Idealizations in Physics
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Idealizations are used routinely in the physical sciences. Commonly, their use is unproblematic. However there are many cases in which they introduce difficulties that may pass unnoticed and thereby compromise the analysis and our understanding of its foundations. In five lectures John Norton will investigate idealizations of this problematic type, mostly in statistical physics.
