So instead of building the correct theory of physics at the Planck scale we can regularize QFT by various mathematical tricks from noninteger dimensions to the introduction of a lattice, so that nonsensical infinite answers don't even show up.

That means we're taking a noninteger power of a negative number and the result includes imaginary numbers.
In which I show you the results of hours of procrastination.

Solving the 2nd equation gives a noninteger solution for l.
In which I show you the results of hours of procrastination.

This result holds for noninteger values of n, and hence it yields the further result that the

For noninteger [ tex] d [/ tex], the vectors are of infinite length but everything else remains the same.

Prominence is a number from 0 to 2 representing how early the person's full name appears in the body text, so that if it is right at the start then the prominence is 2, halfway through is 1 and at the end is 0, with noninteger amounts allowed in between.

While this may seem to be of limited to use to anyone but a condensed matter physicist, it provides a signature that other researchers, both experimental and theoretical, can look for to "test for the existence of fractionalized excitations" noninteger charged quasiparticles.

Version 2.0 adds Euler's Constant and the Bessel functions for both integer and noninteger orders.
