Relativity and the question of discretization in astronomy by Dominic G. B Edelen( Book )

13 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theoretical researches in general relativity and observational data from galactic astronomy combine in this volume in contributions to one of the oldest questions of natural philosophy: Is the structure of the physical world more adequately described by a continuous or a discrete mode of representation? Since the days of the Pythagoreans, this question has surfaced from time to time in various guises in science as well as in philosophy. One of the most bitterly contested and illuminating controversies between the continuous and the discrete viewpoints is to be found in the wave versus corpuscular description of optical phenom enae. This controversy was not resolved to the satisfaction of most of its protaganists until the development of the quantum theory. However, several obscurities that still becloud the question suggest that some deeper formulation may be necessary before more satisfactory answers can be given 1. The firm establishment of the validity of quantized structure and discrete energy distributions on the atomic scale following the ideas of Max Planck, together with the apparent absence of quan tization effect in astronomical and cosmic structures leaves uncertainties concerning the role played by the scale of the observer in perceiving or not perceiving discrete distributions. Some of the metaphysical inter pretations and implications of the quantum mechanics that have been made in recent years 2 would be subject to revision if the existence of discretized descriptions were to be established in astronomical and cosmic structures

10 Definitions Operations research, first called operational re search by P.M.S. Blackett (1) in Britain about 1938, has a broad zneaning illustrated by several exaznples in this section. Briefly, it znay be defined as the study of znan znachine systezns that have a purpose. In znore descriptive terzns, operations research involves the application of physical, biological, and social sciences in the znost quanti tative way possible. It thus draws on the disciplines of znedicine, psychology, and all forzns of engineering (2). As the following historical exaznples will show, an essential ste

Experiments in interplanetary biomigration and space contamination [by] I. Cooper and A.G. Wilson by Rand Corporation( Book )

1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The likelihood of auto-and-ancillary migration of viable micro-organisms is discussed. Experiments are suggested to determine the survival potentials of microorganisms under various space conditions, to establish the extent to which space sterilization of interplanetary instrument probes and other space vehicles may be relied upon to prevent the infecting of other celestial bodies, (or the infecting of the earth with alien life by returning probes), and to determine whether further sterilization procedures would be required
