comment Is there any physics that cannot be expressed in terms of Lagrange equations?
It is true that in introductory classes to classical mechanics usually only systems with energy conservation are considered. But it is possible to extend the framework to systems with dissipation, see e.g. Brogliato et. alt., “Dissipative Systems, Analysis and Control”, Springer, 2nd edition.

comment Lattice QCD and string theory
Too bad, I heard this claim I'mn asking about from several anonymous posters at different blogs...are there sources of confusion I should try to clarify by explaining/reformulating my question?

comment Lattice QCD and string theory
Ok, I'll try to narrow the question to be just about improving Monte-Carlo simulations of lattice QCD models, is that precise enough?

comment Can a single classical particle have any entropy?
How is this related to the question? The point is that a single classical particle has a deterministic equation of motion and at all times occupies a well defined point in the state space.

comment How did “no prior geometry” father 50 years of confusion?
Funny :-) I should specialize to theoretical physicists which I was implicitly thinking about: Every theoretical physicist has to learn differential forms!

comment How did “no prior geometry” father 50 years of confusion?
Thanks for the correction - I should have looked it up myself :-) I think it is safe to say that most physicists did not learn about differential forms even in the 1950ties...
