A "Nobel Prize in Literature" would be more appropriate for identifying the problem at the heart of "The Calculus and Quantum Mechanics"
DIVIDE BY ZERO ERROR.
"Today, zero lies at the heart of one of the biggest scientific controversies of all time, the quest for the theory of everything.
"The Babylonians invented it, the Greeks banned it, and the Church used it to fend off heretics."
Trigonometry navigates the problem with elegance and everyone seems to have forgotten.
""Leibniz's differentials still have the same forbidden 0/0 nature that plagued Newton's fluxions. As long as this flaw remains, Calculus will be based on faith rather than logic.
I have posted approximately 45 solutions to this problem using high school trigonometry and the logic of Leibniz's binary applications.
