Calculation of Fine Structure Constants
The title of my talk may seem a bit ambitious, but please note the plural “constants”. To calculate the fine structure constant, 1/137, we would need a realistic model of just about everything, and this we do not have. In this talk I want to return to the old question of what it is that determines gauge couplings in general, and try to prepare the ground for a future realistic calculation.
