Originating from nuclear physics, “Critical Mass” represents key thresholds across disciplines, encompassing economic viability, societal trends, and biological sustainability, signifying transformative junctures.
Hysteresis describes systems where the current state is shaped by both past and present influences. Notable for its path dependence and non-linearity, the concept is particularly relevant in disciplines such as material science, engineering, and economics.
Addressing the challenge of infinities in quantum calculations, renormalization refines initial parameters to ensure tangible results. It traces its origins to quantum electrodynamics and underpins the success and accuracy of the Standard Model in particle physics.
