The purpose of this booklet is to debate the current scenario of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms related to greater order derivatives. The achievements of differential geometry in formulating a extra glossy and strong therapy of those theories is defined and an in depth evaluation of the improvement of those theories in classical language can be given.

It was only when the rule was transplanted from the original spectroscopic context onto the domain of the rising quantum mechanics that Pauli Verbot acquired a new significance. It became the manifestation of the antisymmetric character of the state function of an assembly of indistinguishable particles. The ‘prohibition rule’ became the exclusion principle. In his pioneering 1926 contribution, Dirac referred to it as Pauli’s exclusion principle; and it was more than a terminological baptism. It was indeed the reformulation in terms of Fermi–Dirac statistics that allowed Pauli’s rule to transcend its humble origins in atomic spectroscopy and extend its range of nomological applicability.

Hans Reichenbach’s conclusion was that the notion of a priori needed to be reconsidered in such a way that a Kantian kernel could be retained without the allure of non-revisability. 18 According to Reichenbach, the recent scientific developments had revoked the first meaning, but not the second. This was particularly evident in the case of what Reichenbach called axioms of coordination. They are nonempirical (and then non-synthetic) principles that coordinate the mathematical part of a scientific theory with the physical part of the theory.

1 Atomic spectra and the Bohr–Sommerfeld theory of atomic structure The existence of spectral lines had been known to scientists since the beginning of the nineteenth century when Wollaston and Fraunhofer first observed the dark absorption lines in the spectrum of the Sun. It took 35 36 2 The origins of the exclusion principle almost eighty years – the time necessary to improve the quality of technical instruments – to find an empirical law governing the line distribution in the hydrogen spectrum as observed in stars.
