A Foundational Approach to Physics

Peter Rowlands


A core level of basic information for physics is identified, based on an analysis of the characteristics of the parameters space, time, mass and charge. At this level, it is found that certain symmetries operate, which can be used to explain certain physical facts and even to derive new mathematical theorems. Applications are made to classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory and quantum mechanics.
