dr dr dr! im cia he wasnt alone uh you dont get to bring friends theyre not my friends dont worry no charge for them and why would i want them they were trying to grab your prize they work for the mercenary the masketta man bane aye get them on board ill call ittin the flight plan i just filed with the agency lists smee maimen doctor pavelheer button lee juan ovyu first one to talk gets to stay on my aircraft who paid you to grab dr pavel he didnt fly so good who wants to try next tell me about bane why does he wear the mask a lotta loyalty for a hired gun or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane at least you can talk who are you it doesnt matter who we are what matters is our plan if i pull that off will you die it would be extremely painful youre a big guy for you was getting caught part of your plan of course dr pavel refused our offer in favor of yours we had to find out what he told you nothing i said nothing well congratulations you got yourself caught sir now whats the next step of your master plan crashing this plane with no survivors no they expect one of us in the wreckage brother have we started the fire yes the fire rises calm down doctor nows not the time for fear that comes later

comment Why can't the Navier Stokes equations be derived from first principle physics?
But probably one can't properly talk without making statements susceptible to semantic criticism like that. Where's the "let's take this to the chat" button here, actually?

comment Why can't the Navier Stokes equations be derived from first principle physics?
@CuriousOne: I don't understand how the second sentence about trusting principles is an "instance" elaborating on the "elements that are used by theory" in the first sentence. I also don't quite grasp what you mean by "do physics" here, if it's something I can only do when I have trust in a meta-principle. If you advice a Bachelor student to do an experiment, is he not doing physics? He doesn't need to have faith, he can work like an automaton and report back once something doesn't work.

@CuriousOne: I'm skeptical that experiments can be first principles. An experiment is formulated with reference to a theory - for example they might be done by humans that have a notion of "particle", "mass", "location" which are theoretical physical concept which are more of less hard to define and not necessary. Maybe it works if "an experiment" is nothing than a sheet of numbers to you. As soon as you imply "this is a sheet with distances, measured in time intervals of five clock ticks", you're deep in theory land, speaking in context of a bunch of notions that people made up.

comment Why do we must initially assume that the wavefunction is complex?
@ValterMoretti: I read your answer without reading the comments and was also confused at first. "End of 1900" should be the end of the year 1900, while you mean the end of the 20'th century. I see people discuss an associated issue here.

comment Critical Dimension of Bosonic Strings and Regularization of $\sum_{n=1}^\infty n$
@smiley06: Ah, here's another factoid: The sum was exploding as $\frac{1}{(1-z)^2}$, and the finite limit emerges after subtracting $\frac{1}{\log(z)^2}$. More broadly, $$\dfrac{1}{\log(z)^n}=\dfrac{1}{(z-1)^n} \left(1+ \frac{n}{2} (z-1)+ \frac{n}{2} \frac{3n-5}{12} (z-1)^2+\frac{n}{2}\frac{(n-2)(n-3)}{24}(z-1)^3+\dots\right)$$ and use may use this to produce limits for high powers too. Above, for $n=2$, you got $-\frac{2}{2}\frac{3\cdot 2-5}{12}=-\frac{1}{12}$. Or plug in $n=1$ and you find $-\frac{1}{2}$.

comment Critical Dimension of Bosonic Strings and Regularization of $\sum_{n=1}^\infty n$
@smiley06: In that light, it's not so surprising that it pops in connection to the Riemann zeta function, which has the integral representation $\zeta(s) =\frac{1}{\Gamma(s)}\int_0^\infty\frac{x^{s}}{e^x-1}\frac{{\mathrm d}x}{x}$. And now take another look at Planck's law $B_\nu(\nu, T) = \frac{ 2 h \nu^3}{c^2} \frac{1}{e^\frac{h\nu}{k_\mathrm{B}T} - 1}$. I can go on..

comment Critical Dimension of Bosonic Strings and Regularization of $\sum_{n=1}^\infty n$
@smiley06: Or say you want to compare the difference $\Delta_h f(x)=f(x+h)-f(x)$ with it's first order approximation $f'(x)\,h$. You'll find $$\dfrac{f'(x)\,h}{\Delta_h f(x)}=1-\dfrac{f''(x)}{2!}\left(\dfrac{h}{f'(x)}\right)+\left(\dfrac{f''(x)\,f''‌​(x)}{2!\,2!}-\dfrac{f'(x)\,f'''(x)}{1!\,3!}\right)\left(\dfrac{h}{f'(x)}\right)^2‌​+{\mathcal O}(h^3).$$ Note that $\frac{1}{2!\,2!}-\frac{1}{1!\,3!}=\frac{1}{1!\,2!\,3!}(3-2)=\frac{1}{12}$! :)

@smiley06: I have a bunch of other perspectives too. It's interesting to point out that the $\frac{1}{12}$ here is "the same" as the one in Baker–Campbell–Hausdorff formula or the Todd class.

comment What is quantum mysticism?
What's an example for quantum mysticism with an associated mathematical model that however isn't experimentally testable? And what must be experimentally testable about it? The problem I have with coming up with some is that those theories which are almost trivially false don't fall in that regime, as they are experimentally testable.
