Titlerole of mathematics in physical sciences : interdisciplinary and philosophical aspects
Author(s)Giovanni Boniolo (ed.);Paolo Budinich (ed.);Majda Trobok (ed.)
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2005.
Description1 online resource (x, 244 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteEven though mathematics and physics have been related for centuries and this relation appears to be unproblematic, there are many questions still open: Is mathematics really necessary for physics, or could physics exist without mathematics? Should we think physically and then add the mathematics apt to formalise our physical intuition, or should we think mathematically and then interpret physically the obtained results? Do we get mathematical objects by abstraction from real objects, or vice versa? Why is mathematics effective into physics? These are all relevant questions, whose answers are necessary to fully understand the status of physics, particularly of contemporary physics. The aim of this book is to offer plausible answers to such questions through both historical analyses of relevant cases, and philosophical analyses of the relations between mathematics and physics
