This question also applies to super-symmetry.

Thanks!

In summary: The mathematical symmetry of the equations is a result of the fundamental principles of QM, not some sort of "accidental" property.

Fredrik said:That subject isn't very easy, but this post might be useful. It could at least help you understand what a symmetry is. Chapter 2 of Weinberg's QFT book is also a pretty good place to learn about symmetries.

Thanks a ton!

You need to understand what symmetry means in classical physics first. Try to read post #10 in

then go on and read the other posts in that thread.

My question now becomes, what is the reasoning that the the QM equations are symmetrical to nature, apart from statistical proof from experiments? Isn't it going a bit far to say that these equations are 100% exact to nature? This would necessitate infinite precision.

I ask this from a mathematical standpoint, not an ontological one.

"Lost in Symmetry and Super Symmetry" is a topic in physics that explores the fundamental principles of symmetry in nature and its relationship to the concept of super symmetry. Super symmetry is a theoretical framework that suggests there is a symmetry between particles with different spin states.

Symmetry is important in physics because it helps us understand the fundamental laws and principles that govern the behavior of particles and systems. It allows us to make predictions and calculations about the behavior of particles based on their symmetrical properties.

The main difference between symmetry and super symmetry is that while symmetry refers to the balance and regularity of physical systems, super symmetry is a theoretical concept that suggests there is an underlying symmetry between particles with different properties.

Super symmetry has not yet been proven experimentally, but if it does exist, it could have significant implications for our understanding of the universe. It could help explain the hierarchy of particle masses, provide a candidate for dark matter, and unify the fundamental forces of nature.

Scientists are currently studying and testing the concept of super symmetry through experiments at particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider. They are also using mathematical models and simulations to explore the implications and predictions of super symmetry in different scenarios.
