**Approximations of the ﬁne structure constant reciprocal
**

J. S. Markovitch P.O. Box 752 Batavia, IL 60510∗

(Dated: July 12, 2009)

Abstract

A “brute force” computer search was made for the most accurate approximations of the experimental ﬁne structure constant reciprocal in the form

Aa −D d Bb

+ C c − E e , where A, B, C, D,

and E were integers ranging from 0 to 30, while the exponents a, b, and c, were integers ranging from 0 to 3, and d and e were integers ranging from 0 to –3. Within these restrictions, and ignoring all trivial variants, a ﬁt better than or equal to 137.036 was achieved only twice, by

103 −10−3 33 223 −2−1 252

+ 102 − 10−3 = 137.036 and

+ 112 − 1−1 = 137.036, where the search employed a

ﬁne structure constant inverse equaling its 2006 CODATA value of 137.035999679. The comparative simplicity of the ﬁrst of these approximations, its symmetrical reuse of the constant 10, and the small size of its integers, together suggest its origin may be physical, and that the integers 10 and 3 may be important physical constants.

where the search employed a ﬁne structure constant inverse equaling its 2006 CODATA value of 137.035999679 [1]. The comparative simplicity of Eq. (1), its symmetrical reuse of the constant 10, and the small size of its integers, together suggest its origin may be physical, and that the integers 10 and 3 may be important physical constants.
