Math Vs Social Science
This is very interesting, and Nate Silver looks like an extraordinary guy and certainly a good statistcian. (See also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nate_Silver .) Of course, we need to be cautios about this story and possible interpretations. (For example, quite a few academic statisticians are involved in polling planning and analysis and they probably are aware of graduate level statistics.) Also for role models of using mathematics in social sciences, I would still prefer the standard academic avenues of papers in professional journals etc. |

How Does Random Noise Typically Look?
I agree that this is not realistic - neither in the quantum case neither in the classic case. (At least not without much further explanation.) I only asked about the factual matter: what is the situation in the classical case. It was strange for me that I do not know the answer (and not precisely the question) for a question which was easy in the quantum case. It is still not clear to me how to do the computation for a random stochastic map and what the answer is. |

I did not fully understand the answer, but I like the thought. |

The importance of EGA and SGA for “students of today”
maybe it can be useful to say/link what are EGA et SGA |
