The writer describes the present cutting-edge within the thought of invariant random fields. This concept is predicated on numerous various components of arithmetic, together with chance thought, differential geometry, harmonic research, and distinctive services. the current quantity unifies many effects scattered during the mathematical, actual, and engineering literature, in addition to it introduces new effects from this quarter first proved by way of the writer.

Physik ohne Realität: Tiefsinn oder Wahnsinn? (German Edition)

Beschreiben die Begriffe der modernen Physik die „Realität“ oder sind sie nur Hilfsmittel und Rechenwerkzeuge? Wie können reale Objekte aus Atomen aufgebaut sein, wenn diese angeblich gar keine realen Eigenschaften vor deren Messung besitzen? Wie kann Schrödingers Wellenfunktion erfolgreich die Struktur und Stabilität von Atomen, Molekülen und Festkörpern beschreiben, wenn sie nur „menschliches Wissen“ oder abstrakte „Information“ darstellt?
