Laws III 59
Laws / Physics / scalar quantities / scalar / temperature / Field: physical laws for scalar variables are often formulated as laws on a scalar T, that maps the quadruple of real numbers (space-time localization) to real numbers (e.g. temperature) - function T: (scalar) then has the form T = y  ° f - 1. several space points mapped to a point on the scale - f -1: inverse of the function: (archetype instead of image): because it is processed twice: the second time backwards) - f (x): x coordinates of in space - f -1 (x): images of the coordinates on the line R).
