True Values and Traceability

Abstract

As much as we expect the laws of physics to be true, we expect the constants of physics to possess true values. Metrology starts from here, from the very grasping of true values and, following the modus operandi of physicists, their traceability to the primary standards of the system of physical units agreed on.
