The writer describes the present state-of-the-art within the thought of invariant random fields. This idea is predicated on numerous varied parts of arithmetic, together with chance thought, differential geometry, harmonic research, and precise capabilities. 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 through the writer.
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?
Those lawsuits are dedicated to a large choice of things, either in concept and test, of particle physics similar to neutrino and astroparticle physics, exams of the normal version and past, and hadron physics. additionally lined are gravitation and cosmology, and physics from current and destiny accelerators.
