Investigating Multiparticle Systems

  • George H. Duffey
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 2)


In classical physics, each element of mass, each particle, is supposed to move as a coherent body along a smooth curve through space and time. It is distinguishable from each of its neighbors, whether or not it interacts with any of them.
