Wow, thanks for the update. The article made it sound like it was the discovery of the century. I admit, looking at the equations in the Wiki article made me squiggle-eyed. I'm more English and history, and while math and science fascinate me, you might as well be talking the way adults do in Charlie Brown cartoons for all the sense I can make of it.
