Branched spacetime manifold

Unifying Gravity and Quantum Mechanics

A branched spacetime manifold enables a unified description of gravity and quantum mechanics.

Linked knots

Strong Force

A geometric theory of quarks results in asymptotic freedom, confinement, and gluons.

Electromagnetic field of two knots


Electroweak unification is a consequence of including knot geometry in the description of the electromagnetic field.

Physics Beyond the Event Horizon

Physics Beyond the Event Horizon

In Knot Physics, a model of quantum gravity extends our knowledge of physics beyond the event horizon.

A Model of Flow with Zero Viscosity


In Knot Physics, superfluidity results from the properties of the branched spacetime manifold.

A natural transition from quantum to classical

Schrödinger’s Cat

At the center of physics is a conundrum that has persisted since the early days of quantum mechanics.
