Dear a,
Maxwell's equations are covariant and true in any co-ordinate system.

For fusion of light elements-- the nuclear liquid drop model of Bohr works
fine. The ratio 2/3 occurs from time to time because the surface energy is
proportional to area ( 2 dim) and the electric repulsion energy is proportional
to volume. There is also a small correction term due to pauli exhange forces.

Fusion breakeven is not a problem in a stable plasma. Creating a stable plasma
is very difficult--so far impossible--outside of star ( where gravity is key).
The dynamics of plasma confinement are highly complex nonlinear free boundary
problems--currently too hard.
The problem is not in the nuclear reactions but in the plasma confinement.

what percent breakeven did Teller ever give Re: Fusion poisons; whyfission has none

I have said since 1997 that it is below 100%, and Teller believes it is above
100% which you seem to agree with. I have put the mark at 67% breakeven.
I have done the theory. You and Teller have done nothing but fan optimism.

What number percentage has Teller given or is he assuming it is infinity. If
his number is say 115% breakeven then why has Teller never provided any logical

argument or theory. For either a number or infinity. Either one requires a
logical argument and theory.

Of course the above writer is not intelligent enough to comprehend that a
percentage exists or infinity and that a proof needs be given for either one.

And back into my killfile for your posts are not worth reading.
