In 1937 the query of a potential temporal edition of the basic constants used to be raised by way of Paul Dirac in his "large quantity hypothesis." this present day it sounds as if within the context of the quest for a unified concept of the elemental interactions. It touches either primary and utilized physics, because the postulated unalterability of the constants is the root for contemporary metrology. The publication provides reports written via best specialists within the box. Focussing at the query of diversifications of the elemental "constants" in time or area, the chapters disguise the theoretical framework during which adaptations are anticipated and the hunt for diversifications of amounts akin to the fine-structure consistent, the electron/proton mass ratio, g-factors of proton and neutron and so forth. in astrophysical and geophysical observations and in precision experiments with atomic clocks and frequency standards.
