"The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor deserve”.
This is how Wigner puts it, and I completely agree with him.
Since I do like this gift very much, the only thing I can do is keep trying to understand it better. This, I think, is easier than proving to deserve it. Of course, everyone has his preferences, so I mainly focus on the (differential) geometrical side of the gift, that is, the side that does not depend on the coordinate system we use to play with it.
Being born as a theoretical physicist, I usually start at the “Physics Playground” when I want to play with my part of the gift. Usually, the first stop would be at the “Panoramic Quantum Wheel”, which, I have to admit, is always as beautiful as the first day. Every time I am amazed to discover how much geometry lies hidden inside the algebraic envelope of quantum theories. It is always like a revelation to me.
---------------MORE TO COME---------------
This led me to realize that, if you look carefully, geometry is everywhere. I dare to say that geometry is more like a life-attitude than a branch of mathematics.
Born and raised in Napoli where I grew up eating pizza and wondering about abstractness.
I did my BSc, MSc, and PhD at the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II.
