Project Title

Axioms of Calculus and Mechanics

Project Summary

We present axioms of calculus that unify the discrete and the smooth continuum with applications to fractals, soap films, charged particles, and smooth manifolds. Properties that follow from the axioms include broad generalizations of the integral theorems of calculus that are equally valid for the above domains. A goal for the period of this grant is to establish similar axioms of mechanics that unify the quantum and classical viewpoints.
