In physics it could come under Huygens Principle. The easiest way for me is If you look at this you find that it's a vector in the direction of motion, and, per the uncertainty principle, describes the degree of uncertainty in terms of the relationship between displacement and momentum. I expect disagreement, but that's why we're here. Wigner, who worked on group theory and symmetries in physics, wrote a famous article on the “Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Physical Sciences”, Communications in Pure and Applied Mathematics, vol. Since the time of Newton & Huygens physicists have been arguing over the wave-particle thing. Edited by: RC Davison • updated: 6/8/2011. Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, formulated by the theoretical physicist in 1927, is one of the cornerstones of quantum mechanics.

It still wouldn't mean that OTCs exist, but it would mean the mathematical model of an OTC would be a valid representation of a physical reality (gravity). Understanding The Conservation Of Momentum Principle. A student of mathematics, physics and astronomy, he made a number of significant contributions to each. How To Solve Elastic Collision Problems. Entropy, Huygens' Principle; the wave/particle, energy/mass, space/time, and E/B dualities; and time and all its arrows and asymmetries emerge from a common, foundational physical model. The laws of reflection and refraction according to the Huygens' Principle. Christiaan Huygens was a multi-disciplined scientist and inventor. And for the mathematically inclined, go here to see how Huygens' Principle has been expanded upon. A theorist who gave us the wave theory of light, Huygens discovered Titan and explained Saturn's rings. My thesis is that the “wave” theory of light is a circular argument, based on Huygens untested assumption that waves impinge on a slit (or edge). Historical And Modern Theories Of The Solar System.
