all life "hobby": The Three-Body Problem!Why this site?
A 300 years old challenge!
Collecting references on the Internet, concerning the Three-Body Problem (three body)
, I have found
that most of them are not accessible free.
to buy the book, the reprint of the article
to make an online account at some of the big
university libraries, if they accept this
to request the paper from the author
to find a discussion group, expecting the
help of colleagues
to make a visit to a big foreign scientific
solutions are too expensive and practically difficult to realize (the payment method?)
realize that my problem is that of an outsider and I am not alone. They are millions of
anonymous outsiders (people working not in preferred domain of interest, people

intends to collect a part of the above defined category that interested to
work on the Three-Body Problem (three body). I
think in somewhat like the Linux team, as thought-out by Linus Torwalds. (Who write the
How believe to do
- First step, to draw a chart of the research
directions, as scopes, methods, results, unsolved sub problems and their priorities
some kind of modularization (for example a good choused set of variables make easiest the
construction of numerical method, the contemplation of the known motions suggests new
). But this need the help of some erudite people, capable to overview
this large area. (not like me).
- Second step, to complete the modules with the
corresponding references, at least as addresses.
- Third step, to realize the full accessibility
to the references, buying the books, periodicals for the team (in this case the site must
be partially password protected partially closed, as the big libraries)
- Fourth step, to organize the work on the
modules, assuring the communication support from news list, to chat, phone, etc.
long-term solution to convince the governments to support the expenses of producing the
books, periodicals and putting them in free accessible status at least in an online
form (the printed books, CD-s can remain copyright protected). This investment of the
world via the governments, after some negotiations in UNO, is a good one. The
Internet, if really share the resources between all the people of the world (the technical
support and the free access), can assure an immense salt in efficiency (reusable
code sequences). But, this is the hoped future.
the Internet with his ultrafast-ultrapowerful infrastructure can be the big
conscience of the humanity, a live system as whole.
