Because the Fine Structure Constant has a physical and not a mathematical
definition my intuition tells me it must be computable; and indeed we've
already computed a very good approximation of it and there is no reason to
think we couldn't do even better if we had faster computers that could sum
up more of those Feynman diagrams.
