The Kolmogorov complexity of a hypothesis / theory / model is the shortest computer program that simulates it, regardless of how inefficient executing that program may be in terms of memory and time. I'm interested in how complex the standard model is, by this measure.
For example, this MinutePhysics video notes that the standard model is (almost) one equation. That's pretty short (less than 50 characters), but of course in order to turn it into a computer program you also need to encode how to perform the underlying math.
On the other end of the spectrum: teaching a human physics via text books can be done with millions of characters, but the majority of that "millions" is presumably due to the constraints of communicating to a human.
I guess I expect the answer to be less than a million bytes, and maaaaaaybe less than a kilobyte, but that's not really based on much except intuition.
I searched google, and google scholar, and was surprised to fail to quickly find even a loose upper bound on the complexity of the known laws of physics. Has such an estimate been done? How difficult is it to do one? How complicated is the standard model?
