|How physics comes to sing in mathematical tune?|
|英文摘要||That any scientific law and theorem should be expressible in mathematical terms is nowadays taken for granted. This is especially true in physics, where any theory is required to be mathematically complete and self-consistent. Such a high level of sophistication, of course, is not achieved in one day, but rather via the consecutive efforts of many great scientists over the 4,000 years of history. In this talk, the speaker will elaborate and recount the seminal developments which led mathematics to become the language of all physical theories, starting from the Babylonian period chronologically.|
