    are

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask why the author uses "are" in the following sentence:

    I believe this is of central relevance in explaining some effects in the distortion of physical realities I noted during my study and are recorded in several photographs in this book.


    As far as I understasnd the "are" implies they (some effects) are recorded. But is this common in English writing?

    Re: are

    It rather looks as if "that" has been missed out: "...that I noted...". It is not a particularly well-written sentence - or is it a quote from an interview?

    It's from the book written by an american researcher.

    Here is some context:

    Torsion radiation of a physical material will result only in the alteration of its spin state. However, an alteration of the spin state of the physical vacuum can result in changes to the polarization angle of a light beam. I believe this is of central relevance in explaining some effects in the distortion of physical realities I noted during my study and are recorded in several photographs in this book. (It is noteworthy that changes to a substance’s spin state also cause changes in its ability to be magnetized.)

    Re: are

    Hmm - I still feel that a word is missing!
