> "GOTO 137.03599765"The question is: to what accuracy is 1/alpha known?
When I last studied studied this (around 1996)
there were 2 answers:
1) Good old experimental skepticism:
2) Theory-laden arrogance:
Combining the expermiental value of the electron's
g-2 (anomalous magnetic moment) and the theoretical
prediction as a perturbation expansion in alpha
one may extract
They agreed, but the theorists' sigma was ten times smaller
than the experimetalists'.
The July 2000 Particle Data Booklet now has
which is presumably exptl and indicates that we theorists
did a good job.
So a reasonable command would be GOTO 137036/10**3
(which ought to be a integer line number in Fortran :-)
> Oh Paul, I can be much more needlessly obscure than that.That is doubtless true.
However, I succeeded in being needlessly obscure anyway. No-one, yet,
has picked up on my FOCAL reference. Only truly boring old farts will
be familiar with that one. I leave you to decide whether the boring
operator is left or right associative.
Ok, this is now so badly off-topic I will refrain from meandering even
Ob primes: I forgot to mention in my response to the "what are you
playing at" questionnaire that I'm working on the Home Primes problem
and, in particular, trying to find HP(49).
