Asymptotic Logical Uncertainty and The Benford Test [article]

Scott Garrabrant, Siddharth Bhaskar, Abram Demski, Joanna Garrabrant, George Koleszarik, Evan Lloyd
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We give an algorithm A which assigns probabilities to logical sentences.  ...  For any simple infinite sequence of sentences whose truth-values appear indistinguishable from a biased coin that outputs "true" with probability p, we have that the sequence of probabilities that A assigns  ...  In contrast, logical uncertainty deals with uncertainty about logic.  ...

2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We give an algorithm AL,T which assigns probabilities to logical sentences.  ...  In contrast, logical uncertainty deals with uncertainty about logic.  ...  In this paper, we take a different approach, which we call asymptotic logical uncertainty. We require that M (N ) be computable and have runtime bounded by some function of N .  ...

Speculative Physics: the Ontology of Theory and Experiment in High Energy Particle Physics and Science Fiction [article]

Clarissa Ai Ling Lee
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The works of science fiction examined here demonstrate the tension between the internal values of physics in the practice of theory and experiment and questions on ethics, culture, and morality.  ...  for instigating more rigorous and intense cross-disciplinary interrogations between the sciences and the humanities.  ...  As he rightly argues, the underdetermined undecideability and constraints of logic mean that the empirical uncertainty in data may never be adequately resolved.  ...

Gamma Ray Bursts as Electromagnetic Outflows [article]

Maxim Lyutikov Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics, Cosmology)
2003 arXiv   pre-print
After the bubble breaks out from the stellar surface and most of the electron-positron pairs annihilate, the bubble expansion becomes highly relativistic.  ...  Current-driven instabilities develop in this shell at a radius ∼3×10^16 cm and lead to dissipation of magnetic field and acceleration of pairs which are responsible for the γ-ray burst.  ...  Several natural correlations between the prompt GRB polarization and other parameters follow from the model and can be tested with future observations.  ...

A Bayesian Reappraisal of Australian Crustal Heat Flow and Temperature [article]

Marcus Haynes, University, The Australian National
2021
The quantification of uncertainty distributions on geothermal data sets provides the means to calculate the degree with which a given earth model is consistent with available geothermal data.  ...  This is supported by a new framework for assessing the uncertainties inherent in bottom-hole temperature measurements, enabling us to leverage vast industrial data sets to model crustal thermal fields.  ...  I also examine the uncertainties associated with the inferred solutions, and how these can be estimated from the input data uncertainties.  ...
