Attempt of modelling the Technnological Acceleration


  • Ajeddi, Majid


In this paper, we study the technological acceleration whithin a new frame work wich extends models used in the literature. The objective of our research is then to construct a global model of evaluation of the technological acceleration by two methods of physical science. Firstly, we will try to formulate the equation of propagation of the technological acceleration and to find out the variable upon which it depends by drawing our inspiration from the model of undulatory physics. Secondly, we will borrow the model of dynamic physics (kinematics and Newtonian dynamics) in order to be clarified on the evaluation and measure of the technological acceleration. Kinematics and Newtonian dynamics will serve to quantify the technological advance of an industry or of a country which will make it possible to inform the decision makers about the state of health of their technology and to guide them in their ulterior strategic choices.
