Bit-string physics is an emerging body of theory which considers the universe to be a process of operations on strings of bits. Bit-string physics is often associated with A.F. Parker-Rhodes' combinatorial hierarchy, which is notable for its relationship with the electromagnetic and gravitational coupling constants of quantum theory. Other leading contributors in the field include H. Pierre Noyes, Ted Bastin, C.W. Kilmister, John Amson, and David McGoveran.
Critics of bit-string physics challenge that the theory has yet to present experimentally testable predictions. In a 2001 paper by Noyes, evidence was presented for predictions made by the theory that were later confirmed.
