The Manifold Universe

  • David Oliver


Relativistic speeds turn motion into an inherently many-body problem. But most motions at the human and planetary scale are not relativistic and therefore not inherently many-body. Solar system motions of macroscopic bodies including the atmosphere and oceans of a planet like the earth are well described nonrelativistically according to the mechanics of Galilean relativity. At the scale of the atom, the orbital speed of an electron is only a small fraction of the speed of light. The states of the hydrogen atom are well predicted by the nonrelativistic laws of quantum motion.
