An unattainability conjecture

Landsberg, P.T. (1998) An unattainability conjecture Superlattices and Microstructures, 23, (3-4), pp. 511-520.

Record type: Article


It is suggested that limits to the variation of physical variables are themselves unattainable, though they can be approached as closely as desired. This general unattainability principle is illustrated in various ways. It leads on to a study of how to remove infinities in physics when they cause conceptual problems, and how to introduce infinities or zeros for those boundary points in physics which are in some sense unattainable. An analogy between temperature in thermodynamics and time in cosmology is pointed out for the case when boundary points are involved.
