@RonMaimon: I'm specifically interested to know if - ontologically - Galileo's remark is valid.

@MitchellPorter: A TOE is (presumably) presupposed to include - as its primary or one of its primary ingredient(s) - a mathematical equation between some observables.

@MitchellPorter: By computable I mean presented in the usual form of current theories- as a mathematical equation or set of equations, i.e. I can get the value of an observable which is related to some other observables by some mathematical relation.

ps: My motivation for asking: Q: Is the search for a mathematically-formulated "fundamental" theory of physics (viz. a "theory of everything") ultimately a fruitful or fruitless one? (I.e. Is the book of Nature - to use Galileo's remark - actually written in the language of mathematics?)

Update: From Computational Science SE I think TCS.SE would have been more appropriate for cross-posting.

(a) I was unaware list questions are no longer on-topic for PSE; thanks for the update; (b) Given the scope of the question, thought it was applicable for both sites; and (c) the community is most welcome to discuss it's on-topicness. -cheers

Maybe make this a Community-Wiki post?
