 German term or phrase: Zeigerformalismus Gibt es hier Physikkenner? Der Begriff Zeigerformalismus wird mit Feynman in Verbindung gebracht(siehe https://www.lernhelfer.de/schuelerlexikon/physik-abitur/arti... aber ich kann keine Übersetzungen finden. Ein Buch von Feynman habe ich auf meinem Tisch liegen, auf Englisch, und finde da nichts mit "formalism" oder "pointer". Vielleicht ist es auch gar kein "pointer" sondern "arrow"? In meinem zu übersetzendem Text heißt es "Das drehende Rad als Sinnbild für Frequenz, Amplitude und Phase einer Schwingung wird in der Fachliteratur auch Zeigerformalismus genannt."
