Physics, Theoretical, Computational, and Statistical Physics

Whatever was going to replace classical physics in the description of radiation and atomic phenomena had to confront the difficult task of somehow reconciling the wave-like and particle-like aspects ... More


Energy, the Subtle Concept: The discovery of Feynman's blocks from Leibniz to Einstein

Jennifer Coopersmith

Published in print:
2015

Subject:
Physics, Particle Physics / Astrophysics / Cosmology, History of Physics

Energy is explained through its history. Newton missed ‘energy’, Leibniz defined kinetic energy, and potential energy emerged from ideas about stored ‘live force’, the concept of ‘work’, analyses of ... More


The Scientific Method

Alvaro De Rújula

in Enjoy Our Universe: You Have No Other Choice
