- n. Plural form of braneworld.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I am not particularly concerned about attribution, that tongue-in cheek comment about braneworlds was in response to your “trumpeting” comment … However I should say that even is string theory the higher dimensional perspective is not always the most useful one.
If you have spare 45 minutes and you haven't yet watched the 2002 program about the braneworlds (and related issues of string theory) called "Parallel Universes" by BBC
This was very welcome indeed (Tip: Don’t stay up to 4: 00am talking about braneworlds and extra dimensions if you’ve got to get up three hours later).
