Physics and Science

(elkement. Last changed: 2019-05-12. Created: 2015-08-17. Tags: Physics, Science. German Version.)

I am fascinated by the positive impact of (re-)learning theoretical physics. It purges the mind, and it makes me a better engineer and hacker - though my engineering and hacking does not require a lot of true physics.

While am also interested in fields I had not specialized originally, like Quantum Field Theory or General Relativity - my true passion is thermodynamics: Classical statistical mechanics is as geeky and weird - and much underappreciated.
