Jumping to explanations versus jumping to conclusions

Ramón Pino-Pérez, Carlos Uzcátegui
1999 Artificial Intelligence  
The notion of an explanation is defined by saying that a formula γ (consistent with Σ) is an explanation of α if Σ ∪ {γ } α.  ...  and (ii) how close is abduction to reversed deduction? In the logic-based approach to abduction, the background theory is given by a consistent set of formulas Σ.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Jorge Lobo, M. Freund, D.

Infants' enumeration of actions: numerical discrimination and its signature limits

Justin N. Wood, Elizabeth S. Spelke
2005 Developmental Science  
In contrast, infants failed to discriminate two-versus four-jump sequences, suggesting that infants fail to form cardinal number representations of small numbers of actions.  ...  At 6 months, infants successfully discriminated four-versus eight-jump sequences, when the continuous variables of sequence duration, jump duration, jump rate, jump interval and duration, and extent of  ...  Grant HD23103 to Elizabeth S.

Methods 2,106 children (1076 boys, 1030 girls) aged 4 to 17 years performed five different motor tests for strength (pushups, standing long jump), coordination (backward balancing, jumping side-to-side  ...  Conclusions The present findings are similar to data collected at the beginning of the century, indicating that motor skills have hardly changed in recent years.  ...  A possible explanation is that TVwatching in itself is not detrimental to motor skills as long as it doesn't lead to a decrease in PA or a higher BMI.  ...

Computer simulation study of the Levy flight process

Mehrdad Ghaemi, Zahra Zabihinpour, Yazdan Asgari
2009 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
It is shown that the restriction of jump length to a maximum value (lm) affects the diffusion coefficient, even though it remains constant for lm greater than 1464.  ...  The results are also implied that the movement of a levy flight particle is similar to the case the particle moves in each time step with an average length of jumping .  ...  Conclusion Our results show that the restriction of jump length, limited number of samples, and the method of computation, i.e. using integers for r (an ordinary random walk algorithm) or using continuous  ...

When Utility Jumps: The Value of Having Cash in the Hand

Kurt W. Rotthoff, Bentley Coffey
2018 Theoretical Economics Letters  
Our driving assumption is that preferences over riskier outcomes discontinuously depart from preferences under certainty; a jump from no risk to some risk is fundamentally different from a movement of  ...  some risk to more risk.  ...  Conclusion Engaging in risky activities is inevitable. Virtually all decisions entail some level of risk; the ability to eliminate all risk is relatively rare and hence very valuable.  ...

Phase specific changes in the countermovement jump occur without change in peak metrics following training

2021 The Journal of Sport and Exercise Science  
The countermovement jump (CMJ) is routinely used to assess changes in strength-power qualities. Common measures derived from this test include jump height, peak power and peak velocity.  ...  The objective of this investigation was to determine whether significant performance changes can occur in the CMJ in the absence of changes in jump height or peak-form metrics.  ...  A limitation of this single cohort study design was the inability to identify how CMJ phases are altered following mixed versus single modality resistance training.  ...

Simplified Biomechanics for a Possible Explanation of the Ancient Greek Long Jump Using Halteres

Christopher Provatidis
2013 Universal Journal of Engineering Science  
In this paper closed form analytical expressions were derived in order to simulate the possible action of "halteres" used in the ancient Greek long jump.  ...  Particular attention is paid on the initial position and the direction of arms' rotation as well as on the role of the amount of masses due to the "halteres".  ...  In conclusion, when the halteres are rotating forwards (in the clockwise direction) they always contribute to produce jump lengths higher than the reference value of L = 6.7278 m (horizontal black line  ...

Increased Resistance during Jump Exercise Does Not Enhance Cortical Bone Formation

2014 Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise  
CONCLUSION-These data demonstrate that jump training with minimal loading is equally, and sometimes more, effective at augmenting cortical bone integrity compared to overload training in skeletally mature  ...  PURPOSE-This study sought to elucidate the effects of a low-and high-load jump resistance exercise (RE) training protocol on cortical bone of the tibia and femur mid-diaphyses.  ...  Furthermore, five jumps per day in growing rats improved bone mass and strength with few differences versus animals jumped between 10 and 40 times per day (34) .  ...
