Okay, for you I will tell.

When I tested it caused a stir. The colonel who was conducting the tests said either I was darn near a genius or I was slightly smarter than an apple. They could not figure which was true so they tested me again. This chart explains the results:

Bonzo the chimp

Bertha the chimp

Busby the chimp

Beyonce - Rihanna - Spears a tie!

Paris Hilton

combined IQ's of the US senate

Everyone tried to comfort me, do not listen to him they said, we all know you are a genius and will accomplish great things. I sure showed them!

P.S: Does this sound like bobbym?

After Minkowski translated my theory in the form of mathematics I could no longer understand my own theory.

The relationship between math and physics is tenuous at best. Feynman was actually a pretty good EM guy and one of its principles was actually first expounded by him. You should read DZ's comments about the turn mathematics took with the arrival of Cauchy, the turn it took in the 20th century.

]]>I was going to say the now defunct program to teach mathematics by osmosis. Back in the seventies a group of biophysicists all of which despised mathematics took 100 textbooks ( in mathematics of course ) and liquefied them in high speed blenders. I remember this because the company that employed me at the time made the blenders. They were really nice blenders. Anyway, they then immersed for 72 hours 100 students at the university in the gooey math liquid. 100 students that acted as the controls were given 5 dollars and sent to see The Godfather at the cinema of their choice. One week later the 200 students were given a test on the material. The students that had been immersed in the math goo scored significantly higher than the controls.

Sadly, it was later discovered that the blenders had done a poor job of liquefying the books and the pages had stuck to their exposed skin. The math goo immersed students just had to read the answers off their arms and the back of the neck of the guy in front of them.

While it is very important to know the operator precedences correct. However, in higher mathematics, nobody encounters expressions like (6*7+3^4-8)/2. Everybody usually uses brackets and fractions to make it non-confusing.

3. I do not know but after some days, it will look natural to you.

]]>I have worked out a numerical method for something I prefer not to go in to on a public forum,

I remember feeling the same way. I came up with a nice neat method to minimax an overdetermined set of equations and lo and behold I eventually discovered that Remez had done it first and even had several improvements on my idea. Not only was my work not original, it was behind the current state of the art. You might want to consult with someone to look at your work to verify originality and correctness before trying to publish.
