Stephen Wolfram the Founder and CEO of Wolfram Research creator of Mathematica Wolfram Alpha and the Wolfram Language author of A New Kind of Science

Stephen Wolfram is known for his work in computer science, mathematics, and in theoretical physics. He is the founder and CEO of the software company Wolfram Research where he worked as chief designer of Mathematica and the Wolfram Alpha answer engine. His recent work has been on knowledge-based programming, expanding and refining the Wolfram Language, which is the programming language of the mathematical symbolic computation program Mathematica.

In April of 2020, Wolfram announced the Wolfram Physics Project as an effort to reduce and explain all the laws of physics within a paradigm of a hypergraph that is transformed by minimal rewriting rules which obey the Church-Rosser property. The effort is a continuation of the ideas he originally described in A New Kind of Science. The foundational idea is the exploration of the emergent complexity of abstract rewriting systems (termed “substitution system” on Wolfram MathWorld), where the systems explored mainly lie at a minimalist extreme. Most examples come from a rewriting system on ordered graphs; some concepts are illustrated by examples pertaining to string rewriting systems. Many of the computational phenomena obtained in these systems bear analogy to Wolfram’s previous investigations into cellular automata. This newly introduced ordered-graph system lends itself to geometrical interpretation in a way that cellular automata did not, and it is mainly these geometrical interpretations that provide an entry point into analogy with physical law. Wolfram claims that “From an extremely simple model, we’re able to reproduce special relativity, general relativity and the core results of quantum mechanics”. Physicists are generally unimpressed with Wolfram’s claim, and state that Wolfram’s results are non-quantitative and arbitrary. Stephen Wolfram and Christopher Wolfram were involved in helping create the alien language for the film, for which they used the Wolfram Language.

Prof. Dierk Schroeder and Superhuman Magnetic Man Miroslaw Magola discuss Isaac Newton’s universal law of gravitation.

Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that every particle attracts every other particle in the universe with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by what Isaac Newton called inductive reasoning. It is a part of classical mechanics and was formulated in Newton’s work Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (“the Principia”), first published on 5 July 1687. When Newton presented Book 1 of the unpublished text in April 1686 to the Royal Society, Robert Hooke made a claim that Newton had obtained the inverse square law from him.

In today’s language, the law states that every point mass attracts every other point mass by a force acting along the line intersecting the two points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Newton’s law has since been superseded by Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, but it continues to be used as an excellent approximation of the effects of gravity in most applications. Relativity is required only when there is a need for extreme accuracy, or when dealing with very strong gravitational fields, such as those found near extremely massive and dense objects, or at very close distances (such as Mercury’s orbit around the Sun).
