FEMLAB as a general tool to investigate the basic laws of physicsBräuer, K.

The common basis of physical laws is the continuity of the action field. It implies Structural mechanics, Hydrodynamics, Quantum mechanics, Electrodynamics and the self-organisation of matter. A general tool to investigate all the basic equations is FEMLAB. In academic training it allows to take the concentration away from the manifold of mathematical methods of solutions and draw it to the real physical questions. Both aspects together allow a new holistic insight into physics.
I try to represent here the rough idea of this course.
