Heute m?chte ich auf folgendes ?International meeting? in Budapest aufmerksam machen:
Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy in the Interpretations of Relativity Theory, Budapest, 7 - 9. September 2007.
Einleitend hei?t es hierzu:
GENERAL OBJECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE
The objective of the conference is to deliberate the mathematical, physical and philosophical elements of different understandings of Relativity Theory; the physical and philosophical arguments and commitments shaping its interpretations, including its applications, especially those in relativistic cosmology and relativistic quantum theory. The organizing committee is open for examination of recent advantages in the interpretational problems of Relativity Theory, as well as, for analysis of the cultural, ideological and philosophical factors that have roles in its evolution, and development of the modern physical world view determined to a considerable extent by that theory. The conference intends to review the fruitfulness of orthodox Relativity, as developed from the Einstein-Minkowski formulation, and to suggest how history and philosophy of science clarify the relationship between the accepted relativistic formal structure and the various physical interpretations associated with it.
While the organizing committee encourages critical investigations and welcomes both Einsteinian and non-Einsteinian (Lorentzian, etc.) approaches, including the recently proposed ether-type theories, it is assumed that the received formal structure of the theory is valid and anti-relativistic papers will not be accepted. Metaphysical consideration connected to Relativity Theory may be included into the program only if it definitely contributes to the clarification of the mathematical, physical and philosophical aspects of the theory and is kept closely related to science.
The meeting was initiated by Professor Duffy, the establisher and organizer of the regular meetings on the Physical Interpretation of Relativity Theory (PIRT) in London, and should contribute to the series of PIRT meetings by discussing the usual PIRT themes with a special emphasis on the philosophical aspects but not excluding mathematical and physical approaches. The organizing committee equally waits for contributions by mathematicians, physicists and philosophers and hopes that the meeting will give opportunity to establish communication among researchers of the region and those of other parts of the world working in this field.
The standard length of an address will be 30 minutes but there will be provision for longer contributions by invited speakers (circa 40 minutes) and shorter contributions (circa 20 minutes).
