# Robert Rosen ' s Interpretation of Anticipatory Systems

@inproceedings{Dubois2003RobertR, title={Robert Rosen ' s Interpretation of Anticipatory Systems}, author={Daniel M. Dubois and Daniel M. Dubois}, year={2003} }

An anticipatory system is a system which contains a model of itself and/or of its environment in view of computing its present state as a function of the prediction of the model. With the concepts of incursion and hyperincursion, anticipatory discrete systems can be modelled, simulated and controlled. By definition an incursion, an inclusive or implicit recursion, can be written as: x(t+1) = F [..., x(t-1), x(t), x(t+1),...] where the value of a variable x(t+1) at time t+1 is a function of this… Expand

Introduction of the Aristotle's Final Causation in CAST: Concept and Method of Incursion and Hyperincursion

- Mathematics, Computer Science
- EUROCAST
- 1995

The concept and method of incursion and hyperincursion firstly applied to the Fractal Machine, an hyperincursive cellular automata with sequential computations where time plays a central role and the Pearl-Verhulst chaotic map will be considered. Expand

Generation of fractals from incursive automata, digital diffusion and wave equation systems.

- Computer Science, Medicine
- Bio Systems
- 1997

Modelling tools for formal systems design in the fields of information and physical systems are described and it is shown that fractals can also be generated from digital diffusion and wave equations, that is to say from the modulo N of their finite difference equations with integer coefficients.

A Semantic Logic for CAST Related to Zuse, Deutsch and McCulloch and Pitts Computing Principles

- Computer Science
- EUROCAST
- 1995

It is shown that the exclusive OR can be modelled by a fractal non-linear equation and a new method to design digital equations is proposed to create McCulloch and Pitts formal neurons. Expand

A logical calculus of the ideas immanent in nervous activity

- Mathematics
- 1990

Because of the “all-or-none” character of nervous activity, neural events and the relations among them can be treated by means of propositional logic. It is found that the behavior of every net can… Expand

Fractal and chaotic dynamics in nervous systems

- Psychology, Medicine
- Progress in Neurobiology

It is found that chaos appears to play an integral, though not necessarily exclusive role in function at all levels of organization from the neurosystems to the molecular and quantum levels. Expand

Quantum Relativity: A Synthesis of the Ideas of Einstein and Heisenberg

- Physics
- 1997

Standard Boolean logic is based on ideas taken from classical, first-order set theory. The first-order logic of quantum mechanics introduced by von Neumann is not a classical one. It is therefore… Expand

Zeno's paradox in quantum cellular automata

- Mathematics
- 1991

Abstract The effect of Zeno's paradox in quantum theory is demonstrated with the aid of quantum mechanical cellular automata. It is shown that the degree of non-unitarity of the cellular automaton… Expand
