On the other hand, reliability is the central concern of formal learning theory. In this paper we investigate the belief revision(More)
Demographic change affects the health system in many countries. Heart failure is used as an example in demonstrating the effects of these changing demographics. We analyzed trends for demographic change and their effects on heart failure and its costs over the period 1995–2025. Changing demographics are associated with higher treatment costs.

Digital techniques of serious games and online social networks are therefore becoming increasingly popular in today’s educational system. This thesis contributes to the proposition that combining elements of social networks(More)
As an undergraduate student majoring in mathematics, philosophy and physics I was interested in foundational questions regarding probability and induction. Combining this interest with an interest in mathematical logic, I planned to work as a graduate student on a thesis devoted to probabilities in the context of formal languages. Abraham Robinson, who was(More)
