does a computer equation exists that can predict the mass of atomic and sub-atomic particles?

No. One can easily create one by fitting the measured values, but I interpret your question differently, as in "can we compute them from scratch".does a computer equation exists that can predict the atomic masses of sub-atomic particles?
As I said, it is very easy to build such an equation by fitting the data. It is trivial in the sense that it does not explain anything. What must be seen is how you obtain the equation.what does this mean if the equation is valid?
For sure, but that's just saying that we need the masses of the quarks and the QCD coupling parameter as input to the model. So it's probably fair to say that we can predict the masses of the hadrons given parameters for QCD.but there one has to fix the mass of the pion and the kaon in order to get the other masses to work =D
Yeah, one has to specify that by saying so. On what level of Ab inito one has.For sure, but that's just saying that we need the masses of the quarks and the QCD coupling parameter as input to the model. So it's probably fair to say that we can predict the masses of the hadrons given parameters for QCD.
That's indeed the masses of hadrons, and as you know, we do not have genuine calculations for the masses of fundamental particles. Basically this is the standard model and nothing beyond. It can indeed reproduce quite some stuff...Just having an equation that can reproduce or produce masses of stuff without any physics behind it does not mean anything, I would say.
oh yes I know, i just added that to the discussion for the sake of the OP :-)That's indeed the masses of hadrons, and as you know, we do not have genuine calculations for the masses of fundamental particles.

Would you mind giving the full citation for the article?gurdjieff1976 here..ok ..guys and girls...!! let me first say..i am a layman...and most of what you are saying in your replys.....goes straight over my head...!!! i'm an artist..
saying this ..please answer accordly..thanks.... here's the title of the only paper i could find..dealing with the program my father worked on for 45 years " the elementary particle masses" a simple model provides solutions fo the elementary particle masses, including the theoretical mass of the top quark...,author P.B. 1992 ...more to come..>>>> thanks
