1. ## Quantum Chromodynamics Algorithms and How to Use Them?

What are the algorithms for the series, sums, and/or triple integrals for the structure of quarks and their probable location relative to one another?
2. ## Formula for Wavefront Density in Given Volume

(∫∫∫∑Wavefront Surface Areaa - ∫∫∫∑Wavefront Surface Areab ) / ∫∫∫ Volume Designated This is a simple metric for wave density of a given volume for two given wave fronts within it, which can be used as a value for mass-energy and mass-volume. As the number of separate wave fronts can be infinite within a given volume, a method for describing wave density is useful, and can also be used to distinguish between the presence of different massive particles - the changing volumes between the surface areas of wave fronts indicates both particle type and number.
3. ## Quadratic Formulas with Time?

Right that works just fine for Quadratic equations but what about an equation for two semi-circles when the radius is increasing over time? I guess I'm not sure if it would still be called a quadratic formula, but what I'm looking for is a formula that gives intersection coordinates.
4. ## Quadratic Formulas with Time?

How would one use a quadratic formula with time as a variable? For example, what the intersections between two circular functions would be when T=0 compared to T=5 if the radius of the functions increases over time? Also, is there a general equivalent of the quadratic formula for circles? I would like to basically have a simple equation that gives me the coordinates of an intersection (x, y, z) for a given value of x, y, and time. After that, the derivative of an intersecting function is going to be treated as an axis for a change in slope of the other function over time (the
5. ## Wave Interactions and Ray Deflection Instance Types Reached Through Deduction in Measurement

This is something I have been building on for about 3 years or so now, originally as a part of a proof for a solution to the Navier-Stokes Equations and Smoothness problem; to give a simple summary, deflections between ray instances in wave fronts must fall into a specific category based on ray-to-ray angle for a ray deflection instance, simply assuming 3-dimensional Euclidean space with time, and would include (and from what I understand, can only include): Front to Front Wave Deflection Instances: - Shared Linear Trajectory Infinitesimal Wave Front Section - Acute - Obtus
6. ## Can Someone Explain 'Smoothness' Concisely to Me?

I was familiar with smoothness - I just needed a more concise definition for it. As soon as I am closer to a final edit of the solution, I will post it here along with having submitted it to a peer reviewed journal of physics/mathematics.
7. ## Can Someone Explain 'Smoothness' Concisely to Me?

I'd really like to talk about my idea for the solution, but I guess this is actually something that if I think I have it, I should publish it first (and make sure the proof is kosher). That makes it hard for me to ask the questions I need to ask, but let me ask this: If a function ends abruptly, or has any sudden increases/decreases or 'sharp angles', it ceases to be smooth, correct?
8. ## Can Someone Explain 'Smoothness' Concisely to Me?

I've been working on a solution for one of the millennium prize problems (the Navier-Stokes Equations and Smoothness problem), but one of the finalizing things I need is a formal definition of 'smoothness'. The problem asks for proof which involves a smooth, divergent free vector field, a smooth function for a force, and a smooth function for pressure.
9. ## Schopolamine

This post makes it sound like scopolamine isn't dangerous, and I just wanted to make it very clear that it is, in fact, poisonous and dangerous, especially when found in scopolamine-containing plants. Safety is the most important thing; education on it shouldn't be a problem, as once educated, most people stay far, far away from it. If everyone was educated about it they would know how to avoid contact with it. I am of the opinion that plants containing it should be eradicated, except on preserved wildlands.
10. ## Spotting Pseudoscience

I agree with most points of the original post, except 5, 6, and 7. If 5 is true, then Newton, Leibniz, the ancient Greek mathematicians, early 18th century chemistry, etc., would qualify as 'pseudoscience'. As for 6, many great discoverers have worked in isolation: Newton, the photographer and pair of student biologists who discovered the structure of DNA, all the inventors throughout the 20th century who came up with something new in a shed or a garage - you can't discredit their works merely because they worked in isolation. As for 7, what is a 'law of nature'? Maybe the ori
11. ## drug-induced schizophrenia

Psychosis from psychoactive substances is in almost all cases reversible and temporary, lasting 1-2 weeks at most. Ah, now I see neuroleptic withdrawals are the cause. Yes, they are awful, and completely paradoxical - a leftover from old psychiatry when incapacitating a patient was the desired effect of medication. Although I don't think psychosis from withdrawal should last very long, there are other serious neurological disorders that often come with long-term use of neuroleptics and cessation of taking them, such as psychomotor 'tics' (involuntary muscle movements, and inability to change
12. ## Could Technology be Causing a drop in average intelligence?

Reading skills have never been better than they are right now. Everyone owning handheld devices with internet access which they are reading on primarily while using is the main reason I can think of for that. People are very educated on topics which used to otherwise be somewhat privileged information back before an internet age. To be honest, the decades when television had complete grip over the lives of everyone was when humanity was at its dumbest. As for when we were smartest, the first half of the 20th century is when problem solving skills were strongest, especially for western
13. ## Let's be honest, we don't actually know if particles exist.

You might call me crazy but I don't think electrons are particles at all; I think they are stowed kinetic potential. Leptons have always been considered slightly removed from traditionally defined particles such as a hadrons, haven't they? I suspect that electrons can form sporadically/spontaneously when an interaction occurs with high enough energy (basically, if you imagine waves of energy, forces, or what have you, interacting with matter with enough energy, it will get caught in the jumbling between the electrons already present in the matter, and residual kinetic fluctuations within
14. ## Let's be honest, we don't actually know if particles exist.

Every elementary particle discovered is later found to consist of additional constituent particles, and there has never been a way for us to determine whether or not that continues indefinitely with particles being perpetually divisible. For a particle to always consist of another tier of constituent particles at a smaller scale would be tantamount to there not being such thing as 'particles', only waves and energy -- and matter could be described more generally as an elemental material 'essence' or cloud, with indefinite form. Chemistry, as a science, accurately and consistently descr
15. ## How to Use Metric Tensors to Describe How Waves Interact with Surface Area?

I was initially thinking of the wave as an infinitely thin sphere propagating out in all directions from its center, and following the inverse square law having a diminishing intensity with distance. I was trying to figure out if perhaps the degree of curvature of the wave (being 'flatter' the further the wave propagates), proportional to the curvature of the spherical object/particle, would determine its intensity. As for the type of wave, a force-carrying wave in its simplest form (if there is such a thing), traveling at the speed of light. Or it could just be considered light, or so
