Re: Polynomial for fine structure constant and higgs boson m

I already did make a prediction. I predicted the interaction that certain particles should have with the w field. The benefit it provides is explaining how physics interacts with math at the most fundamental way. Except that it doesn't explain anything, because it's still not extensible. You've yet...

Where can I find a list of algorithms in big o notation

I was thinking about big o notation but instead of the usual process of taking an algorithm and finding what it is in big o notation how about starting with the big o notation and then finding an algorithm. For example it would be interesting if algorithms with the following big o notation existed: ...

Re: Polynomial for fine structure constant and higgs boson m

scratch123, you seem woefully misinformed as to what a theory is. In order to have a useful theory, it must make predictions (which do not simply beg the question - that is, they don't start from the answer and work backwards), and those predictions must be verifiable (that is, there must be some w...
