In this paper I draw on Einstein's distinction between "principle" and "constructive" theories to isolate two levels of physical theory that can be found in both classical and (special) relativistic physics. I then argue that when we focus on theoretical explanations in physics, i.e. explanations of physical laws, the two leading views on explanation,… (More)

Interpretations of Einstein's equation differ primarily concerning whether E = mc 2 entails that mass and energy are the same property of physical systems, and hence whether there is any sense in which mass is ever 'converted' into energy (or vice versa). In this paper, I examine six interpretations of Einstein's equation and argue that all but one fail to… (More)

Einstein's 1935 derivation of mass—energy equivalence is philosophically impor tant because it contains both a criticism of purported demonstrations that proceed by analogy and strong motivations for the definitions of the 'new' dynamical quantities (viz relativistic momentum, relativistic kinetic energy and relativistic energy). In this paper, I argue… (More)

The identification of pollen in an automated way will accelerate different tasks and applications of palynology to aid in, among others, climate change studies, medical allergies calendar, and forensic science. The aim of this paper is to develop a system that automatically captures a hundred microscopic images of pollen and classifies them into the 12… (More)

Klebsiella pneu-moniae. Intermittent fever coincident with the worsening of diarrhea or thrush lesions. Sepsis in one opportunity. Poor weight gain. We requested some procedures. ANALYSIS: Gain-of-function human STAT1 mutation. Diagnosis: Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis associated with STAT1 mutation. Conclusions: Susceptibility to Candida sp has been… (More)

W adys aw Krajewski and I would have agreed on many things concerning Einstein's l l equation, E = mc 2. Beyond the agreements that he lists (Krajewski 2006), I agree that in the case of photon emission, there is no conversion of mass into energy. I can agree to this because the core of the different-properties, conversion view is that while special rela… (More)

Herein, in the context of third version of nonextensive statistical mechanics, a theory that generalizes the Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon's statistics, we display a solution for an anomaly found by calculating the internal energy for a composite A + B, of 2 spines 1 / 2 , with additive Hamiltonian H = H A + H B. Specifically, the calculations of the internal… (More)
