Symmetry and Dynamics: Two Distinct Methodologies from Kepler to Supersymmetry

  • A. O. Barut


Symmetry and Dynamics are different ways of formulating the laws of physics, not necessarily one derivable from the other; sometimes conflicting, sometimes complementary to each other, often answering to different typs of questions, together necessary for a more complete understanding of nature. The scope and limitations of both methods are investigated.
