The application of Classical simplicity to present-day mathematical problems


  • Christopher Monckton of Brenchley


Christopher Monckton of Brenchley has provided us with yet an article, on the application of Classical simplicity to present-day mathematical problems. Classical mathematicians valued simplicity, settling such complex questions as the irrationality of √2 by elementary methods.

Today, too, refractory problems in pure as well as applied mathematics are resoluble by simple, Classical methods. For instance, though the Goldbach, Twin-Prime and Cousin-Prime Conjectures have withstood proof for 2-3 centuries, they are here proven by a method two
millennia old.

Likewise, a simple method shows that most lives lost in the COVID-19 could have been saved by a staged treatment protocol combining vaccines with off-label medications each proven to reduce severe outcomes somewhat.

Simple mathematics logically applied also defeat the principal arguments for mitigating global warming – the threat of dangerously rapid warming and the cost of inaction. After correction of a grave error of physics that arose in the 1980s, when feedback formulism borrowed from control theory was misunderstood, global warming will be small enough to be net beneficial.

It is proven by Classical simplicity that Western net-zero emissions would mitigate warming undetectably by 2050, at disproportionate cost. The rational economic choice is to do nothing.
