In physics, a “naïve calculation” is one that omits some important effect, or makes some unwarranted simplification that, when properly understood, may significantly change the answer. Which, in turn, reminds me of one of my favourite book, Rudolf Peierls’s “Surprises in Theoretical Physics” (and its sequel, “More Surprises ”).
