Almost-certain eventualities and abstract probabilities in the quantitative temporal logic qTL

Annabelle McIver, Carroll Morgan
2003 Theoretical Computer Science  
'Abstract probabilities' in transition systems are those known only to be bounded away from zero and one. ) showed that almost-certain properties in linear temporal logic depend only on abstract probabilities  ...  The aim is to provide a simpler calculus than the full logic, one that is in a certain sense complete for proving almost-certain eventualities from abstract-probabilistic assumptions.  ...  In the sequel we show that in qTL, at least for ÿnite state spaces, the truth of almost-certain eventualities depends only on abstract probabilities, never on their precise values; and we show how to specialise  ...

Morphological Evolution Repeatedly Caused by Mutations in Signaling Ligand Genes [chapter]

Arnaud Martin, Virginie Courtier-Orgogozo
2017 Diversity and Evolution of Butterfly Wing Patterns  
Secreted signaling molecules (syn. ligands) can induce cells to switch states and thus largely contribute to the emergence of complex forms in multicellular organisms.  ...  Finally, in butterflies, a total of 18 allelic variants of the WntA Wnt-family ligand cause color pattern adaptations related to wing mimicry, both within and between species.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Toshio Sekimura, Fred Nijhout, and the Chubu University (Japan) for organizing the 2016 conference and stimulating the writing of this review, and Takao Suzuki and Shigeyuki Koshikawa  ...

2011 Postharvest Biology and Technology  
In postharvest, fresh harvested food crops can be considered isolated small scale systems.  ...  Ultimately, to fully understand postharvest phenomena, a systemic approach that links genetic and environmental responses and identifies the underlying biological networks is required.  ...  A wide range of approaches exists to model genetic regulatory systems ranging from probabilistic via Boolean, rule based and logical techniques to quantitative differential equations, either or not spatially  ...
