|Idealization: idealization is a simplification of theories for the purpose of generalization. A) Before starting an investigation in physics, e.g. the assumption of a mass point, i.e. a practical impossibility, which, however, simplifies the calculation and delivers correct results. B) Subsequently, for example, the smoothing of the course of a curve of measured values. See also Theories, measurements. _____________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. |

Riemann/d'Abro: Riemann wanted to solve a certain problem of his function theory with respect to a closed curve, and simplified the curve to a circle. Thus the solution was relatively easy. If we forget, however, that the proof contains a transformation, we will probably not be able to comprehend it._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
