comment Why do the planets' orbital distances fall on an exponential curve?
By the way, I am a bit surprised that some emergent quantisation had not been tried on this topic, at least I would expect something in the crackpot or esoteric literatures. Scale-invariant systems are not rare in quantum mechanics.

comment Is there some quantum potential producing exponential eigenvalues?
Guessing... a finite set of bound states growing exponentially could approximate some potential of "tidal" kind, $V(x) \sim 1/x^2$, couldn't it?

I am still worried because I can manufacture a potential with any arbitrary finite set of bound states. There is some fine convergence magic here.

comment Can a car get better mileage driving over hills?
I am a bit surprised that a brachistochrone with friction and drag is not mentioned even as a comparative example, in any of the answers.

two towns or three towns? Is the flat road doing some curve around the hills, then?

comment How does the Kinect device work?
This question was about the first version of the device. Note that Kinect 2.0 uses tech from Microsoft, not the one of PrimeSense anymore. In fact, rumour is that now they are going to use Time-of-Flight

comment Is it possible to recover the old Bohr-Sommerfeld model from the QM description of the atom by turning off some parameters?
As you are asking by Sommerfeld model too, an interesting reading is L. C. Biedenharn ''The “Sommerfeld Puzzle” revisited and resolved''

Is it related to Feynman "checkerboard" zig-zag?

comment How does one show using QED that same/opposite electric charges repel/attract each other, respectively?
If Physics is about mathematical models, it does not damage to add the mathematical model in the answer.

comment Does an antiDeSitter space compensate the vacuum energy?
So, the answer is that it is possible to add both contributions, from AdS and from electroweak vacuum, and that this is not a new finding but standard lore?
