Israeli Physicist Use The “Drunkard’s Walk” to Solve “Three Body Problem” Variations

Space

A physics problem that has plagued science since the days of Isaac Newton is closer to being solved, say a pair of Israeli researchers. The duo used “the drunkard’s walk” to calculate the outcome of a cosmic dance between three massive objects, or the so-called three-body problem. More

  1. Alcohol will not solve the geometry problem. One has to decide for themselves whether to be stacked or planer, or some combination.

  2. Hell, I’m not an astrophysicist but I solved this “Drunkard’s Walk” problem years ago. It’s quite simple really, you just need to close one eye.

  3. These are iterative computations, not a “solution.” I don’t see (we touched on these ideas in Plumbing School) how applying the “random walk” will foster a “solution” (a single mathematic expression – such as the quadratic equation).
    But, goodness knows, it’s worth a shot!
