Science Quotes by Josι Carlos Somoza (1 quote)
They think that differential equations are not reality. Hearing some colleagues speak, its as though theoretical physics was just playing house with plastic building blocks. This absurd idea has gained currency, and now people seem to feel that theoretical physicists are little more than dreamers locked away ivory towers. They think our games, our little houses, bear no relation to their everyday worries, their interests, their problems, or their welfare. But Im going to tell you something, and I want you to take it as a ground rule for this course. From now on I will be filling this board with equations. And when I'm done, I want you to do the following: look at those numbers, all those little numbers and Greek letters on the board, and repeat to yourselves, This is reality, repeat it over and over.
