We develop machinery enabling us to show that suitable G-spaces, including the equivariant version of BF , are equivariant infinite loop spaces. This involves a "recognition principle" for systems of spaces which behave formally like the system of fixed sets of a G-space; that is, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for such a system to be… (More)

Biological systems frequently need to solve many computationally hard decision and optimization problems. The solution of these problems by digital computers as presently understood requires exponentially large energy dissipation. This severely restricts the ability of digital computers to attack such problems. We shall show that only polynomial dissipation… (More)

Biological systems routinely solve problems involving pattern recognition and feature extraction. Such problems do not appear to admit similarly routine algorithmic solutions; the power of biological systems in this regard apparently arises from nonalgorithmic dynamics. It is our intention to explore, and to develop principles of, functional characteristics… (More)

We give a long overdue theory of orientations of G-vector bundles, topological G-bundles, and spherical G-fibrations, where G is a compact Lie group. The notion of equivariant orientability is clear and unambiguous, but it is surprisingly difficult to obtain a satisfactory notion of an equivariant orientation such that every orientable G-vector bundle… (More)

Bibliography 109 iii Introduction Poincaré duality lies at the heart of the homological theory of manifolds. In the presence of the action of a group it is well-known that Poincaré duality fails to hold in ordinary, integer-graded (Bredon-Illman) equivariant homology. (See [Bre67] and [Ill75] for the construction of these homology theories; see [DR88] and… (More)

The observation is made that various forms of evolutionary learning systems and classical evolutionary processes can be formally described as hierarchical systems of Markov processes. This leads to a simplification of issues such as convergence criteria and limiting behavior of such systems. The hierarchical structures in question are derived from the… (More)

We propose an automata-theoretical framework for structured hierarchical control, in terms of rules and meta-rules, for sequences of moves on a graph. This leads to a notion of a "universal" hierarchically structured automaton mu which can move on a given graph in such a way as to emulate any automaton which moves on that graph in response to inputs. This… (More)
