5 comments on “How physics should be done

  1. Unfortunately, in the smug world of scholarly research, this usually won’t do.

    I wrote a paper almost 20 years ago about something similar: that economists were all crowing about the results of their unit root tests, when the tests suggested that variables that couldn’t have unit roots – like unemployment rates – actually did. I, too, had the provocative title, and instead of starting my abstract with “Probably not.” I used “No!”.

    That paper was never accepted. Anywhere. It’s still in my file cabinet, and the problem is still outstanding.
