Introduction and Basic Theory for a Particle in a Field

  • W. T. Dixon


An interesting definition of science is that it is a systematized study. This implies that a scientist’s work is divided into two parts: first, he makes observations and secondly, he arranges them into some sort of order. Modern science, and in particular, physical science, can be regarded as one of the possible branches of development of “science”, and its practical (i.e. observational) and theoretical (systematizing) methods have gradually become standardized. These methods are respectively the use of experiments to reproduce favourable conditions for observing a given phenomenon, and the assigning of numbers to certain aspects of observations, in order to facilitate the collecting and ordering (i.e. the interpretation) of corresponding “facts”.
