Elements for physics : quantities, qualities, and intrinsic theories

Author: Albert Tarantola
Publisher: Berlin ; New York : Springer, ©2006.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"While usual presentations of physical theories emphasize the notion of physical quantity, this book shows that there is much to gain when introducing the notion of physical quality. The usual physical quantities simply appear as coordinates over the manifolds representing the physical qualities. This allows to develop physical theories that have a degree of invariance much deeper than the usual one. It is shown  Read more...

   schema:reviewBody ""While usual presentations of physical theories emphasize the notion of physical quantity, this book shows that there is much to gain when introducing the notion of physical quality. The usual physical quantities simply appear as coordinates over the manifolds representing the physical qualities. This allows to develop physical theories that have a degree of invariance much deeper than the usual one. It is shown that properly developed physical theories contain logarithms and exponentials of tensors: their conspicuous absence in usual theories suggests, in fact, that the fundamental invariance principle states in this book is lacking in present-day mathematical physics."--Jacket." ;
