|Subject: ||RE: What will humanity's final mile WR be?|
graphing the progression of the world record in the mile / 1500 meters against the domain of time shows a linear-ish relationship. I suppose someone who is really good at math could figure out some kind of curve formula to fit the data and figure out a rough limit it approaches.
Or you could just plug the numbers into excel and have it generate a curve and equation for you. Also, do you really think it's a linear relationship? so in x number of years, the WR will be 1 second? Please.
Of course not. I would like to calculate the limit as time goes to infinity (a really big number) based on the appropriate formula representative of the current data. The instantaneous relationship is in fact linear. Has been for the last 50 years. This goes for the marathon too.
