I am a retired Marine that has decided to go back to school and am currently working on paper that discusses the future of Mobile Computing. In this paper I am introducing a hypothetical process that assist us in forecasting the future of mobile computing. To do this there are three arguments that must be established as true, before we can forecast where mobile computing is heading. To complicate things, I decided to incorporate logical mathematics into this by taking each argument and writing it out in logically. Now, I have been trying to teach myself this for about 7 to 8 months - I think that I have done it correctly but would like your opinion on what I've done.

If you could please help me correct what I am working on, that would be great. My objectives here are to properly present these in paper and further my education by taking in your constructive criticism and advise. Don't worry - I am a Retired Marine and that comes with plenty thick skin. Your advise is valuable and greatly appreciated.

**First Argument**. Establishing Integrated Circuits. As we know, integrated circuits can be forecasted through the use of Moore’s Law (1), hence the verbally defined equation for integrated circuits is: Integrated Circuits double every two years.

**Moore's Law - tcf=tcc(2^(y/2)**

- forecasted transistor count (tcf)

- current transistor count (tcc)

**∴x=(tcf=tcc(2^(y/2)))**

Here x represents the forecasted count of integrated circuits which are calculated using Moore’s Law.

**Second Argument**. Establishing Technological Miniaturization. There’s only one basic rule when it comes to technological miniaturization and that is: In order for technological miniaturization to be true, the evolution of integrated circuits has to be established.

**(∃x→x)↔Q**

Here Q represents technological miniaturization, only if integrated circuits can be predicted.

**Third Argument**. Establishing Technological Convergence. In order for technological convergence to be true, the proper computing technology (A), communication technology (B), and software platforms (C) must be established.

**(A→B→C)↔P**

Here P represents technological convergence, only if the determining factors are true.

**Wrapping all up together**. Establishing the Logical Equation. In order to forecast mobile computing we must establish where integrated circuits will be and by doing so, we can establish technological miniaturization and technological convergence only if the proper computing technology, communication technology, and software platforms are established.

**M(y)↔((∴x=(tcf=tcc(2^(y/2) )))↔Q)∧((A→B→C)↔P)**

Here M represents Mobile Computing while y represents forecasting, which can only be established only if the other elements are established as true.

Now, there is no requirement for me to add this to the paper - I believe it will be an added bonus and something that will also help me along the way as seek to further my higher learning. So, this is where I am at with this element of the paper.

Am I on the right path - did I do this correctly? Please let me know.

Respectfully
