Unpredictability and Computational Irreducibility
TLDR
It is proved that, through a robust definition of what means “to be unable to compute the n th step without having to follow the same path than simulating the automaton”, this implies genuinely that if the behavior of an object is computationally irreducible, no computation of its n th state can be faster than the simulation itself.

TLDR
This work introduces a new concept: the computational analogy, and proves some properties of the functions used, which allows partitioning the set of computable functions in classes whose members have the same properties regarding their CIR and their computational complexity.
The Measurement Problem: Decoherence and Convivial Solipsism
TLDR
This paper examines the arguments that have been given for and against both interpretations and defends a new position, the “Convivial Solipsism”, according to which the outcome that is observed is relative to the observer, different but in close parallel to the Everett's interpretation and sharing also some similarities with Rovelli's relational interpretation and Quantum Bayesianism.
Nonlocality Versus Modified Realism
A large number of physicists now admit that quantum mechanics is a non-local theory. The EPR argument and the many experiments (including recent “loop-hole free” tests) showing the violation of
Type indeterminacy - A Model of the KT(Khaneman Tversky)- Man
In this paper, we propose to use elements of the mathematical formalism of Quantum Mechanics to capture the idea that agents' preferences, in addition to being typically uncertain, can also be
Abductive Logics in a Belief Revision Framework
TLDR
The paper surveys four known schemes for abduction according to a common semantic framework based on belief revision and presents semantic and axiomatic arguments in favor of one of these schemes, “ordered abduction,” which has never been vindicated in the literature.
Delayed choice, complementarity, entanglement and measurement
It is well known that Wheeler proposed several delayed choice experiments in order to show the impossibility to speak of the way a quantum system behaves before being detected. In a double-slit
Type Indeterminacy-A Model of the KT-man ( Kahneman Tversky )
In this note we propose to use the mathematical formalism of Quantum Mechanics to capture the idea that agents’ preferences, in addition to being typically uncertain, can also be indeterminate. They
The Concept of Emergence
Complex systems are omnipresent. Everywhere in the real world we can see them. First of all in biology, a living cell, the genetic system, the brain are complex systems. But there are lots of complex
