Physics, Mathematics, Simulations

Regardless whether you in­tend to in­ves­ti­gate an idea for a new de­vice or to solve a tech­nical prob­lem, in most cases it proves help­ful to first trans­late these ideas or prob­lems into the lan­guage of math­e­mat­ics and check them against the con­straints im­posed by the known laws of physics.

This process transforms tech­nical is­sues into models and also helps to iden­tify their essence.

The obtained models can then be sim­u­lated us­ing dif­fer­ent tools, e.g., a spread­sheet pro­gram like "Libre­Office Calc" and "Mi­cro­soft Ex­cel" or — on the upper end of the scale — tailor-made soft­ware. It is even pos­si­ble to suc­cess­fully sim­ulate com­plex mod­els by just ap­ply­ing a spread­sheet program.

Feiner Services would like to as­sist you in ana­lyz­ing tech­nical ideas and prob­lems no mat­ter whether they con­cern op­tics, electronics, ra­di­o­ac­tiv­ity, chem­is­try, me­chan­ics or wire­less power transfer.


The premise of trans­lat­ing prob­lems into math­e­mat­ics was im­plied by Galileo Galilei:

"Philosophy [i.e. physics] is writ­ten in this grand book — I mean the uni­verse — which stands con­tin­u­ally open to our gaze, but it can­not be un­der­stood un­less one first learns ... the lan­guage ... in which it is writ­ten. It is writ­ten in the lan­guage of mathematics, ... ."
