QuoteOriginally posted by: zetaN,sometimes even SU(2) is sufficient in NMR, depends what you do. As cuch has implied we don't have the luxery of saying 'here's an idea, universe conform to it' and you have to remember that math is tool for us and nothing more. I think theoreticians shouldget in the lab occasionally and try some experiments and vice versa and the hard sciences would be a much more productive industry. If our work and conjectures don't benefit mankind in some way then what's the point? Long story short, how does your conjecture benefit (say) my NMR-QC project?z,This is not a conjecture but simply well understood classical mechanics. How does your NMR-QC project benefit from good math? You'd use the correct transform/geometry rather than guessing that a Hadamard transform does something good for you (it might if you were working with quarterions). There would be *no* noise in your result -- How's that?n,BTW, what's a lab?Edit: In case you're interested, the signal you're seeing is called an L-function in math.
