The concept of physical object in twentieth century's physical theories
(relativity and quanta) turns from intuitive-substantial to
formal-functional, that is to a relatively invariable properties system
well beyond the intuitive properties "carrier" typical of classical
physics (CP). Anyway, the autonomous heuristic fecundity of this formal
mathem...

The idea of exploiting a supposedly enhanced information content of superposition states in quantum computation seems to invalidate
the classical probabilistic definition of information; but this is not necessarily so.

It is known that there is no possibility of transmitting information without a certain amount of energy. This is arbitrarily small in Classical Physics, due to the continuous nature of the energy parameter, while one cannot reduce that amount below Planck's energy quanta in Quantum Physics. In short, one cannot send less than a photon from a place...

SUMMARY Galileo Ferraris (1847-1897), the most eminent Italian «electrician» in the last quarter of the XIX Century, is wrongly considered a pure technician who invented a new kind of electric induction motor. Instead, in introducing the new device, he also contributed, as a valuable mathematical physicist, to the deepening of Maxwell's electromagn...

The great influence exerted by Kantianism on 19th century physics can be firstly singled out in the process of mathematization which Kant fostered, in particular in Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science (from now on MF) (1786),1 requiring, since its Preface, that chemistry assumed, as a special kind of physics, mathematical clothes in order t...

In The Foundations of Quantum Mechanics - Historical Analysis and Open Questions, leading Italian researchers involved in different aspects of the foundations and history of quantum mechanics are brought together in an interdisciplinary debate. The book therefore presents an invaluable overview of the state of Italian work in the field at this mome...
