Dear all,

I have been fascinated by the independent Lugano test and read the various comments about it with great interest. I enclose a decently written formal comment on the Lugano Report. I've put together all the previous work on this to reach what is I believe a coherent whole.

This report is interesting because unlike previous tests where there were significant aspects of the experimental methodology unreported this one has very complete data. My analysis supposes that this data is correct and follows through the calculations done by the Lugano Profs to check them.

The results are surprising: and should be required reading for anyone now seeking to replicate this test.

My work linked below follows that of Bob Higgins, referenced in the paper, correcting a small mistake Bob made and doing the (rather complex) calculations as accurately as is possible.

Substantive critical comments very welcome - criticism is the best way to strengthen any argument!

PS - for some reason Frank Acland on ECW did not wish to publish this as a user-sourced comment there. I'm hoping that this site will provide a more objective forum for discussion.

Enjoy!
