private thoughts of a physicist and chessplayer
“If I have seen further than others, it is because I was standing in between the shoulders of dwarfs.”
S.Coleman (via Betsy Devine)
That quote (with a slightly different wording) is usually attributed to Gell-Mann.
Allthough i rarely read your blog, it’s allways a delight.
IMHO it’s much better than our “introduction to physics” lecture.
Really Thomas ? I did not know that. Anyway, I will leave it as a Coleman quote – he deserves one.
Jcn, thank you for your encouragement. I will try to post more introductory physics pieces soon. I need to finish the one on top quark history also.
