A Changing Dichotomy: The Conception of the "Macroscopic" and "Microscopic" Worlds in the History of Physics

- History, Physics
- 2019

This short essay traces the conceptual history of micro- and macroscopicity in the context of physical science. By focusing on three distinct episodes spanning five centuries, we show the scientific… Expand

Determination of the Boltzmann constant by the equipartition theorem for capacitors

- Physics
- European Journal of Physics
- 2019

A new experimental set-up for Boltzmann constant measurement is described. Statistically averaged square of voltage $\left $ is measured for different capacitances $C$. Boltzmann constant is… Expand

Notes on stochastic processes Paul Keeler

- 2018

A stochastic process is a type of mathematical object studied in mathematics, particularly in probability theory, which can be used to represent some type of random evolution or change of a system.… Expand

Notes on stochastic processes

- 2016

A stochastic process is a type of mathematical object studied in mathematics, particularly in probability theory, which shows some type of a randomness. There are many types of stochastic processes… Expand

Operational derivation of Boltzmann distribution with Maxwell’s demon model

- Physics, Medicine
- Scientific reports
- 2015

Here, a derivation of the Boltzmann distribution in equilibrium as an example is presented, without hypothesizing the principle of maximum entropy, and the dissipation-fluctuation relation is demonstrated to show the possibility in this direction. Expand

Concepts against mathematics: self-inconsistency in thermodynamic evaluations

- Mathematics
- 2011

Various ways of thermodynamic evaluations can yield different results, contradicting to one another. Such a case is considered a paradox, with the attempts to solve it. This is because thermodynamics… Expand

Beyond switches: Rotaxane- and catenane-based synthetic molecular motors

- Physics
- 2008

Nature uses molecular motors and machines in virtually every significant biological process, but learning how to design and assemble simpler artificial structures that function through controlled… Expand

A heurística de Boltzmann e a emergência do programa mecânico-estatístico

- Computer Science
- 2006

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the construction of a statistical approach as a heuristic tool to understand the relations between mechanics and thermodynamics inside Ludwig Boltzmann's… Expand

Duhem and cartwright on the truth of laws

- Philosophy
- Synthese
- 2004

Nancy Cartwright has drawn attention to how explanations are actually given in mathematical sciences. She argues that these procedures support an antirealist thesis that fundamental explanatory laws… Expand
