Just so you know arxiv isn't peer reviewed and is notorious for accumulating papers that are incorrect.

Physicists and mathematicians put work up there as a kind of "first!" to stake claim to results that might be easily copied. Later, *if* the paper passes peer review, it will be taken seriously by the scientific community.

For instance, the recent P!=NP proof [http://techcrunch.com/2010/08/12/fuzzy-math/] was posted on arxiv and torn to pieces before it could pass early stages of peer review.

With a less sensational paper people might not even consider it worth their time to debunk it.

So ! before you get excited about anything you read on arxiv, follow it and wait to see if it passes peer review. A lot of crackpot research gets published there, and even respected researchers can make mistakes.

Appreciated. I'll stay skeptical. I was referred to the paper via Physorg:
