Most people think of “seeing” and “observing” directly with their senses. But for physicists, these words refer to much more indirect measurements involving a train of theoretical logic by which we can interpret what is “seen.”- Lisa Randall
Cubist Art: Picasso’s painting ‘Portrait of Dora Maar’
Cubist art revolted against the restrictions that perspective imposed. Picasso’s art shows a clear rejection of the perspective, with women’s faces viewed simultaneously from several angles. Picasso’s paintings show multiple perspectives, as though they were painted by someone from the 4th dimension, able to see all perspectives simultaneously.
Sean from Cosmic Variance writes his opening post by including the title, “The language of Science”.
I would have said maths as well, yet, as a Layman there is much for me to learn.
THOMAS BANCHOFF has been a professor of mathematics at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, since 1967. He has written two books and fifty articles on geometric topics, frequently incorporating interactive computer graphics techniques in the study of phenomena in the fourth and higher dimensions
The marriage between computer and math language(Banchoff) I would say would be important from the prospective of displaying imaging, seen in the development of abstract language as used in numerical relativity? Accummalated data gained from LIGO operations. Time variable measures?
My first demonstration was with a Calabi Yau model of the torso. Visually seeing this way, helped to progress understanding. The transferance from the math structure to imaging in computer, to me, seemed very hard thing to do.
Where a dictionary proceeds in a circular manner, defining a word by reference to another, the basic concepts of mathematics are infinitely closer to an indecomposable element“, a kind of elementary particle” of thought with a minimal amount of ambiguity in their definition.
If the math is right, the “concepts spoken,” will be right also?
How such reductionism is held to the values of science, is seen in the work of the calorimeters. Glast and LHC designs give introspective views of how fine our perspective is being shaped. Can we see the underlying imaging as a toll, respective of reductionism as seeing the dynamical and geoemtrical background to all events measured? LIGO in data accumulation, describing the infomration released into the bulk perspective.
In the theory of relativity, momentum is not proportional to velocity at such speeds.) Thus high-momentum particles will curve very little, while low-momentum particles will curve significantly; the amount of curvature can be quantified and the particle momentum can be determined from this value.
