These explanations work by providing information about what makes certain facts especially inevitable - more necessary than the ordinary laws of nature connecting causes to their effects. This book also offers original accounts of several other varieties of non-causal scientific explanation. Dimensional explanations work by showing how some law of nature arises merely from the dimensional relations among the quantities involved. Scholars believe, and we concur, that this work is important enough to be preserved, reproduced, and made generally available to the public.
Also in this Book Books about Teaching Methods discuss the principles used by teachers in educational institutions. Some towering figures in science have to speak for themselves. A classic of science, this volume is an eminently suitable text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. Book description About the Book Books that contain College Guides provide information to prospective students about courses, staff and facilities at colleges and universities. In the Author's Own Words: "We may find illustrations of the highest doctrines of science in games and gymnastics, in traveling by land and by water, in storms of the air and of the sea, and wherever there is matter in motion. Our titles are produced from scans of the original books and as a result may sometimes have imperfections.
The author describes experiments that demonstrate the principal facts relating an electric charge as a quantity capable of being measured, deductions from these facts, and the exhibition of electrical phenomena. Gibbs showed how statistical mechanics could be used even to extend thermodynamics beyond classical thermodynamics, to systems of any number of degrees of freedom including microscopic systems and non- extensive systems. Some towering figures in science have to speak for themselves. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. Many physicists have regarded the laws of kinematics, the great conservation laws, the coordinate transformations, and the parallelogram of forces as having explanations by constraint. This work is in the public domain in the United States of America, and possibly other nations.

Please do not remove it. Product Details Albert Einstein characterized the work of James Clerk Maxwell as the "most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton.
Come home to the books that made a difference! Mathematical explanation connects to a host of other important mathematical ideas, including coincidences in mathematics, the significance of giving multiple proofs of the same result, and natural properties in mathematics.
One important kind of non-causal scientific explanation is termed explanation by constraint. And in this Book Books about Mathematics consider problems that encompass quantity, space, and rates of change, test theories by with mathematical methods, derive statistical models that estimate actual activity to improve our understanding of real phenomena.
At the same time, Gibbs fully generalized and expanded statistical mechanics into the form in which it is known today. Really statistical explanations include explanations that appeal to regression toward the mean and other canonical manifestations of chance.
It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. Gibbs wrote in to his colleague Lord Rayleigh Just now I am trying to get ready for publication something on thermodynamics from the a-priori point of view, or rather on 'statistical mechanics' [ Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.
A classic of science, this volume is an eminently suitable text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. This book also offers original accounts of several other varieties of non-causal scientific explanation. Introducing many examples drawn from actual science and mathematics, with extended discussions of examples from Lagrange, Desargues, Thomson, Sylvester, Maxwell, Rayleigh, Einstein, and Feynman, Because Without Cause's proposals and examples should set the agenda for future work on non-causal explanation.
Gibbs showed how statistical mechanics could be used even to extend thermodynamics beyond classical thermodynamics, to systems of any number of degrees of freedom including microscopic systems and non- extensive systems. Our titles are produced from scans of the original books and as a result may sometimes have imperfections.
Such is James Clerk Maxwell —the Scottish physicist and mathematician who formulated the basic equations of classical electromagnetic theory.
In this book, Marc Lange proposes philosophical accounts of many kinds of non-causal explanations in science and mathematics.

As a reproduction of a historical artifact, this work may contain missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. Many physicists have regarded the laws of kinematics, the great conservation laws, the coordinate transformations, and the parallelogram of forces as having explanations by constraint.
These explanations work by providing information about what makes certain facts especially inevitable - more necessary than the ordinary laws of nature connecting causes to their effects.

Do not assume that just because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
