100 years Werner Heisenberg: works and impact by Dietrich Papenfuß, Dieter Lüst, Wolfgang P. Schleich PDF

By Dietrich Papenfuß, Dieter Lüst, Wolfgang P. Schleich

Over forty well known scientists from everywhere in the international talk about the paintings and effect of Werner Heisenberg. The papers end result from the symposium held via the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung at the party of the one hundredth anniversary of Heisenberg's delivery, the most very important physicists of the twentieth century and cofounder of modern day quantum mechanics. Taking atomic and laser physics as their start line, the scientists illustrate the effect of Heisenberg's theories on astroparticle physics, high-energy physics and string idea correct as much as processing quantum details.

The method during which a picture is shaped, processed, and displayed might be conceptualized as a series of actual occasions known as the imaging chain. by way of mathematically modeling the imaging chain, we will achieve perception into the connection among the digicam layout parameters and the ensuing photo caliber.

Adaptive optics permits the theoretical restrict of angular solution to be completed from a wide telescope, regardless of the presence of turbulence. therefore an 8 meter classification telescope, comparable to one of many 4 within the Very huge Telescope operated by means of ESO in Chile, will in destiny be sometimes able to an angular solution of virtually zero.

Example text

He, as many other contributors and witnesses of the quantum revolution, did not later hesitate, when meeting deep difficulties, to invoke new breakdowns of established laws and theories. Bohr, confronted with the puzzle of b-decay, would hint at a violation of energy conservation and Heisenberg himself believed in a new fundamental length beyond which standard quantum mechanics would cease to be effective. This motivated him to start in the forties his far reaching S-matrix program, and later, in the fifties, to propose the non-linear field theories for a unified theory with an underlying scale.

Im Allgemeinen wird jeder Versuch, u¨ber die Wirklichkeit zu sprechen, gleichzeitig „statische“ und „dynamische“ Zu¨ge tragen. Dem klaren, rein statischen Denken droht die Gefahr, zur inhaltlosen Form zu entarten. Das dynamische Denken kann vage und unversta¨ndlich werden. We are now in a better position to understand the respective parts of abstraction and intuition in scientific research, according to Heisenberg’s views. The static modality accounts for the steady grounding into physical knowledge, the continuous sharpening of concepts, the strive for strict connections, laws, and other statements characteristic of a 28 Jan Lacki scientific account of reality.

Dieses Gefu¨hl bestimmt die Richtung, des Denkens, aber es geho¨rt zu seinem Wesen, dass die Zusammenha¨nge, auf die es gerichtet ist, nicht in Worte gefaßt werden ko¨nnen. Vielleicht kann man den Inhalt dessen, was in den letzten Abschnitten gesagt werden sollte, so zusammenfassen: Jeder Bereich der Wirklichkeit kann schließlich in der Sprache abgebildet werden. Der Abgrund, der verschiedene Bereiche trennt, kann nicht durch logisches Schließen oder folgerichtiges Weiterentwickeln der Sprache u¨berbru¨ckt werden.
