Thanks for the correction. I haven't read up on Holevo's theorem yet.

OTOH desktop GPU supercomputing is becoming more affordable each passing day.

comment Is it possible to work on physics independently outside academia?
Do academics really have time for a 16/24 research schedule?

Not completely orthogonal. Schrödinger, Pauli etc went that way aswell.

comment Tesla's theory of gravity
Oh, and by no means was Tesla considered a crackpot in his prime. You can find numerous praising quotes from contemporaries and long lists of awards and honors. How many crackpots get to have a SI unit named after him?

comment Tesla's theory of gravity
I agree that this sort of attitude towards Tesla is questionable. By the same standards, Einstein is a comparable 'crackpot', with his final field theory not quite living up to the famous name. But double standards seems to be the name of the game these days.
