Hi, I'm a retired computer programmer (of mostly business applications). I wondered if anyone could tell me if anyone has used programming to investigate the dimensionless physical/mathematical constants in a random way. By random way I mean: write a program to randomly generate an equation --randomly selecting operators, operands, equation length, etc, and testing if the result approximates zero or another dimensionless constant. If the computer found such a hit, it could flag the equation for later review and keep on exploring. Of course the idea is that after trillions of equations it is possible a new fundamental law could be found, or at least it could provide fodder for new research. I actually did write a program like this several years ago, and got some hits, but I didn't have the physics chops to tell if I really found anything (and I left it off as a project to take up later). Certainly this is not a new idea(?) Can someone point me at people that do this type of research?
