In science:

Direct simulations of the c-quark are doable, but some care has to be taken to control the discretization errors . 2This extrapolation can be replaced by a -more safe- interpolation, by the use of an effective theory.
Status of heavy quark physics from the lattice
In practice, a full simulation is not doable since we need to take the large N limit to obtain a weakly curved gravitational background.

Supersymmetry accomplishes EWSB while remaining weakly coupled, making a plethora of calculations – spectrum, cross sections, decay rates, etc. all doable.
Technicolor Signals at the LHC
This accounting is a nontrivial task, which is intractable for the full renormalized calculation but doable for the single-mode coupling of Eq. 52 provided that the axial amplitude A is much lower than a quarter-wavelength of the mode’s axial standing wave (A (cid:28) z0/p), a condition met for typical A.

We should probably stress here that the wide survey should not be regarded as doable from the ground, because supernova distances at z ∼ 1 make use of y and J bands.
Dark energy constraints from a space-based supernova survey
This would be doable for very small texts (a text of 5 sentences has 120 possible orderings) but not for texts of a reasonable size. A more feasible way to validate our claim is to get multiple orderings of the same text from a large number of sub jects.

Therefore, in the following natural question was raised: what is the complexity of approximating the Jones polynomial for polynomially bounded k? It was left open whether it is BQP-hard, doable in BPP, or maybe somewhere in between.
The BQP-hardness of approximating the Jones Polynomial
For higher genus this program is theoretically doable, because hyperelliptic curves with non-trivial symmetry groups corresponds to symmetric configurations of ramification points on CP1 , but the number of possible symmetric configurations increases dramatically with genus.

Loosely speaking, we are going to mimic a Petrovskii-type criterion for higherorder parabolic equations such as (1.4) (we must admit that, literally, this goal is not and cannot be achieved literally, but a partial progress is indeed doable).
