Physical Principles versus Mathematical Rigor.
Patterson, Jim
Physics Teacher, v38 n4 p214 Apr 2000
While it is most often the case that an understanding of physics can simplify mathematical calculations, occasionally mathematical precision leads directly to a better physical understanding of a situation.
