Fundamental physical constants: their role in physics and metrology and recommended values


The State Research Center of the Russian Federation ‘D.I. Mendeleyev All-Russian Institute for Metrology’, Moskovsky pr. 19, St. Petersburg, 190005, Russian Federation

A brief review on recent CODATA recommended values of the fundamental physical constants, based on data obtained by the end of 2002, is presented. Preceding the review is an analysis of the role that fundamental constants play in fundamental physics and practical measurements. In view of the increasing role of fundamental constants for the realization of the standards of units of physical quantities, some questions related to the International System of Units (SI) are also discussed.
