**Statement of the hypothesis**

Physical phenomena are

apprehended by curves. The physical systems studied are either

naturally stable or naturally unstable. Thus the 2 types of reactions

can be observed:

a- either the system tends towards a new state of equilibrium, it is

naturally stable.

b- or the system tends towards a drift, it is naturally unstable.

Each factor which influences a naturally stable system does it through

an integration according to the time factor f(t).Each f(t) integration

can be shown by measuring time in an exponential way.Therefore it is

possible to identify the number of factors influencing a physical

phenomenon.Each factor is identified by a sizeless number named Jo and

can be recognized.The law for a factor on a stable physical phenomenon

is as follows:Y(t)=k(l-e(-t/jo) )

Y being the value measured, the physical phenomenon under study

K being the equilibrium value (plateau)

T being the time measured

Jo being the value representing the curve

Each factor which makes the system unstable does it up to a limit value.

The law for a factor on an unstable physical phenomenon may be written

as follows:Either y = kt

Or y(t) = jo e(-t/jo)+ t-jo

Or y(t) = ke-at

C - General method of application of the hypothesis

To avoid the influence of the other factors and to make up for the

errors due to measurement, take two dots on the tangent which has led

to the experimental curve yl,y2.Yl =k(l-ee ((-tl/jo) and y2 = k(l-e

(-t2/jo)With yl,,, y2,, tll,t2 knownThis leads to k = yl/((l-e (-tl/jo)

) = y2/(l-e (-t2/jo)

Hence the value of jo

A theoretical curve is plotted with k and jo

a- If the curve is identical to the experimental curve, it can be said

that a single factor, characterized by jo, influences the curve.

b- If the curve is different, at the first point of divergence of the 2

curves, it is necessary to reproduce the operation including y (t) =

k((l-e (-t/jol)) (l-e (-t/jo2)).With k(l-e(-t/jol) value found in a.The

operation is repeated as many times as needed to get an experimental

curve similar to the theoretical curve.

Thanks to a copy to scale, it is possible to find out if one factor or

several play a rôle in the system.

It is possible to design a software which will determine the number and

the characteristic ofthe factors involved in the experimental system.

Indeed, each action which modifies a system will be spotted by a

dimensionless number named jo and will easily be identified in the

course of the analysis of other systems.
