Physics of Scale Timelines


The scientists who helped develop the study of quantum field theories at small scales and the scientists who introduced the use of scaling techniques to study critical phenomena sometimes generate different periodizations of the evolution of their closely related fields. These periodizations reflect differences about the historical development of common practices, the conceptual content and foundations of those practices, and their epistemic implications. The master timeline below contains events in different periodizations, depending on the topic categories chosen for viewing. Each event can become a topic of discussion, with members commenting on current entries, as well as adding any further entries they deem relevant.
