Lifestyles is considered one of our most simple innovations, and but whilst tested without delay it proves remarkably contradictory and elusive, encompassing either the broadest and the main particular phenomena. we will be able to see this uncertainty approximately lifestyles in our behavior of forthcoming it as anything straight away clinical and mystical, within the go back of vitalisms of every kind, and within the pervasive politicization of existence.
The writer describes the present cutting-edge within the conception of invariant random fields. This conception is predicated on numerous diversified components of arithmetic, together with chance idea, differential geometry, harmonic research, and distinctive capabilities. the current quantity unifies many effects scattered during the mathematical, actual, and engineering literature, in addition to it introduces new effects from this sector first proved by means of 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 complaints are dedicated to a large choice of things, either in thought and test, of particle physics comparable to neutrino and astroparticle physics, assessments of the normal version and past, and hadron physics. additionally lined are gravitation and cosmology, and physics from current and destiny accelerators.
