Title:Leniewski's Systems of Logic and Foundations of Mathematics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rafal Urbaniak
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This meticulous critical assessment of the ground-breaking work of philosopher Stanislaw Leniewski focuses exclusively on primary texts and explores the full range of output by one of the master logicians of the Lvov-Warsawschool. The authors nuanced survey eschews secondary commentary, analyzing Leniewski's core philosophical views and evaluating the formulations that were to have such a profound influence on the evolution of mathematical logic. One of the undisputed leaders of the cohort of brillia nt logicians that congregated in Poland in the early twentieth century, Leniewski was a guide and mentor to a generation of celebrated analytical philosophers (Alfred Tarski washis PhD student). His primary achievement was a system of foundational mathema tical logic intended as an alternative to the Principia Mathematica of Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell. Its three strandsprotothetic,ontology, and mereology, are detailed in discrete sections of this volume, alongside a wealth other chapters g rouped to provide the fullest possible coverage of Leniewskis academic output. With material on his earlyphilosophical views, his contributions to set theory and his work on nominalism and higher-order quantification, this book offers a uniquely expansive critical commentary on one of analytical philosophys great pioneers

Title:Rational Reconstructions of Modern Physics [electronic resource]

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Newtons classical physics and its underlying ontology are loaded with several metaphysical hypotheses that cannot be justified by rational reasoning nor by experimental evidence. Furthermore, it is well known that some ofthese hypotheses are not cont ained in the great theories of Modern Physics, such as the theory of Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. This book shows that, on the basis of Newtons classical physics and by rationalreconstruction, the theory of Special Relativity as well as Quant um Mechanics can be obtained by partly eliminating or attenuating the metaphysical hypotheses. Moreover, it is shown that these reconstructions do not require additionalhypotheses or new experimental results. In the second edition the rational reconstruct ions are completed with respect to General Relativity and Cosmology. In addition, the statistics of quantum objects is elaborated in more detail withrespect to the rational reconstruction of quantum mechanics. The new material completes the approach of th e book as much as it is possible at the present state of knowledge. Presumably, the most important contribution that is added tothe second edition refers to the problem of interpretation of the three great theories of Modern Physics. It is shown in detail that in the light of rational reconstructions even realistic interpretations of the three theories ofModern Physics are possible and can easily be achieved

Title:Gravitation as a Plastic Distortion of the Lorentz Vacuum [electronic resource]

Waldyr A Rodrigues
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Addressing graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics, this book presents a new formulation of the theory of gravity. In the new approach the gravitational field has the same ontology as theelectromagnetic, strong, and w eak fields. In other words it is a physical field living in Minkowski spacetime. Some necessary new mathematical concepts are introduced and carefully explained. Then they are used to describe thedeformation of geometries, the key to describing the gravit ational field as a plastic deformation of the Lorentz vacuum. It emerges after further analysis that the theory provides trustworthy energy-momentum and angular momentumconservation laws, a feature that is normally lacking in General Relativity

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The period in the foundations of mathematics that started in 1879 with the publication of Frege's Begriffsschrift and ended in 1931 with Gdel's ber formal unentscheidbare Stze der Principia Mathematica und verwandterSysteme I can reasonably be called the classical period. It saw the development of three major foundational programmes: the logicism of Frege, Russell and Whitehead, the intuitionism of Brouwer, and Hilbert's formalist andproof-theoretic programme. In this period, there were also lively e xchanges between the various schools culminating in the famous Hilbert-Brouwer controversy in the 1920s. The purpose of this anthology is to review the programmes inthe foundations of mathematics from the classical period and to assess their possible rele vance for contemporary philosophy of mathematics. What can we say, in retrospect, about the various foundational programmes of the classicalperiod and the disputes that took place between them? To what extent do the classical programmes of logicism, intui tionism and formalism represent options that are still alive today? These questions are addressed in this volume byleading mathematical logicians and philosophers of mathematics. The volume will be of interest primarily to researchers and graduate student s of philosophy, logic, mathematics and theoretical computer science. The material will beaccessible to specialists in these areas and to advanced graduate students in the respective fields

Title:Mindful Universe [electronic resource] : Quantum Mechanics and the Participating Observer
Author(s): Henry P Stapp
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The classical mechanistic idea of nature that prevailed in science during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was an essentially mindless conception: the physically described aspects of nature were asserted to be completelydetermined by prior phy sically described aspects alone, with our conscious experiences entering only passively. During the twentieth century the classical concepts were found to be inadequate. In the new theory, quantum mechanics, ourconscious experiences enter into the dynamic s in specified ways not fixed by the physically described aspects alone. Consequences of this radical change in our understanding of the connection between mind and brain are described.Stapp's book is a bold and original attack on the problem of conscious ness and free will based on the openings provided by the laws of quantum mechanics. This is a serious and interesting attack on a truly fundamental problem. TonyLeggett [Physics Nobel Laureate, 2003] Stapp's wide-ranging proposal offers stimulating readin g, a strong sense of conceptual coherence and intuitive appeal, and empirical predictions that deserve to be refined and tested.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume celebrates the first decade of the Computer Algebra system Magma. With a design based on the ontology and semantics of algebra, Magma enables users to rapidly formulate and perform calculations in the more abstractparts of mathematics. Th is book introduces the reader to the role Magma plays in advanced mathematical research through 14 case studies which, in most cases, describe computations underpinning new theoretical results. The authors ofthe chapters were chosen both for their experti se in the particular field and for their innovative use of Magma. Although by no means exhaustive, the topics range over much of Magma's coverage of algorithmic algebra: from number theoryand algebraic geometry, via representation theory and group theory to some branches of discrete mathematics and graph theory. A basic introduction to the Magma language is given in an appendix. The book is simultaneously an invitationto learn a new programming language in the context of contemporary research problems, an d an exposition of the types of problem that can be investigated using computational algebra

Note:The rapid growth in electronic systems in the past decade has boosted research in the area of computational intelligence. As it has become increasingly easy to generate, collect, transport, process, and store huge amounts of data,the role of intellig ent algorithms has become prominent in order to visualize, manipulate, retrieve, and interpret the data. For instance, intelligent search techniques have been developed to search for relevant items in hugecollections of web pages, and data mining and inte rpretation techniques play a very important role in making sense out of huge amounts of biomolecular measurements. As a result, the added value of many modern systems is no longerdetermined by hardware only, but increasingly by the intelligent software th at supports and facilitates the user in realizing his or her objectives. This book is the outcome of a series of discussions at the Philips Symposium onIntelligent Algorithms, which was held in Eindhoven in December 2004. It contains many exciting and pra ctical examples of the use of intelligent algorithms in the areas of ambient and biomedical computing. It contains topics such asbioscience computing, database design, machine consciousness, scheduling, video summarization, audio classification, semantic reasoning, machine learning, tracking & localization, secure computing, and communication
