## Equations and other miscellany

### Lorentz factor

Anyone who claims to have produced "perfect" software obviously fails to understand the fundamental laws of the universe. Achieving zero bugs is akin to accelerating to the speed of light, since both are governed by the Lorentz factor:
where **B** = the number of bugs in a program
and **F** = the number that you fix before you consider the project "finished"
\\
This equation implies that it takes 2.3 times longer to fix 90% of the bugs, than if you hadn't fixed any bugs at all. However, it takes 7 times longer to fix 99% of the bugs, and if you want five nines (99.999%) quality then it will take 224 times longer (a one week estimate suddenly turns into 4 years).

### Mercedes Cortez

**Mercedes Cortez** is Juan's wayward daughter. She is initially set up as a possible love interest for Tommy Vercetti, but this plotline is never explored. Tommy is first introduced to her during a party aboard the Colonel's yacht. Afterwards, she asks Tommy to give her a ride to the Pole Position strip club. On another occasion, she parties with the band Love Fist. Later in the game, she becomes involved in the porn film industry, co-starring with Candy Suxxx in a film directed by Steve Scott and produced by Vercetti.

Mercedes Cortez was voiced by Fairuza Balk

### Petrea

The * Petrea* is an evergreen flowering vine.

Known species include:

### Angola

Not sure where 198.96.37.124 got the reference *(LeBillon, 1999)* from - his Ph.D. thesis? I think we need a better reference to the works of Dr Philippe Le Billon ...perhaps his recent book.
