QuoteOriginally posted by: rmaxQuoteOriginally posted by: NThe bedrock physics uncertainty principle is a bunch of crap. It's just an artifact of math-challenged physicists doing their work in Hilbert space.Couple of points:1/ Only mathematicians, quants Psychology students believe they have the answer to everything. Physicists tend to believe they are trying to model reality rather than there being an all encompassing truth.2/ HUP looks OK to me when I see how it has been derived. If anyone has a good proof as to why it is crap I'd like to see it (you can PM me in case you are concerned other people will steal it - I promise I won't submit it to the guys in Sweden and claim my Nobel prize!).QuoteIt also does not help their credibility that every couple of years I pick up a paper and someone discovers something that "changes everything" in how we should look at some physics issue. Kind of like a bunch of clowns running around with whoppie cushions. rmax,HUP looks great if you do your work in 1 or 2 dimensions, but from simple classical mechanics, you know that angular momentum in 3 dimensions is not in Hilbert space (Riemann manifold).z,Clearly you know NMR is not in S0_3, right?N
