abstract

Logical reloading is a replacement of one system of basic concepts inside a physical conception by another equivalent system of basic concepts. The logical reloading does not change the conception. However, a generalization of the conception at different equivalent systems of basic concepts (axioms) leads, in general, to different results. In particular, at transition from a nonrelativistic conception to corresponding relativistic conception it is very important to use adequate basic concepts. In the paper one considers problems connected with a use of inadequate basic concepts in statistical description of stochastic particle motion.
