B "Fine Tuning" constants

  1. Mar 20, 2017 #1
    This isn't a question about whether the universe is fine tuned or not. Which is more of a philosophical issue than a physics one. This is whether anyone on here knows of the variables involved from the following http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Constants/Table/allascii.txt in the "fine tuning" findings. If some of the "fine tunings" are ratios, could a responder perhaps mention which constants from that list are involved in calculating the ratio and what the equation is, so that people can understand what the ratio is, and how the value is arrived at.

    Furthermore it would be great if the responder knew how sensitive the constants or ratios were, and what difference it would make if they lay outside of the range (if not it doesn't matter).

    A big ask I guess, but I thought there might be an expert on here. I watched some Bernard Carr videos, but couldn't see some of the constants he mentioned on the list, and didn't know how to derive them, so thought I'd try here for some help.
