"There are at present fundamental problems in theoretical physics awaiting solution, e.g., the relativistic formulation of quantum mechanics and the nature of atomic nuclei (to be followed by more difficult ones such as the problem of life), the solution of which problems will presumably require a more drastic revision of our fundamental concepts than any that have gone before."  P.A.M. Dirac, Proc. Roy. Soc. A 133, 60 1931. "It has been suggested that the human visual system uses a curve of low energy when completing a contour.'"  B. K. P. Horn in "The curve of least energy", ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software, Vol. 9, No. 4, December 1983, Pages 441460. 
We have described earlier the constraint of existence in 3D in the macroscopic observer's, Obs_{M} , measurement frame, i.e. coordinate time frame. There we had mentioned how the stability of the structures was dependent upon the formation of the least energy surfaces. The energy plays an important role in our everyday life. However in essence, the conventional energy is equivalent to the disordered information ^{1}. Thus the formation of least energy surfaces, is equivalent to the formation of the surfaces with an objective to minimize the disorder. The formation of the leastenergy or leastdisorder surface, is important as it provides us with the knowledge of the geometric structure of the infinitesimal volume element dV_{j} of the measurement metric. The fundamental geodesic of measurement used by the electronphoton interaction or Obs_{c}, will lie on dV_{j}. The surface dV_{j} could be spherical, ellipsoidal, or any other shape. The surfaces formed are likely to be in Planck's dimensions. We will be discussing the criterion to form these surfaces in one dimension. The argument, can be generalized to any multidimensional manifold. The energy corresponding to a curve passing through two neighbouring points with the arc length ds, is given as: E = ∫ κ^{2} ds, where κ is the curvature of the arc, and it is related to the radius of the arc ρ as, κ = 1/ρ. Therefore for a pure point, the curvature is infinite and the radius is zero. Similarly for a precise straight line the curvature is zero, and hence the radius is infinite. The simplest case to consider, is when a curve is completed using a single arc. The curve of leastenergy, is a circle and the corresponding leastenergy surface is the surface of a sphere. In ideal discrete measurement space, no two measurements are alike. Consequently each ds, is of different curvature and different radii. If we plot a curve using same origin as reference, we run into a rather serious problem, as shown below: The curve on left, is formed using a single arc. In this case when arcs are connected with respect to the same origin, a smooth curve i.e. a circle is formed, which is the curve of leastenergy or the curve of leastdisorder in this case. A real life example, is the surface formed by a soap bubble. However the situation in Planck's domain, is likely to be a little bit more complicated. As shown on the right in the picture above, if we try to connect arcs of varying curvatures using the same origin, a "smooth" curve can not be formed. An approach to solve this problem, is as following: We connect two arcs ds_{1} and ds_{2}, whose tangents at the end points are infinitesimally close to each other in their values. Now we can proceed to complete the curve, by connecting another arcds_{3} to the arcds_{2} in similar fashion, and so on. Thus we can form a curve based on the criterion of matching tangents only. Now we have a range of familiar geometric figures as possible solutions, to the problem of forming the curve of leastdisorder. They are shown below: These shapes appear in various phenomena in nature, however which one of them corresponds to the curve of leastdisorder when the number of arcs approaches infinity, is not very obvious. To determine the nature of the infinitesimal volume dV_{j}, we have to find the geometric shape as the number of arcs approach ∞_{j}. The energy stored in a semicircle of unit radius, number of arcs = 1, can easily shown to be π/2. As the number of arcs is increased, the amount of energy stored in the curve can be shown to be decreasing. These values are shown below^{2}:
In discrete measurement space, the appearance of the Gamma function is always a good sign, because of the presence of the term e^{q} (eqn. iv). This also means that Beta function can not be far behind. Let us consider the coordinate differential ds^{2}, defined in General Theory of Relativity as: ds^{2} = g_{μν} x^{μ} x^{ν}, where the value of ds^{2} depends upon the metric tensor g_{μν}. The curve of leastdisorder, provides a method to estimate ds itself. Since ds is equivalently the curve of least energy, it will be an invariant. The requirements for the invariance of ds, are much more strict than those for ds^{2}. We note that in jspace we are measuring the information space itself, with no assumption made about the nature of the information, such as known physical objects or any other known phenomenon. We are discussing here, the formation of a manifold from which the metric in observer's measurement space is derived. The relationship between the topology, the manifold, and the metric is shown here:
The topological space in this case is defined by δ_{i}. The curve of leastenergy represents the manifold corresponding to the measurements made by an observer of maximum efficiency Obs_{c} (v/c ~ 1). The metrics in various observers' measurement systems, are given by respective g_{μν}'s and g_{mn}'s. We should also mention that the problem of the curve of leastenergy or leastdisorder, is equivalent to the problem of the resource optimization in jspace, which we have discussed earlier. The curve of leastdisorder provides a solution for the problem of the origin in the discrete measurement space or jspace, in a most satisfactory manner. The origin is defined in the manifold using a leastdisorder curve and then coordinate systems are developed in various metric spaces, based on this definition of origin. In other words, the measurements in the jspace, can be performed based on the value of ds, which is finite with the leastdisorder criterion, and in essence defines the value of 0_{j} for various measurement metrics. The curve of leastdisorder ds, is independent of the coordinate frames which require complicated metric tensors to determine the coordinate differential ds^{2}. More importantly, ds brings us closer to the underlying topological space, which governs the formation of the structures at cosmic as well as Planck scales. ___________________
1. One way to think about it is that, if we assume that pure information is being fed to a black hole, the output of the black hole will be some energy which essentially, is the disordered information. In similar fashion, we can feed disordered information to a black hole, and in this case nothing would come out except for some occasional burps. 2. The numerical values and the subsequent discussion on Cesaro form and Whewell equation, are from the publication by B. K. P. Horn, "The curve of least energy", ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software, Vol. 9, No. 4, December 1983, Pages 441460. ***
