The Prize is cancelled due to a number of factors, any one of which is sufficient, some of which are:
1 - As of now, I know of no active interest in the Prize. Any interest that is expressed to me after this announcement of cancellation of the prize would be considered by me to be irrelevant, and not even worthy of response or discussion.
2 - I have now myself written a summary book of my physics work and put it on the web as a free pdf web book (471 pages plus front and back covers) at:
3 - The Cornell arXiv no longer
seems to me to be as interesting or important as it once was.
Prior to Cancellation, and prior to February 2005 or December 2004, the terms of the prize were:
The sum of US$100,000.00 will be awarded to the author ( or authors - in case of multiple authors the sum to be divided into shares as equal as practicable, each author receiving one share - ) of the first paper to satisfy all of the following criteria:
1 - The paper is to be entitled "Calculations, including Particle Masses and Force Strengths, in a VoDou Physics Model".
2 - The paper is to be fully posted at or prior to submission for publication to Physical Review D on the archive hep-th of the e-print arXiv whose present primary URL is http://arXiv.org/ ( and also all mirror sites ) and is to be cross-listed on the archives gr-qc, hep-ph, quant-ph, and gen-ph, and said posting and cross-listings are to remain permanently on said e-print arXiv ( and also all mirror sites ) ( as used herein, "permanently" means at least up to the time of payment of the award ).
3 - After said paper has been fully posted on arXiv (so that said paper can be unambiguously identified by its arXiv posting data), said paper must be certified in writing by Offeror (which certification may be granted or withheld in Offeror's discretion) as, in the opinion of the certifier, describing accurately the physics content of the following material:a - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/2002SESAPS.html which deals with material including but not limited to
- Truth Quark Experimental Results,
- Truth Quark - Higgs - Vacua Excited States,
- Cl(1,7) Clifford Algebra,
- 8-Periodicity, and Hyperfinite von Neumann Algebra factor,
- D4-D5-E6 Lagrangian Structure and Particle Mass and Force Strength Calculations,
- Higgs Mass and Vacuum Expectation Value,
- Force Strengths,
- Weak Bosons and Weinberg Angle,
- Kobayashi-Maskawa Parameters,
- Proton-Neutron Mass Difference,
- UCC - DCC Baryon Mass Difference, and
- Root Vector Geometry of Fermions, SpaceTime, Gauge Bosons, and D4-D5-E6-E7-E8;
b - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/snucalc.html#asno which deals with material including but not limited toneutrino masses and mixing angles; and
c - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/coscongraviton.html which deals with material including but not limited to conformal gravity,dark energy, dark matter, ordinary matter, and ratios observed by WMAP.
Additional material that might be helpful background can be found at the web site whose base home page is at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/TShome.html and on web pages therein including but not limited to:i - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/VodouPhysics.html which deals with material including but not limited to binary choice, Clifford algebras, and physics;
ii - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/8idempotents.html which deals with physical interpretations of Cl(8) Clifford algebra idempotent and spinor structures;
iii - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/clfpq2.html#clifstructure which deals with physical interpretations of Cl(8) Clifford algebra graded structures;
iv - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/ClifTensorGeom.html which deals with material including but not limited to Clifford tensor products and physics;
v - the pdf file at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/E6StringBraneStdModelAR.pdf which deals with material including but not limited to string theory, E6, and the relevant VoDou Physics Model;
vi - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/orbifoldingE6st.html which deals with material including but not limited to orbifolding in string theory structures related to the relevant VoDou Physics Model; and
vii - the web page at http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/wireframe.html which deals with material including but not limited to wireframe structure of some geometric calculation factors.
4 - After the written opinion described in 3 hereinabove has been executed and a copy thereof has been delivered to Offeror, the paper is to appear fully published in Physical Review D.
5 - After said paper has appeared fully published in Physical Review D, said paper must be certified in writing by Offeror (which certification may be granted or withheld in Offeror's discretion) as, in the opinion of the certifier, describing accurately the physics content of the material set out in 3 hereinabove. This step is necessary because sometimes the published version of a paper differs from the submitted version (for example, changes might be required by referees or editors, etc.).
A sequence of events consistent with the above would be to:
The Offeror of this prize award is Frank Dodd (Tony) Smith, Jr., during his lifetime.

PS - In case anyone wonders why I don't just write and publish such a paper myself, here is a reason: I have been blacklisted from posting to Cornell's arXiv, and I would rather award $100,000.00 to the first person who can and does write and so publish such a paper than to pay a similar amount in legal fees of suing Cornell in New York.
PPS - February 2005: NOTE: My primary web site ISP changed in 2004/2005, but many pages have links based on an old primary site, so, if, for example, you try to go to a link to a file with path http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/ and the file is not found, then try the same file with one of these paths: http://www.valdostamuseum.org/hamsmith/ http://www.tony5m17h.net/
