Breaking Glass in Infinite Dimensions

Breaking Glass in Infinite Dimensions -- 30 Pages of Calculations Settle a 30-Year Debate over a Mysterious New Phase of Matter.

Quote:
... Mind-boggling as it may seem, Charbonneau said, the mathematics behind glasses and other disordered systems is actually much easier to solve by assuming that these materials exist in a hypothetical infinite-dimensional universe. In infinite dimensions, their properties can be calculated relatively easily -- much like how the properties of crystals can be calculated for our three-dimensional universe....
"relatively easily". Yea. Speak for yourself.

I have used the same premise in estimating my ability to make mistakes. It is far easier to assume infinite than fixed.
