Critical Mass How One Thing Leads To Another

Phase transitions that happen as a system passes through a critical point are called critical phase (or second-order) phase transitions, while ones that involve sudden jumps in a property of the system, such as density, are called first-order phase transitions.[1]in new waysThank you for your supportThere was a section that described a Bacon number, which is how far away an actor is from acting directly with Kevin BaconI mean, maybe there is some statistical truth to this, but what about the psychological (in)validity of conjuring a method to discover what's already known? Is there no concept of a double-blind test for judging the validity of statisical hindcasting? More interesting to me would be to know predictions made from the model a few years ago and how accurately they predicted what's unfolded since then.So, at this point I would say the book is definitely a mass, but I don't know how critical it is to my interestsThe author seems to have been overcome by the desire to share everything he knows, instead of cutting away the excess foliage and leaving the beauty of the blooms.This is frustrating, because the good stuff really is goodIn his recent book The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell sought to explain how fashions change and crime rates suddenly vary using techniques drawn from psychology and epidemiologyOct 18, 2011 Eric Rautenbach rated it it was ok Philip Ball, in Critical Mass, explores the possibility of systems always following specific patterns, even to the point where an outcome can be accurately predictedCritical Mass.more flag 1 likeLike see review Critical Mass is not a book that belongs to any particular category by itself, but rather dwells into sociology, psychology, physics & statistical physics, mathematics & fractals, chaos & order, game theory & the prisoner's dilemma & many othersAs Adam Smith wrote in his Astronomy, it is a constant temptation in philosophy to mistake scientific metaphors "for the real chains which Nature makes use of to bind together her several operations"A long line of cars on a motorway, for example, is presented by Ball as a relatively stable physical bodyVan de la manoSuch hypotheses can be adequately proven in mathematical models or in chemical reaction up to the point where it becomes an accepted theorem or fact"predicted" Make connections with other facts you know(2003)No lo logra por supuestoIt seems there are situations where people behave like the particles loved by physicists, and the insights derived from computer models can, for example, provide an understanding of crowd behaviourCultureBooksReviews Critical Mass: How one thing leads to another by Philip Ball Could the laws of physics really help us to solve our social problems? James Harkin admires an elegant argument but finds that it doesn't go quite far enough Sunday 22 February 2004 00:00 GMT Click to followThe Independent Culture More than a book, this is an intellectual curiosityThe abstractions and ruthless logic through which the classical political economists sought to understand society might be simplifications, he argues, but it is rather cheap to suggest that they are inhumanClose Thank you for supporting independent.co.uk Continue to our site c3545f6b32
