THE HISTORY OF. MATHEMATICIANS AND physicists. CONCLUSION. This task will improve your understanding of the history of mathematicians and physicists.
THE HISTORY OF MATHEMATICIANS AND PHYSICISTS by Carmen Pareo Kandi Rachmadi Widdiharto Introduction ... Conclusion
Most people may not like the idea of studying mathematics and physics, because they feel that it is boring and hard to understand. They do not see how these subjects are related to their lives. Actually, people do not realize how often they use mathematics and physics everyday without even thinking about it. One way that these subjects may become more interesting is learning more about people who have helped to develop the equations and formulas that are used. When science was first being studied, the relationship between mathematics and physics was very close. It was impossible to separate these two subjects. Even today it is important to support scientific development. Students should understand the connection between mathematics and physics. In order to understand these subjects students must know about the people who made contributions to them.
You are members of a group of researchers who are studying the history of contributions to BOTH mathematics and physics. Each group will consist of five students. Each student in the group should research two different people from this list. After researching the people in the list go back to your group to discuss your findings. Then, choose five of them and describe the specific contribution that each person made to both mathematics and physics. Finally, you will be making a presentation to your classmates on your findings.

Physicists smash internet speed record
Last Updated Fri, 17 Oct 2003 17:10:49 GENEVA - Researchers have more than doubled the world speed record for internet data transfer. Scientists at the CERN particle physics laboratory in Switzerland sent the equivalent of a full-length DVD movie in about seven seconds.
Colleagues at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) received the data. The land record was set on Oct. 1 by transferring 1.1 terabytes of data over a 7,000-kilometre link in less than 30 minutes, the team said. Researchers announced the record on Thursday at the Internet2 conference in Indianapolis. Scientists want to transfer data more quickly for several experiments, such as simulations of the Big Bang. "This new record marks another major milestone towards our final goal of abolishing distances and, in so doing, to enable more efficient worldwide scientific collaboration," said Oliver Martin in a release. Martin is head of external networking at CERN.

66. Contributions Of Physics To The Information Age

Contributions of Physics to the Information Age

Department of Physics, UCLA
Quantum Mechanics
Computers The Transistor The Web ... History
Some people may believe that 20th and 21st century physics research has less of a direct impact on their daily lives than biology, chemistry, engineering, and other fields. Perhaps they think of physics as an abstract, enigmatic, or purely academic endeavor. Others think that physics only contributes to national defense and medical imaging . I created this page to dispel those myths.
Nearly everyone would agree that the computer, the transistor, and the World Wide Web are among the greatest inventions of the 20th century. Economists and laymen alike know that today's entire world economy is inextricably linked to these technologies. The daily lives of a large fraction of Earth's inhabitants would be substantially different were it not for their inventions. Most would agree that America's preeminence in computer and information technology is at least partly responsible for its status as an "economic superpower." The wealth of other nations such as Japan, Taiwan, countries in Western Europe, and others is also due, in part, to their embracement of, and contributions to, the information age.
Read below to learn these little known facts: The electronic digital computer, the transistor, the laser, and even the World Wide Web were all invented by physicists. These inventions make up the foundation of modern technology.

70. Sokal's Paper
A physicists attempt to prove his hypothesis that a leading North American journal of cultural studies . . . would publish an article liberally salted with nonsense if (a)it sounded good and (b) it flattered the editors' ideological preconceptions
The full text of Alan Sokal's article follows. The article tests the hypothesis that The hypothesis was not disproved. For a review, click here . One is tempted to regard the whole affair as a sophomoric prank, were it not for its frightening implications. Namely, that a silent tide of unreason threatens to overwhelm our institutions of higher learning, and to dictate from a pulpit of blind, intolerant, righteous ignorance what we may correctly do, say and think.

physicists study the behaviour and interactions of matter and force. The laws of physics are generally expressed as mathematical relations.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Physics (from Greek physikos natural physis Nature ) is the science of Nature in the broadest sense. Physicists study the behaviour and interactions of matter and force . The laws of physics are generally expressed as mathematical relations. Physics is very closely related to the other natural sciences , particularly chemistry , the science of molecules and the chemical compounds that they form in bulk. Chemistry draws on many fields of physics, particularly quantum mechanics thermodynamics and electromagnetism . However, chemical phenomena are sufficiently varied and complex that chemistry is usually regarded as a separate discipline. Below is an overview of the major subfields and concepts in physics, followed by a brief outline of the history of physics and its subfields.

QuarkNet brings high school students and teachers to the frontier of 21st century research that seeks to research some of the mysteries about the structure of matter and the fundamental forces of nature. QuarkNet centers are connected to high-energy physics experiments operating at CERN in Switzerland, at Fermilab in Illinois, at SLAC in Califormia and others. Within two years, we expect to form 60 centers associated with research groups at universities and labs across the U.S. (50 already operational). Physicists mentor and collaborate with high school teachers. Through these collaborations:
  • Students learn fundamental physics as they analyze live online data and participate in inquiry-oriented investigations.
  • Teachers join research teams with physicists at a local university or laboratory.

So, you want a job as a physicist? Well, good luck! Looking for a career in physics today can be even more difficult than earning the degree itself. Despite what the ads may tell you, a college degree does not guarantee a good job. Even an advanced degree won't ensure a good paying, rewarding job as a researcher or scientist.
Within these web pages is just a little bit of information and friendly advice from a fellow physicist and job seeker. I suggest reading these pages in their entirety. Anything you find useful is yours to keep, no charge. Anything you don't like, don't use. I hope you enjoy these pages. And, as always, feel free to E-mail me for additional comments, criticism and questions.
These pages are short on graphics and cute little pictures because they are not neccessary. I tried to keep things as simple as possible. Also, these pages are not designed for physicists with a Doctorate or looking for post-doctorate work. My target demographic for these web pages are scientists who hold either a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Physics. Of course, everyone is free to examine the information contained here. I just didn't want any complaints.

Previous News for April 2004 Next Physicists move closer to the quantum limit
2 April 2004 A new experiment in the US has come close to detecting quantum effects in a macroscopic object. Keith Schwab and colleagues from the National Security Agency (NSA) working at the University of Maryland have measured the vibrations of a tiny nanoelectromechanical arm to probe the limits at which quantum behaviour breaks down and classical physics takes over. Although the experiment was not quite sensitive enough to test the uncertainty principle, it has come closer to doing so than previous attempts (M D LaHaye et al. Science The uncertainty principle states that we cannot simultaneously know both the position and velocity of a particle with complete certainty. The principle is used to describe the motion of particles at the atomic level, but has thus far not been observed in the behaviour of macroscopic objects. Such behaviour is described by classical physics. To find out whether or not the uncertainty principle extends up to the macroscopic world, Schwab and colleagues studied the motion of a vibrating mechanical arm made from silicon nitride. At just 8 microns (8x10
