  • Heisenberg And His Research Of Quantum Mechanics
    4,601 words
    Werner Heisenberg and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Werner Heisenberg, born in the dawn of the twentieth century became on eof its greatest physicists; he is also among its most controversial. While still in his early twenties, he was among the handful of bright, young men who created quantum mechanics, the basic physics of the atom, and he became a leader of nuclear physics and elementary particle research. He is best known for his uncertainty principle, a component of the so-called Cope...
  • Five Consistent Super String Theories
    1,676 words
    INTRODUCTION This document is for persons who have received their graduate degree in theoretical physics and are looking to make their way into the concentration of super string theory, and what postgraduate mathematics courses are required to do so. Supersting theory is one of the latest forms of theoretical physics and a popular topic with today's society. However, because of the highly advanced nature of the mathematics involved with Supersting theory, two postgraduate forms of mathematics ar...
  • Theories About Earth
    451 words
    In A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking There were very many interesting theories and facts that were brought up about physics. A couple of these theories and fact help lead me to deciding on my opinion about the future of physics in the 21st century. My opinion is that in the 21st century a couple of things will happen in the way of physics. First I think scientist will continue work on old experiments and make new theories. Another one of my thought are that scientist will prove previous...
  • Nature Of A Physical Theory
    1,930 words
    The question as to whether scientific theories can be shown to be true or false is a complex one. The answer depends on one's interpretation of the meaning of theory. To what does it refer Is its role to reveal the nature of reality, or is it merely a human construct In which case what do we mean by truth Is it an accurate description of reality, or does it simply refer to a successful theory that produces accurate predictions Duhem attacks this problem from a very strict non-metaphysical standp...
  • Identity Theory
    697 words
    Mental processes are physical is equivalent to what is coined The Identity Theory. Smart's theses is that mental events are identical to brain processes. The definition of neurophysiological is to say the science of neurons dealing with living matter such as the brain. Smart discounts Cartesian Dualism that depicts the mind as a separate entity than the physical body. In addition, Smart's theory is a posteriori claim, which is to say that through an observation or senses we can come to a factual...
