Researchers ranked

True ranking is ranking by peers not artifically ranking by any computer method

According to Landau’s classification, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein belonged to a super league, with Newton receiving the highest rank of 0, followed by Einstein’s 0.5. The first ordinary league, a rank of 1, consists of the founding fathers of quantum mechanics, such as Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Paul Dirac and Erwin Schrödinger. Landau originally graded himself a modest 2.5, which he elevated to 2 after discovering superfluidity, for which he was awarded the physics Nobel Prize in 1962. The classification continues all the way to the rank of 5 for mundane physicists, like us. In his 1988 talk My Life with Landau: Homage of a 4 1/2 to a 2, David Mermin, who with Neil Ashcroft co-authored the legendary textbook Solid State Physics, rated himself a “struggling 4.5”.

I am “struggling 5.5” only.



Just received an email from Jon Gilham

just wanted to reach out and let you know that you link to OpenAI’s Text Classifier Tool which has been discontinued.

If you’re interested in learning more about why they discontinued, we wrote a blog post about it here:
