioning the Great Man!

    It's a shame!

  2. That's something else he can sue Nature about.
