|In the past, scientists like Isaac Newton thought that by developing field of science, which we know as physics, they were discovering the rules by which this world works. Their success was further improved by relativistic models and later by stochastic rather than analytical models. I argue that all analytical models which we create, even today, are doomed to be outdated eventually, because the nature of the world itself is stochastic and our attempts to analytically describe it are merely an approximation of reality. To some this may seem like a futile effort, since any analytical work we do today will be outdated tomorrow, but I prefer to see it as an endless journey into the unknown.
|It is only by use of analytical and stochastic models together that we will be able to always solve the real world problems.
