A Minkowski type duality mediating between state and predicate transformer semantics for a probabilistic nondeterministic language

K. Keimel, A. Rosenbusch, T. Streicher
2009 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
Thus Minkowski duality is the mathematical principle from which the correspondence between state and predicate transformer semantics follows for nondeterministic probabilistic languages like L p .  ...  Morgan in [MMa,MMb,MM] together with a state transformer and a predicate transformer semantics associating with every program P a state transformer [[P ] ] : S → P U V(S) and a predicate transformer  ...

2007 Randomness and Complexity, From Leibniz to Chaitin  
In fact, Chaitin was interested in the relation between computation and quantum physics since the early 1960s; he even wrote an APL2 course outline for 3 During the research for my book [1]  ...  5 The main contribution shared by AIT founding fathers in the mid 1960s was the new type of complexity-which is invariant up to an additive constant-and, with it, a new way to reason about computation.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank their institutions for support.

Editorial NQ
2007 NeuroQuantology  
A relation between consciousness and quantum effects has been pondered for nearly a century, and in the past decades quantum processes in the brain have been invoked as explanations for consciousness and  ...  Critics deride this comparison as a mere "minimization of mysteries" and quickly point out that the brain is too warm for quantum computation which in the technological realm requires extreme cold to avoid  ...  The [corpuscle (C) -wave (W)] duality is a result of quantum beats between the 'actual' and 'complementary' states of sub-elementary fermions/antifermions.  ...

The usual practice of IJ ITA and IJ ITK are to support several conferences at which the papers may be discussed before submitting them for referring and publishing in the journals.  ...  The aim of the conference is to be one more possibility for contacts for scientists.  ...  We propose a strategy for developing language independent machine emotion recognition, related to the identification of language independent speech features and to the use of additional information from  ...
