|Analogy: formal parallelism. Intends show that from a similar case, similar conclusions can be drawn._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Analogies/Physics/Electricity/Mechanics: Suppose we wanted to study the behavior of a complex system of several interrelated springs: then it is most practical to build a corresponding electric circuit to simulate the system. Instead of replacing the springs by strength, current and other levels can be regulated more easily. (>Analog computer, >simulation).
Analogy/Aanalog/Theory/Principle of the Shortest Time/Fermat/Identity/Physics/Feynman: apparently, the statement of the shortest time and the statement that angles are equal in reflection, and that the sinuses of the angles are proportional at refraction, are the same._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
