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.Expand

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.Expand

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.Expand

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… Expand

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… Expand

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.Expand

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… Expand

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… Expand

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… Expand
