A Nate on Dynamics and Kinematics *

  title={A Nate on Dynamics and Kinematics *},
  author={Geoffrey P. Bingham},
At the Fourth International Conference on Event Perception and Action in Trieste this past summer. Karl Newell. Bruce Kay. and I had a brief discussion in which we agreed upon a need for clarification of the meaning and use of the term "dynamic." The concern was that there may be some confusion because "dynamic" is used in nontechnical parlance to denote activity or change. In this usage. "dynamic" connotes motion. However. the technical use of the term in mechanics contrasts "dynamic" with… Expand
Spooky Action at a Temporal Distance
The origins of the assumption of temporal locality are investigated, arguing that it has arisen for historical and pragmatic reasons rather than good scientific ones, then it is explained why temporal locality is in tension with relativity and some recent results which cast doubt on its validity.

Task-specific devices and the perceptual bottleneck☆
An approach to the problem of organization in human action is presented and nonlinear properties of four subsystems of the human action system are described, which lead to the perceptual bottleneck. Expand
The Science of Mechanics: a Critical and Historical Account of its Development
MACH completed the first edition of “The Science of Mechanics” at Prague in 1883. An English translation (by McCormack) appeared just ten years later, and of this two further editions embodying theExpand

Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, and Linear Algebra
This book is about dynamical aspects of ordinary differential equations and the relations between dynamical systems and certain fields outside pure mathematics. A prominent role is played by theExpand
