Introduction to FisherInformation 39 (2) The Higgs particle, currently unmeasured, should have a mass of no more than 207 G,eV [23]. (3) The Higgs particle has not been found, because it is equally probable to be anywhere over all of space and time. The particle has a flat PDF in space-time. Therefore it may never be detected [23]. (4) The Higgs mass effect follows completely from considerations of information exchange, and is in no way dependent upon ad hoc models such as the usual Cooper-pair one (although the latter can of course be alternatively used to derive the effect as in textbooks) [23].

Because it is an outgrowth or corollary of the knowledge game , this approach to finding b is called the game corollary. There are many applications of the game corollary in [3]. 58) of the channel capacity information indicates that I grows with N . 78) , if the value of N is not known, it should be estimated as the value that minimizes II I. For example, N = 8 is the smallest value of N that obeys the Dirac commutation rules [3] for the EPI solution for an electron. 56) this defines a four-component wave function 1/fn, n = 1-4.

(b) EPI predicts that in situ cancer grows with time as a simple power law ([3, 21] and Chapter 3) with, at first, an unknown value b of the power.
