Action Theory Evolution [article]

Ivan Varzinczak
2008 arXiv   pre-print
Finally we state postulates for action theory contraction and assess the behavior of our operators w.r.t. them.  ...  Like any other logical theory, domain descriptions in reasoning about actions may evolve, and thus need revision methods to adequately accommodate new information about the behavior of actions.  ...  This is a new law that she should incorporate to her knowledge base at some stage of her action theory evolution.  ...

Principle of Least Action and Theory of Cyclic Evolution [article]

Atanu Bikash Chatterjee
2011 arXiv   pre-print
Co-existence of the system in states of maximum organization as well as maximum action forms the core idea of the paper. Major influences have been drawn from the Principle of Least Action.  ...  Organization is a progressive change, while evolution is expressed in the effects of accumulating marks acquired from contingent encounters.  ...  Evolution of a system towards a greater state of organization is a coherent action of the organization of each system elements towards their optimal states of organization 8 .  ...

Evolution in games with a continuous action space

Matthijs van Veelen, Peter Spreij
2008 Economic Theory  
Allowing for games with a continuous action space, we investigate how evolutionary stability, the existence of a uniform invasion barrier, local superiority and asymptotic stability relate to each other  ...  An important part of the theory for games with a finite action space consists of connecting static properties that a strategy can have-such as evolutionary stability, the existence of a uniform invasion  ...  Fig. 1 Fig. 2 12 Finite Continuous action space A continuous action space breaks up a few of those links as we will see just now.  ...

The Origin and Evolution of Life, on the Theory of the Action, Reaction and Interaction of Energy

R. S. Lillie
1918 Science  
The factors of evolution are thus various and are classified by the author under four chief heads: (1) action of the inorganic environment, (2) of the organism itself, (3) of the germinal substance of  ...  Paleontological research indicates that variations in the germ can be referred only partly, if at all, to the direct action of the environment upon the entire organism; thus rapid evolution may take place  ...

Bioinformatic Detection of Positive Selection Pressure in Plant Pathogens: The Neutral Theory of Molecular Sequence Evolution in Action

Mark C. Derbyshire
2020 Frontiers in Microbiology  
Furthermore, evolution of total host resistance to most isolates can force rapid evolutionary changes in host-specific pathogens.  ...  In this review, I briefly describe some of the more widely used tests of positive selection and the theory underlying them.  ...  It was in this time that one of the founding theories of modern genetics was developed by Motoo Kimura in 1968 : the neutral theory of molecular evolution (Kimura, 1968) .  ...

Can Evolutionary Game Theory Evolve in Sociology? :

Yoshimichi SATO
2003 Riron to hoho  
Finally, I point out that a limitation of evolutionary game theory in the study of evolution of the division of labor as social order is that it assumes a finite set of possible actions, while evolution  ...  In this paper I argue that evolutionary game theory is a good tool with which we study evolution of certain types of social order, but that it has a limitation when we apply it to the study of evolution  ...  Thus evolutionary game theory has to prove that a good theory on evolution of social order is to be built with it in order to show the possibility of its evolution in sociology.  ...
